Eyegaze Edge

The world’s most advanced eye-driven tablet communication system.
Internationally trusted and locally loved, our Eyegaze Edge continues to be the device of choice by locked-in users and their OTs/SLPs. 


How does the Eyegaze Edge work?

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. 

Eye-Line Graphic

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.

Eyegaze Edge Calibration

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.

I have been using the Eyegaze system for a little over 4 years now since I lost the ability to move the mouse with my hands due to ALS. 
The ability to access the computer with the Eyegaze System has probably been the greatest contributor of my quality of life.

Cerebral Palsy 

The Eyegaze Edge allows users with CP to participate in everyday life, while adapting to user positioning and angle seamlessly. 

Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a condition marked by impaired muscle coordination (spastic paralysis) and/or other disabilities impacting communication, typically caused by damage to the brain before or at birth. Many children and adults with CP are currently using the Eyegaze Edge to participate in school, from kindergarten through college and in the workplace. 

Eyegaze Edge Features 

Simple Setup and 15-Second Calibration 
Eye Re-Aquisition in 1/30 Second

Multiple Sclerosis 

Users are able to maintain communication with the Eyegaze system, even as physical abilities decline. 

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, debilitating disease of the central nervous system that affects the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves, and communication systems in over 2.5 million people worldwide. 

Different classifications of MS show differing outward progressions of the disease, thus making the need for MS treatment highly individualized. For many people with MS, the slow or rapid decay in neurological and motor function will ultimately lead to a decline in communication ability. 

Eyegaze Edge Features

Compensates for Declining Communicative Abilities 
No Dependence on Motor Skills 
Low Eye Fatigue 

Muscular Dystrophy, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, and Werdnig-Hoffman 

Users find the Eyegaze Edge a fast and easy method of computer access, even if they retain verbal and head control to use other methods. 

Muscular Dystrophy is a hereditary condition characterized by progressive weakening of muscle systems. Spinal muscular atrophie (SMA) is a group of disorders characterized by the degeneration of lower motor neurons, causing atrophy of various muscle groups in the body, including muscles needed for communication in some cases. 
SMA is categorized by type: Type I, ranging from severe physical impairments, to type IV with mild weakness and impairments. Individuals with SMA are alert, interactive and eager to communicate and access the world of technology! 

Eyegaze Edge Features 

Works at Many Different Angles 
Easily Finds User's Eye at Any Head Angle or Lean 
Can Be Used By Young Children 

Rett Syndrome 

Some user interaction via the Eyegaze system is possible, but results are still being studied and evaluated.  Rett Syndrome is a rare genetic postnatal neurological disorder of the brain that impacts body function and cognitive linguistic skills.  While it used to be assumed that individuals with Rett Syndrome were not capable of intentional communication, current clinical practice and research are highlighting varying methods to access communication in these individuals. 

A current, detailed discussion can be found by Dr. Theresa Bartolotta on the PrAACtical AAC Blog. 

A small percentage of evaluations done using the Eyegaze Edge with individuals with Rett Syndrome have resulted in accurate calibration and use. On the other hand, some were able to calibrate using the Eyegaze Edge but were not able to use the device in meaningful ways. 

Since behaviors and measurable indicators of cognitive linguistic abilities can vary greatly within this population, it is best to proceed with professionals who are well seasoned in working with Rett Syndrome who understand factors of success for the individual client. 

Spinal Cord Injuries 

Users find the Eyegaze Edge a fast and easy method of computer access, even if they retain verbal and head control to use other methods. 

Quadriplegia resulting from spinal cord injury presents no limitations for Eyegaze Edge operation. The Eyegaze Edge is often an excellent tool for people who are ventilator-dependent and quadriplegic. 

Eyegaze Edge Features 

Allows Users To Manipulate Computers More Quickly 
Speech Generation for Non-Verbal Users 
No Dependence on Head Movement 
Low Eye Fatigue

Testimonies

My arms and hands were deteriorating quite rapidly meaning I couldn’t work anymore. The Eyegaze saved my software engineering job. I can control a Mac and do everything with my eye that I used to do with my hands. I can respond to email, I can surf the web, and I can hold conversations…
Jim
Software Engineer, MIT

Thank you and everyone you work with. My son Jack is laying in his hospital bed right now using his Eyegaze to chat with his friends on Facebook, check his email, and he just posted on his web page… the nurses and doctors are amazed watching him do all of this with a breathing tube in his throat and about 20 other assorted lines attached to various parts of his body.
Al

I can read books using Kindle, listen to music, email, surf the web, play games, and more. I am once again my old self. Without it I would be a prisoner in my body, with it I am the same smart guy I used to be, with the exception of being paralyzed.

My student does research on the Internet for the library, with the aid of her Eyegaze Communication System, and she loves it.
Mary Whitley

My son Jason is 16 years old and he has cerebral palsy… ‘Dad, I need you’ is one of the many things I hear on a daily basis that I never imagined I would hear. Today I couldn’t imagine a life without this device… They have given my son a platform to stand on that can lead him to his own independence.
