Eyegaze Edge, the eye-tracking technology, helps disabled people communicate with eyes
March 7, 2018
Eyegaze Edge is a device that uses a computer monitor, a specialized camera, and software that can use the eyes to give commands.
Many people are calling it a medical miracle.
By looking at control keys or cells displayed on a screen, a person with a disability can generate speech or type a message. A specialized video camera watches the eye movements and does all the work.
Eyegaze enables a disabled person to write emails, check social media, stream movies, and music, with little effort. It is especially useful for people with locked-in syndrome. This is a condition where a person can hear and see, but cannot speak or move.
Eyegaze is helping people with Multiple Sclerosis and cerebral palsy.
