Technology

A core element within the Team Gleason mission is to provide advanced technology for people with ALS (pALS), and empower them to continue living purposeful lives. It costs roughly $260,000 a year to live with the disease, which often leaves patients without the ability to afford even simple communication devices, let alone the latest technology. In its first year, Team Gleason funded nearly $80,000 in assistive technology for pALS in need. Currently, Team Gleason is partnering with leading technology companies to purchase eye tracking portable computers in bulk for an economy of scale to benefit more pALS, more quickly.
