We have a patient who has been using Eye Tracking for years (very successfully), but the disease he has is progressing and his control of his eyes and eye lids are degrading.
What recommendations do you have? What other options are there beyond eye gaze/eye tracking?
How do I communicate these options to insurance and to family members?
For 10 years I have seen hundreds of ALS, CP, SCI, TBI or other Motor Neuron Disorders clients who sometimes suddenly are unable to use their eye gaze system even though many of them have been successfully using their device for many time years. In my experience there are a few great options which can help during periods where users for some reason or another are unable to get their system tracking. Here are a few things I have learned that I thought I would share in hopes that it will help someone who might be going through a rough time right now and unable to use their device.
