Limitations on arm and hand mobility may no longer be as limiting as they once were.
In fact, the Wheelie 7 kit can be attached to any motorized wheelchair and responds to a range of facial expressions from a smile to pursed ‘kissy’ lips.
ERIC INGRAM, WHEELCHAIR USER,
“The wheelchair was a little awkward at first. Using facial expressions instead of other manual forms of movement was a little confusing, but once you use it for a decent amount of time and get comfortable with the controls, it becomes a lot more natural and easy to use.”
The Consumer Electronics Show is widely known for its gadgets. But this year a variety of products are being displayed that make life better the way the Wheelie 7 does. Esight, for one, showed off a headset that magnifies images for the visually impaired.
