    In some families, physical disabilities can be inherited. If your child has an inherited condition such as muscular dystrophy, you may wish to speak to a genetic counsellor. A genetic counsellor will study your family history and explain the risks of any inherited condition being passed to other children. This counsellor would also be able to provide information to you when you are planning to have children if someone in your family has had an inherited disability. Speak to your family doctor or contact your local hospital for further information.

    This invention can help blind people see using their tongue. It collects information using a small digital camera attached to a pair of glasses that transmits it to a "lollipop" electrode array which the user attaches to their tongue. The digital camera sends the light information to a base unit that has the size of a cell phone that then translates the light information into electrical impulses causing a substitution of a retina function.This invention is priced at about $10,000.

    Sip and Puff Joystick
    Sip and Puff Joysticks are Sip and Puff Machines that allow people with severe motor disabilities to use a mouse on a computer. This is usually seen used by people with quadriplegia. Sip and Puff Joysticks are slightly expensive, they are usually around $1,000. Unlike Sip and Puff Wheelchairs, this will not be prescribed to you. You will most likely be able to purchase it online. An example of an website is http://www.comfortchannel.com

    and Puff
    Switch
    The Sip and Puff switch is the main part of the system. This is what determines what the sips and puffs do. They are used for people who have a motor disability. The Switches themselves can be pretty cheep based on quality, although, you can get them with wheelchairs and other machines that use the system. For a good quality one, $300 is an average price. You would be able to purchase any of these online or with a sip and puff wheelchair. A good example of a site is http://store.ergoguys.com/ac0300.html.
    The best use of this over all is definitely the Sip and Puff wheel chair. It has in general a great use for a good cause. I feel that this system will benefit wheelchair users across the world.
