    My thoughts on the EyeGaze Edge vs Tobii

    When I began trimming my update, I included the first two paragraphs... and that was too much. This really is ridiculous... and sad. :(

    The new stands arrived from Germany, today. I haven't opened them, yet. And here's a picture of the nifty carry case for it all... My best... Jim [PART 4 & THE END OF THIS UPDATE]

    My thoughts on the EyeGaze Edge vs Tobii

    From my perspective, I offer this - Her asking me to "fix" something has reduced considerably. The display might be 1/2" smaller than her previous one... but it seems to be better in color and sharper in image. We're getting better and quicker calibrations than we had been getting on the older...

    Darcey used the new Eyegaze Edge all of yesterday. I asked multiple times what she thought... and she said, "Its not much different." I've asked her if she likes it any better... and she says, "Its not much different." I asked her if she felt the display was any better... and she said, "Its...

    So... I set up login credentials for all the things that Darcey uses which require them. I then logged her Home Page (as Facebook) and created Items on the Bookmark Bar so she could easily go where she wants. For many items, there are two ways to get into a web location... (1) go to the...

    The new Eyegaze Edge arrived, today. It was packaged into a spiffy backpack (I'll take pictures, later). Piece by piece, I took items out of the backpack and put them in place. Everything... and I mean EVERYTHING... was in its own protective case, mesh bag or box. It appears to be built on...

    Under Private Insurance (ours was Anthem BC/BS), both eyegaze and PWCs were under a "5-Year Restriction" for replacement. Also under Private Insurance, we were only allowed one Trilogy... which is "rented" on a monthly basis. Darcey's Trilogy provider was Med Inc. and they tried to get a...

    Update - Eyegaze Edge Last night I signed the contract for a new Eyegaze Edge Talker. They now have two camera systems - one with a camera that focuses on a single eye (as we've been using) and one that focuses on both eyes. They recommended the single eye camera for Darcey as, for her, it...

    Wow! What wonderful additional comments. I'm sure that many can find useful items in these posts. As I said in my post... and as others have either said or implied... we can tell you about what we've been successful with (or had issues with)... but we can't tell you what is right for your own...

    I was finally able to cut up the response into shorter pieces and placed it in a new thread within the Caregivers area. If this is a new change, I don't care for it. Thanks for all of your help, Nikki! You ARE the BEST!!! Jim

    Aziz, I'm sorry for having to break apart my response. I've never had to do that before. I might be nearing my "lifetime max word count" here in the forums. :) Jim
