Henry Evans Biography

Imagine being aware of your environment, including feeling every sensation on your skin and being completely unable to interact with it because you’re trapped in your own body. Henry Evans knows this feeling.

At age 40, Evans was left mute and quadriplegic after a stroke-like attack caused by a hidden birth defect. Years of therapy helped him learn to move his head and use a finger - which allows him to use a head-tracking device to communicate with a computer using experimental interfaces.

Evans sought out robotics to promote his independence in his activities of daily living and to help make the life of his wife and caregiver, Jane, easier. He has become an experienced robotic user striving to help people with disabilities be more independent. By leveraging their work with some of the top minds in robotics, Evans and his wife have become tireless advocates for the disabled, openly sharing their research and experience via their organization, Robots for Humanity.
