Control your wheelchair with your eyes

Ability Drive is an alternative control interface that enables you to control a powered wheelchair with your eyes. Using virtual buttons and eye gaze technology, people who are not able to use a joystick can regain movement and seat positioning independence.

Ability Drive ® – How it works

Ability Drive is a combination of hardware and an app. The Ability Drive app runs on an approved eye gaze device.

The app senses your gaze on virtual buttons which send directional movement commands to the Ability Drive hardware interface.

These buttons overlay the forward camera view. You will always have the option to look what is in front of you through the camera.

Looking at the stop button, looking away from the computer, or closing your eyes stops wheelchair movement. If the camera looses the connection with the eyes the wheelchairs movement will stop.
