Those who are paralyzed neck down have limited number of options to control their wheelchairs. Some of the available controls have huge disadvantages-for instance, joysticks located next to the chin are not very comfortable to use. This can make the wheelchair movement jerky.

GyroSet, is a system developed by Márton Juhász and Now Technologies and is an Android tablet-powered system which enables a person to use his head to direct the wheelchair.

The users wear a head set that can find the position of the head and this data is sent to a tablet which interprets the movements and sends signals to the electric wheelchair. The system is inexpensive to implement and obliterates the need of the joystick from the front of the face.
