VisuALS – A Simple and Affordable Assistive Communication Device

 

VisuALS is an affordable assistive communication (eye tracking) device that allows people to communicate and stay connected with their world by using only their eyes. The VisuALS system was originally developed by students at Oklahoma Christian University as part of an engineering senior capstone project. The students were originally tasked with helping ALS patients communicate with their eyes, but many different types of individuals may benefit from the VisuALS system including people with ALS & other motor neuron diseases, stroke victims, those with spinal cord injuries, non-verbal children with autism, people with muscle dystrophy, and more. 

What Is VisuALS?

The VisuALS System is an integrated alternative communications solution comprised of a tablet computer, eye tracking bar (purchased separately), bluetooth speaker, a case, a mount unit and proprietary software. All of these elements are pre-integrated by VisuALS before shipping to you to simplify initial setup. Features of the system include text-to-speech, web browser, notepad, home automation controls, commonly used phrases, and more.
