Project information


The charity aims to purchase three cutting-edge gaze-controlled computers and, when a system is required, the hospitals concerned will contact SpecialEffect, who will collaborate with the hospital team, friends and family to provide the training and support to ensure that the person who needs it has a personalised and fully functioning system as soon as possible. During the loan period of a gaze-controlled computer, it’s confidently anticipated that the quality of life of the person involved will have improved considerably and they will have had the time and support necessary to discover if the technology would be beneficial to them over the longer term. They will have gained the evidence they need to be able to fundraise for themselves or apply for statutory funding. At this point, the SpecialEffect system can be loaned to another person who needs it and the training, support and personalisation process can begin again
