What people are saying about VisuALS
Recent Customer Reviews
"It's always encouraging to hear we are making a difference when we serve a community of families suffering from so much loss." - Seth Reiter, VisuALS Chief Operating Officer
"Perhaps the worst thing about the ALS progression was losing the ability to communicate with my wife. The Visuals system gave us that back including being able to joke around. It took some practice and adjustment but was well worth it. The Visuals team deserve all the praise that could be heaped upon them." - Mario Caruso
"My husband has ALS and is essentially paralyzed from the neck down and can no longer use his hands. The eye gaze system allows him to independently navigate the internet, play music, read the news, and do research using only his eyes. He uses it every day and we don't know what he would do without it. Using the VisuALS is the only thing that he can independently do for himself, and that means the world to him. We use it outdoors and have not had issues with glare that our friends have experienced using the more expensive devices. The cost was affordable for us, and the customer service we received was outstanding, when I called in with a question.' - Charles Richards
