Enjoyed watching Sophie Morgan @sophmorg on @BBCTheOneShow last night. Sophie was using assistive technology being developed by which wheelchairs can be controlled by the eyes.
A number of our tetraplegic clients have benefitted from this sort of technology. @pencilpicasso blogs - and does much more besides- using a smartnav system whereby the mouse is essentially a dot on his nose. Impressive eyegaze tech was also demonstrated by tobii dynavox at a recent @spinalinjuries training day. Plus @brethertonsllp charity of the year Special Effect uses this sort of kit so that people are able to engage in video game and computer use. The technology is developing so quickly and so positively.
It's so cool!" - @sophmorg was very impressed with the eye-movement controlled wheelchair
