GlassChair "MunevoDrive"a smart glass application that helps people with disabilities to gain independent mobility and self-determination.
  • Drive your wheelchair without using your hands
  • With head movements and voice commands you steer your wheelchair
  • After the adapter is connected, you can start driving straight away
Spinal cord injuries, loss of limbs or diseases such as Parkinson's and multiple sclerosis affect people worldwide. These injuries and diseases can lead to the fact that the affected persons can only move their head. These people rely on wheelchairs with special controls (chin and head controls). However, the existing special controls are uncomfortable in use: they limit the field of vision, are only individually adaptable to a limited extent, and specialist personnel is always required for assembly/changes.
In addition, current solutions do not take into account that each affected person has different possibilities to carry out certain movements.
MUNEVO has developed a new special control system for people who are physically restricted and who can hardly or not conventionally control an electric wheelchair. In contrast to established, mostly mechanical controls, MUNEVO DRIVE detects head movements and voice command for the first time with the help of a smart glass. MUNEVO offers software that is adaptable to the gestures the patient wants and is able to exercise as control signals. In addition, the adapter developed by MUNEVO is a plug- and-play solution. The adapter can be easily connected to common models of electricwheelchairs - without the assistance of qualified personnel. Thus, MUNEVO DRIVE is adjusted to the needs of people with disabilities and much more comfortable to use. In the future, MUNEVO DRIVE will evolve from a control solution to a day-to-day assistant.  People can then control different applications with their gestures: Robot arm(Kinova), barrier-free navigation for wheelchairs, telephoning / photographing with in-
dividual gestures and smart home applications.
