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 will be available for purchase in the next few weeks.
Sure, please preorder with us and we will drop you a note when the technology is available.
The Independence Drive Interface and software is distributed through our partners. Independence Drive requires that you have a powered wheelchair with a 9-pin connection port for alternative drive controls, an eye tracking computer or tablet like a Surface Pro with an Eye Tracker camera, 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.
