Eyegaze Edge Tablet
The Eyegaze Edge Tablet is an augmentative communication device. This item is a tablet that can be controlled with the user's eyes. Nothing is attached to the user's head or body, as a special eye tracking camera mounted below the Eyegaze Edge screen observes one of the user's eyes. The user 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. These keys can be used to generate speech, either by typing a message or by selecting pre-programmed phrases. The Eyegaze Edge Tablet can be paired with a smartphone for use with text messaging and calls. It also has email and internet integration. Individuals with Dexterity limitations may benefit from using this device to complete essential job functions.
