Torch For Visually Impaired
“Torch-It” which will help visually impaired people to detect the obstacles in their path while walking. Torch-It is a device which can do much more than the mainstream cane generally used. It is a hand held device which identifies the obstacles for the visually challenged peoples. Over 71 million of visually impaired people get embarrassed and lose their confidence when they are unable to navigate and analyze their surroundings. Torch-It will help them to easily navigate as well as identify the proximity of various obstacles around them.
A general blind person’s stick (cane) guides him only with the vertical obstacles when they are in close proximity and when it is contacted with physically. We are surrounded by all kind of gadgets and gizmos. So why don’t we have something for our visually challenged friends? We believe that they deserve much advanced equipment than the conventional cane. Our product-TORCH IT is based on the same ideology. TORCH-IT will be helpful in mobility and navigation through technology and making their lives better, smarter and easier.
Torch-it gives you a virtual hand, 0.8 to 1.5 meters of length or it can be customized accordingly. It’s highly accurate as well as economical. It is easily attached or detached on the normal cane or white cane. Or it can be used as torch, when visually impaired walking on the familiar area.
