Whom HEADCUBE® is made for?

1,0 mio.

severely disabled
HEADCUBE® is specialized for ~ 1 million people in Germany with functional limitations of the upper limbs. The solution is used, among others, by people with tetraplegia, cerelpral palsy and all those who cannot operate a tablet independently with their hands.

3,4 mio.

in need of care
HEADCUBE® is aimed at those who have the desire for easier and more intuitive operation of digital applications. Many are overwhelmed by the complexity, the diversity and the high number of apps and end devices. HEADCUBE® is easy to understand because all functions are always displayed in the four fields.

The control system

Specifically developed control system through head movements

Users can control the tablet with their head alone. This is possible with the help of AI-based analysis of head movements by the front camera of the mobile device. 

HEADCUBE® can thus recognize how the head is positioned in relation to the screen and reacts to changes in this position by triggering the control. Through head movement, the position of the head is changed and thus an input is initiated.

 

Touch control remains available as a supplementary input option.

How it works

Intuitive navigation through simple input options

The input menu always consists of four fields. The desired fields are selected by head movements. The control runs parallel to the head movements:

  • turn the head to the side, steers to the right or left respectively
  • moving the head vertically controls up or down
  • optionally, eye closure can be added to the control

HEADCUBE®’s scanning control system allows to use the application with only one direction of movement.

In the scanning process, the four input fields are marked one after the other at an individual pace and users select the desired field by their direction of movement.

What users say about HEADCUBE®

Now I don't have to call my kids or my assistant to tell them, "Hey, I need this, I need that," but I can do it independently....

I use HEADCUBE® all the time... I use it for everything.
