IntelliGaze IG-30 – is a hardware eye-tracking module, which was developed and created by Alea Technologies GMBH. This device tracks user’s sight direction, which allows controlling any computer remotely, e.g. typing text in applications, sending e-mails, surfing web pages and playing games. Functionality and price of this gadget depend on the set of purchased software.
This device perfectly fits patients with various health problems, e.g. amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, spinal canal damages, cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis. IntelliGaze IG-30 allows the user to forget about traditional manipulators (keyboard and mouse). This program complex can be used even by people with nystagmus (uncontrolled high frequency trembling of the pupils) and spastic head movements.
IG-30 uses an infrared emitter and a registering camera in order to detect user’s sight direction. The working field of this device is 30cm x 20cm x 20cm, while accuracy of tracking is not lower than 0.5 degree. Calibration time is a little bit longer than 10 seconds. Initial installation and setting procedures can take around 30 minutes. IntelliGaze IG-30 works under Windows operational systems and requires computers with working frequency of 1.5 GHz or higher.
IG-30 can be easily used in conjunction with various applications for those with disabilities, i.e. symbol or pictographic keyboards, speech synthesizers. The program complex is based on IntelliGaze app centre, which allows the user to control any other installed applications from third party developers.
Intelligaze IG-30 was developed as a part of a multifunctional assistive complex for patients with full or partial loss of motor activity. This eye-tracking system can be conveniently used at home or medical and rehabilitation centers. Wide choice of auxiliary software may fit specific patient’s needs. Furthermore, Intelligaze IG-30 can be used in some cases, when other eye-tracking system can't be properly implemented (in case of disease, which causes pupil trembling or uncontrolled head movements). When used in home conditions, this device makes it possible to use a PC, i.e. browser, email and easy games. For rehabilitation in medical centers Intelligaze IG-30 can be used in conjunction with various virtual keyboards and speech synthesizers.
