Smart Glass Application by Munevo @Munevo GmbH

Healthy people can hardly imagine what it is like to be immobile and have to sit in a wheelchair. It is especially difficult for those who cannot move their mobile vehicle manually. As then they are always dependent on the help of others. This is unpleasant, uncomfortable and stigmatizing. The start-up company Munevo has designed a unique Smartglass application that enables wheelchair users to control their wheelchairs by moving their head. A huge gain in autonomy and consequently a higher quality of life for those affected. Thanks to the application, they are able to become a bit more free and independent again. A further bonus is that the innovative control system is now covered by health insurance funds.
