Reply To: Has any gbs patient used communication cards? Did they help?
Letter boards worked for me (rows and columns). They tried to get me to use a computer that followed the pupil movement in my eyes and that movement would move a curser across a computer screen to form letters. It worked, but I didn’t like that approach. Then they tried having me use a mouse that sensed my slightest motion, but I didn’t have any movement so it didn’t work. Letter boards worked well for me, but everyone needs patience. I was in the hospital for 4-months with only eye movement. I could see and hear everyone around me and just having people there talking to me helped my spirits. The letter board made 2-way communication possible.
