LUCY is a special keyboard for those who cannot use a normal keyboard. It is an alternative to operate a personal computer, communication device or printer. It`s designed for people that cannot use their hands easily. LUCY can be operated with your head without making you look very different from non-disabled people, like when you use a head pointer.
Just a headband or a par of glasses is enough, mount a little laser-pointer, some practice and the sky is the limit. Someone with severe Cerebral Palsy can type 100 keys per minute. People with good head-control reach as much as 120 keys per minute. This kind of typing-speed isn`t easily reached using a head pointer. LUCY is a perfect solution for anyone who`s using a head pointer.
If you connect Lucy to a computer or laptop with Windows XP or Vista, you can operate any program you want. You can just type letters or poems to express your feelings. Or you can use the mouse-function and draw. Of course you can surf on internet and send e-mails or even play games. Lucy also can be mounted on your wheelchair and connected to a laptop, talking device or a printer.
