    1. Hi Wendy,

      It’s best for you to make direct contact with the supplier yourself
      The Turnout is a swivel seat designed for those who find it difficult to enter a vehicle or make a transfer from the wheelchair. Installed as a layer between the vehicle’s floor and the car seat the Turnout enables the car seat to be rotated facing outwards.
      Also, make contact with you local Toyota car dealer in relation to the compatibility of this product with your own car?

  2. To whom it may concern,

    I use my computer and laptop with eyegaze.
    You know an app for control my Smart Phone by my eyes on Android phone? Please.
    Kind regards Kurt Micallef

    1. Hi Kurt,

      There is limited eye gaze control in Android with Look to Speak App for Android. Although described as an eye gaze access method, it is not what we associate with true eye gaze – the user does not look at the phrase directly for selection. Instead, the inbuilt smartphone or tablet camera is used to interpret if the user looking to the left or right in an exaggerated motion. An elimination system is then used, where the user gradually narrows down the range of options (phrases) available until only one remains. This is then spoken aloud using the Text to Speech settings of the smartphone or tablet.
