The tangible orientation aid for the blind and visually impaired
Orienting oneself and finding one’s way is a challenge of varying difficulty for different people. With the naviBelt you can master this challenge, because directions can now be felt , by means of vibrations around the stomach. As a silent companion, it blends in well with your everyday life. On the way, you will remain confident of orientation and will find your way independently. Research has shown that the navibelt saves attention resources, relieves strain on the ears and improves orientation. The naviBelt was developed from research in collaboration with the blind and visually impaired and tailored specifically to their needs. The navibelt is very well suited as a helper in everyday life, because it is barrier-free and easy to understand. In order to improve orientation even further, we now have the innovative mobile reading device OrCam on offer for you. You can find more information here
Orientation in everyday life
The naviBelt has 16 evenly distributed vibration units , so, for example, the north, which serves as your anchor point, can be tangibly displayed 360 ° around your body axis . You can even recognize slight rotations immediately, because the vibration signal then travels around your stomach accordingly. You can also better assess curves and changes of direction with the naviBelt and avoid unintentional turns. In the city, you can move more safely, crossing streets and squares in a straight line. Even if you have to avoid an obstacle, you can immediately align yourself again along the road and continue straight ahead.
With our navibelt we would like to help you to be more independent and to participate in social life, so we have paid attention to ease of use . The naviBelt can also be operated by people who have little previous experience with technical devices. The navibelt supports you in doing more, having more confidence and going your own way again.
Go safer ways
With the specially developed, barrier-free iPhone app, you can simply tell the naviBelt a destination – also by voice input. The navibelt then shows you the direct direction by means of a vibration signal on your stomach. Your ears remain free, so that your attention is spared. This allows you to focus on other sounds. Go your own way independently and independently !
We are currently preparing a connection to other apps (e.g. Blind Square) so that you can also use tried-and-tested apps for orientation with the naviBelt and, for example, follow a precise route to your destination. Without a smartphone, the belt works as a tangible compass and lets you feel where north is.
The FeelSpace app for iPhone can be used barrier-free with Voiceover.
With the navibelt you can keep your direction easier and better assess turns.
You have your ears and hands free.
