A University of Kansas mechanical engineering student has developed a ground-breaking device that will help his uncle, who suffered a brain stem stroke in 2002 that left him a quadriplegic and unable to speak, communicate and live more independently.

The device — called Ultramouse — was designed by 22-year-old Henry Clever, a St. Louis senior who will graduate in May. The concept originated with his uncle, Henry Evans, of Palo Alto, Calif., whose mind wasn’t affected by the stroke that struck him at age 40.
