The VisuALS System
VisuALS is an affordable assistive communication (eye tracking) device that allows people to communicate and stay connected with their world by using only their eyes. The VisuALS system was originally developed by students at Oklahoma Christian University as part of an engineering senior capstone project. The students were originally tasked with helping ALS patients communicate with their eyes, but many different types of individuals may benefit from the VisuALS system including people with ALS & other motor neuron diseases, stroke victims, those with spinal cord injuries, non-verbal children with autism, people with muscle dystrophy, and more.
With an on-screen keyboard and predictive text, users can quickly type what’s on their heart. Along with the keyboard, there are 4 categories of phrases – needs, feelings, conversation and home automation.
The VisuALS notepad acts similar to a word document. The notepad allows users to easily type out notes, longer thoughts, speeches, prayers, or whatever else is on their heart. They can then save it as a file and open it later.
Our unique web browser allows users to surf the internet, send emails, access social networks and more.
Using an Amazon Echo Dot and other smart home controls, you can use our system to control your environment. You can do things such as turn on and off the lights, turn the TV channel and so much more.
“The VisuALS system is very user friendly and is a great alternative to the very expensive communication devices that have been available for many years. The cost is about the cost of the co-payment of the other devices. This system only took my patient about 5 minutes to figure out how to use. I have been looking for this for a long time! Thank you!”

“I bought the VisuALS system for my mom who has ALS and I am now able to communicate with her again!!! The system is very easy to set up, use, and enjoy. The representative and co founder has been unbelievable in helping me through the process and continues to help with any questions I may have. I cannot say enough about what a great device this truly is for those unable to communicate with their loved ones. It definitely gets a 5 star rating from my mom and I!!!!!!!”
“My wife Julie is very impressed with the VisuALS system. She feels it is more intuitive and easier to use than many other devices we’ve looked at with a much higher price point. To that end she decided she’d like to get one now rather than waiting. We are pleased to have the VisuALS unit well before my wife loses all ability to speak thereby giving her time to get comfortable with it before it is her only option to communicate.”
