Enabling the mobility of quadraplegic patients at the blink of an eye.
Patients with quadraplegic conditions do not have an intuitive and non-intrusive hands-free method of controlling their wheelchair.

We hope to grant control to late stage patients who have lost control of their hands and legs and rely on a powered wheelchair for mobility.
We will achieve this by developing an add-on device which allows quadreplegic patients to independently control their powered wheelchairs using gaze tracking.
We are a team of Mechatronics Engineering students from the University of Waterloo.
Our team has a wide range of experience in robotics, computer vision, medical devices and embedded systems.
