Through our Communication Connect Program, the MND and Me Foundation provides i-Pads to people living with MND, enabling them to continue to communicate once they loose the use of their voice. You can read more HERE.
Over the last seven years, we have provided i-Pads to over 60 people but our original fleet of i-pads are now outdated technology and we need to update them for new apps to be installed.
The Grid for i-Pad app allows a person to use the i-Pad to speak for them if they have lost their voice due to MND.
The new i-Pad Pro has inbuilt eye-gaze technology that allows a person with MND to control the i-Pad with their eyes if they are unable to use their hands. This is an amazing advancement when normal eye-gaze units cost over $17,000 each.
A normal i-Pad with the Grid app installed costs $1079 and an i-Pad Pro with eye-gaze and the Grid app installed costs $2079.
This Christmas you can help us to fund these pieces of technology for Queenslanders living with MND.
