Eye gaze controlled Power wheelchair

eye controlled wheelchair via tablet mounted on wheelchair

EyeTech Digital Systems, has partnered with Quantum Rehab to bring eye controlled wheel chairs to individuals who are unable to use hand controls. EyeTech’s eye tracking technology mounts directly to a tablet PC and allows the user to control the entire computer using eye movements. The system then mounts to the wheelchair. An eye control driving app gives the user the ability to drive hands-free. The driving controls are overlaid on the scene camera.  Simply looking at the driving controls activates them to control the basic directions and movements of the chair.

  1. Are the units available for retail? Do they work with any power chair? I live in Canada and have ALS. Regards Troy

    1. Hi Troy,

      They supply Quantum Rehab power wheelchairs which is the power wheelchair in the video.

  2. How can one find out about this, and where it is available at and how to get this technology on a power chair?

        1. Hi Ken, EyeTech (eye gaze system) is a US company, although they have not pursued to have a specific product for power wheelchair control. However, others are using Eyetech’s eye gaze systems to control power wheelchairs. You might be interested in Ability Drive which is currently available in the US. Another interesting project is EyeDrivematic

    1. Hi Robert,

      I don’t think it is compatible with Invacare chairs at the moment. It works on Permobil and Quantum QLogic wheelchairs. However, maybe contact the manufacturer/supplier below yourself to see what they have planned.
