Meet Sebastian!

Name: Sebastian Jansson
High school student
Home: Stockholm, Sweden
Product: Tobii Dynavox PCEye
Condition: Cerebral palsy

Nineteen-year-old Sebastian Jansson is now in his second decade of using Tobii Dynavox devices. The  technology evolves right along with him so he can enjoy greater independence with each passing year. He feels thankful when he imagines life without it.

"I would have had to communicate with the outside world with the help of my assistants." 

When Sebastian got his first  eye-tracking AAC device in fourth grade, his parents considered it a blessing yet could not help but ponder the “What ifs…?”  

“I have sometimes wondered how Sebastian would have evolved if he had access to Tobii devices earlier in life, said Thomas Jansson, Sebastian's dad. Mostly, however, he dwells on the positive.  “With Tobii devices, Sebastian controls computer technology and gets the opportunity to show his creativity and imagination, something that was impossible before.

“Perhaps the single most important benefit he has received is the he can now express his own will. The PCEye is his savior,” Thomas Jansson said.

A graphic design student at LBS Creative High School in Nyköping, Sweden, Sebastian uses the PCEye in combination with various graphic communication and illustration software to create digital artwork including 3-D images. Teacher Stefan Lundai loves having Sebastian in class. 

“This new type of technology gives the user ample opportunity to express themselves, regardless of the limitations that their bodies can place on them.”

Sebastian has been a tester for Tobii Dynavox and says his dream job would be in the IT field. 

“This new type of technology gives the user ample opportunity to express themselves, regardless of the limitations that their bodies can place on them.”
