EMTEQ featured on BBC Click

VR tech company Emteq appeared on BBC Click this weekend, discussing how their technology can be used to help facial palsy patients re-train their muscles following recontructing surgery.

The video sees journalist Bethan Robertson-Smith use the technology, which she described as allowing her to "see what [her] smile actually looks like", for the first time since her accident.

It also features George Dowell, owner of Worthing Football Club. Dowell played for the club before a car accident left him paralysed from the chest down; he later decided to buy the club in 2015. Dowell trialled the technology that allowed him to control the keyboard options using a wink or a smile. He described the technology as making his day-to-day life easier, as a lot of his work involves using computers. 

The feature on BBC Click comes after Emteq received substantial funding earier in 2017.
