And this is such a different product than other eye tracking devices out there that require additional purchases of specific monitors or computer systems in order to work, as the EyeGuide Assist works with ANY computer system, including Mac.

Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has recently joined into a distribution partnership with Grinbath, LLC, to offer their eye tracking system to a larger consumer market. Founded in 2010 by a group of Texas Tech researchers who worked out of the Usability Research Lab, Grinbath's Founder and CEO, Dr. Brian Still and Grinbath's Chief Scientist, Nathan Jahnke, initially developed an alternative low-cost eye tracking system to aid in their own research. As a vital research tool for a wide range of fields, eye tracking is used in advertising, psychology, medicine and software development as it records exactly what users are seeing as they use or do something. Since most eye tracking systems are extremely expensive and cost-prohibitive for the vast majority of researchers, Still and Jahnke simply invented and built their own, discovering that as they continued to refine this prototype that it could indeed be used by others for affordable and effective eye tracking. Licensed through Texas Tech, their EyeGuide Eye Tracker was publicly unveiled in June of 2011 as the most low cost, but highly effective eye tracking system available for research.
Following that exciting wave of innovative success, Grinbath debuted another product in January of 2012 called the EyeGuide Assist, which enables users with limited or no use of their hands to navigate the web and use desktop software with their eyes. Compatible with any computer (Mac or Windows), this product allows millions of people with hand disabilities to replace the mouse with their eyes and to issue commands by dwelling, blinking and even using voice to type, click on links, or to carry out a vast array of other key activities. Incredibly affordable compared to the competition, the EyeGuide Assist also offers unparalleled performance and functionality, delivering the Grinbath commitment to developing cutting-edge, yet inclusive technologies for all.
The EyeGuide Assist does not require any other additional items, it simply works with any existing computer. Its related headgear is mobile, lightweight and takes only three AAA batteries to run, so the device can be taken anywhere the user may roam. “We are proud to introduce this amazing technology from Grinbath to more consumers,” said Hulet Smith, Founder and CEO of Rehabmart. “The EyeGuide Assist is greatly enhancing the lives of the millions of people who, for a variety of reasons, cannot use their hands to access the web. And this is such a different product than other eye tracking devices out there that require additional purchases of specific monitors or computer systems in order to work, as the EyeGuide Assist works with ANY computer system, including Mac. It is, bar none, simply the BEST and most affordable eye tracking device available on the market today.”
