Welcome to MegaBee™
MegaBee™ is a simple-to-use assisted writing tablet to aid frequent communication with people who have:

|MegaBee™ is easy-to-use and rapidly deployed, providing convenient, frequent means of communication with the carer, thus providing a much enhanced lifestyle for the user.

MegaBee™ developed in conjunction with patients
MegaBee™ was developed with the help of ‘locked-in syndrome’ sufferers at Stoke Mandeville hospital but the unit is equally applicable to stroke, MS, and motor-neuron disease patients.
It has been the saving of his sanity and of his wife and two children. We all have a great respect for the development of MegaBee™, it has been a life saver. Thank you.

... the best AAC device ever, simple but very effective ... all clinics, surgeries, hospitals should have it.

I love using my MegaBee when I can't access a computer to talk. I find it very useful and am sure it will help other people with MND (or speech problems)
[Sarah Ezekiel - MND campaigner]
I am really impressed with the system and can see lots of applications.

Harriet has tried many communication aids over the years, and has found many of them too difficult. We tried a Megabee at an exhibition and she was fantastic with it straight away. Harriet has always struggled with literacy, and with using the Megabee she has learnt to spell very quickly. It has made a huge difference to Harriet ... Fantastic!!!!!

I don't normally plug kit but having seen this I definitely believe it could be of major benefit to brain damaged patients.

The lack of suitable communication equipment and the need for communication with our daughter to be made easier and more rewarding drove us to look for a new solution. MegaBee™ is that solution and the product has been developed in close co-operation with our daughter.
