Smart Homes For ALS Patients Helps To Live A More Independent Life
Leonard Florence Center for Living in Chelsea is a high-tech facility designed for those with a neurodegenerative disease like ALS. It currently has about 30 residents. Residents would be able to control almost everything in the house, including the lights, the TV, and more from his computer. In the mid-2000s, the CEO at Leonard Florence, Barry Berman and Saling decided to create a smart home specifically for ALS patients.
There’s a small dot on the center of his glasses, which works as a computer mouse to direct a cursor on the screen. With this seemingly mechanism, he is able to use the technology weaved within the entire house to be almost entirely independent.
This tech allows the residents to control lights, thermostats, window shades, doors, and other electrical devices. For ALS patients, this kind of independence has almost never been seen before. It improves the quality of life by a great margin. Since the company who initially worked and created this is too small to sell it affordably, it has not been able to grow the number of houses. However, if the big tech companies start doing it, it could be a great option for disabled patients.
