Full Description

A special eye tracking camera mounted below the Eyegaze Edge screen observes one of the user’s eyes.
Sophisticated image processing software analyzes the camera’s images 60 times each second and determines where the user is looking on the screen.

Nothing is attached to the user’s head or body.

A less than 15 second calibration procedure is required to set up the system for a particular user. The user looks at a small calibration point as it moves around the screen. There is no need to recalibrate if the user moves away from the screen and returns later.

A user operates the system by looking at rectangular “keys” or cells that are displayed on the control screen. To “press” a key, the user looks at the key for a specified period of time. The gaze duration required to visually activate a key, typically about ½ second, can be adjusted by the user. An array of menu keys and exit keys allow the user to navigate the Eyegaze programs independently.

Warnings

Please speak with your healthcare provider and schedule an in-person consultation before purchasing this product, to evaluate whether it is truly the best option for you.

    I would prefer to talk, but that is impossible.
    Caregivers can understand me better.
    Some bugs
    There is a learning curve.
    It’s the best product available.
