Hi, all.  I am posting this for the benefit of my brother-in-law, whose cousin 
was recently diagnosed with ALS.  If you have any helpful information (not 
necessarily limited to his request), please e-mail to him.  Thanks in 
advance for help.

*************************************************************************

     This is a strange request, but perfectly suited to the internet.
     I need to learn about the mobility and communication systems that
     Stephen Hawking has rigged up to deal with his paralysis.  In case
     you don't recall, Hawking is the English Physicist/Cosmologist who
     wrote "A Brief History of Time."  He suffers from ALS, and a good
     friend of mine has just been diagnosed with the same problem.

     I'm interested in the hardware, the software, the cost and the
     contacts necessary to obtain or build this or a related system.  In
     other words, everything of practical significance.

     Please send email responses to:

     Feel free to forward this information to any likely informant.

                                  Thanks,
