Story

Problem
Mobility is an everyday challenge for people who are blind and having low vision. The constant loss of orientation, the inability to protect the body against obstacles in the environment and missing out on important cues for navigation means frequent accidents, body injuries leading to frustration, anxiety and loss of confidence.

Unfortunately, available aids only offer a limited solution. Currently most of blind people use white canes for obstacle detection and navigation however it leaves a gap when it comes to obstacles present above knee level.

Simple cane can help guarantee the next step, but they’re unable to detect upper-body obstacles (such as tree branches, sign posts, etc.) which are one of the leading causes of accidents. We are trying to address this need through provision of assistive solution to these people.

Vision
Our aim is to make around 400 visually impaired people achieve full and equal participation into life through this assistive solution. The smart assistive device mount on white cane and informs the user of obstacles using real time haptic feedback.

Solution
The assistive solution will give more information about environment and enables them to make decisions much more quickly, allowing them to move around more safely, confidently and effectively; putting them in full control. Through this solution we are trying to expand possibilities for the visually impaired.

Support Required
The total amount required to assist 400 visually impaired people is Rs.12,40,000 (400 * Rs.3100).

Request to support blind beneficiaries received from National Association for the Blind (Gujarat) and CBM India Trust (Delhi). Assistive solution would be provided equally to these institutions from the donation received.

What does package include
Package include 1 Assistive Device + 1 White Cane + 1 Charger + Delivery + GST 5% + Training
