Our company started from a challenge made by Steve Gleason - he wanted to drive his wheelchair using just his eyes. Evergreen Circuits picked up the concept and in partnership with Team Gleason and Every 90 Minutes is bringing the technology to market.
The Independence Drive combines a powered wheelchair, tablet computer, and eye tracking camera into a virtual joystick which controls the movement of the wheelchair.

The Independence Drive Interface and software is distributed through our distribution partners and is currently available in the US. We are working on international distribution.
Independence Drive requires a powered wheelchair with an alternative drive controls port, an eye tracking computer or tablet, and a mounting system on your wheelchair to hold your computer or tablet.
Yes, some non-profits have funds available to help people with their technology needs. For example, Team Gleason often helps people living with ALS with their technology costs. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
