The Sesame Enable Phone is the world’s first truly hands-free device that allows users to control a smartphone with head movements.

How It Works

Sesame Enable’s app tracks head movements using a front-facing camera. A cursor appears on the screen, and the user can fully operate the phone using head movements and voice commands.

There are three options on their product page

Android App: Download the app from the Google Play store and install it on your existing Android phone (available for Android 7 and up) with a 30 day free trial! 

• No additional hardware required
• Total control using head movement
• Personalized customer care and support

Full Kit: Purchase an Android phone with a 3-year license for the Sesame software.

Medical Professionals: Be a gateway to patients who can benefit. 

Benefits to you

Independence: Operate your device on your own without any additional tools. 

Privacy: Once you've said 'Open Sesame' to open the program, the rest is controlled without your voice. 

Safety: Communicate with whoever you need on your own.  

Equality: Use your phone wherever you like for optimal convenience.

User Experiences

Gary is a quadriplegic with multiple sclerosis who uses Sesame on his Samsung Galaxy phone at least 8 hours per day. He mainly uses Sesame for browsing and interacting on social media and texting.

Bri is a teenager who enjoys connecting with her friends via social media and text. She is a C2 quadriplegic who uses Sesame every day for 5-10 hours. Bri used to rely on her mom for help with making a phone call, but with Sesame, she can make calls independently.

For Rick, a C3 quadriplegic, Sesame has brought him peace of mind. He used to make calls on his computer, but that wasn’t always reliable. Now he can make calls easily and independently using Sesame.
