A COMPLETELY immobilised man uses his eyes and state-of-the-art technology to work part time despite doctors saying he has months to live.

In August 2016 Steve Dimond was diagnosed with motor neurone disease.

The 52 year-old's body quickly deteriorated as his muscles wasted away, leaving him incapable of moving anything but his eyes.

Thanks to iGaze however, a camera attached to an iPad which tracks Mr Dimond's eyes as he looks at an alphabet, and a catalogue of voice recordings he made before losing his voice, the Newbury resident is able to keep working at DMT Development Systems Group Inc in Bracknell.

Kelly Boyson, who has started raising money in Mr Dimond's name for research into the disease, said: "Doctors said he has only months to live, but he still works for us.

"At the moment he logs in to meetings via Skype then comes back to us with ideas using his eyes.

"I don't know how many people would do that when they are at that point in their life."

Now his full time carer, Mr Dimond's wife Karen said the company had helped her husband, a former marathon runner, battle on as his body shut down.

"He is one of the most positive people I have ever met," she said.

"He is still able to work part time as a sales manager. His company have been absolutely fantastic.

"They treat him exactly as they used to. A lot of people see he is in a wheelchair and don't realise that he is mentally all there.

"Before he had it I really did not know anything about the disease. It can affect anybody. It can affect people that are really healthy."
