Tele-Tourism: Expanding the Worlds of Bedridden People

Henry’s telepresence robot takes the stage and shows how cutting-edge technology helps him live his life.

In 2003 at age 40, Henry was left mute and quadriplegic after a stroke-like attack caused by a hidden birth defect. Years of therapy helped him learn to move his head and use a finger — which allows him to use a head-tracking device to communicate with a computer using experimental interfaces.
