EyeTech Digital Systems, Inc has partnered with Quantum Rehab to bring eye controlled wheel chairs to individuals who are unable to use hand controls. A live demo will be on display at the Tech West, Sands Halls A-D at EyeTech's booth# 43372 during the CES 2017 expo.

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 video giving the functionality of a heads up display. Simply looking at the driving controls activates them to control the basic directions and movements of the chair.

"We are excited to partner with Quantum Rehab to bring this to market and empower wheel chair users with greater independence and freedom." Keith Jackson, Director of Sales for EyeTech Digital Systems.

We at Quantum are equally excited to partner with the EyeTech team in this revolutionary technology. To be able to offer clients the autonomy to drive their mobility device when no other alternatives may be available is what we are striving to accomplish - solutions."
