Category: Autonomy

Tape measure with an inclinometer and level that uses voice technology. This tape helps you to measure surfaces and spaces easily with the most autonomy and precision. A clear voice informs you quickly about slopes and measurements.

This tape measure, which is made of flexible material and has tactile markings, is very useful for anyone who is blind or with low vision. The combination of tactile markings and high-contrast numbers enables it to be used comfortably. It is suitable for any type of user.

This is a very practical device with advanced technology. It is useful, easy to use and also has voice technology. It distinguishes between 1,000 shades of colour as well as patterns and contrasts that convert to musical tones so that the blind person may associate colours better.

This device helps to improve personal autonomy. It is extremely helpful for those who have lost their sight and would like to be aware of the colours of their clothing or any other type of object. The musical tones it produces can help anyone who wants to recognise colour patterns on a surface although this feature can be too specific for the elderly or those who simply want to recognise a smell. This is a creative device with a rather precise level of colour recognition although factors like lighting and the device’s position should be taken into account when gauging colour.

Alarm clock with a very large display for easy viewing of the time or setting the alarm. It includes a vibrating accessory to be placed under the pillow, enabling one to be woken without bothering anyone else.

This device is recommended for those with low vision as it has a large screen with which to set waking-up times.
In addition, if the person also suffers from a condition that affects their hearing, the vibrating accessory will help detect the sound of the alarm. It should be noted that this device cannot be used by those who are totally blind.

This helps those with visual difficulties to fill containers with liquids and avoid the spillage that they may find difficult to clean up.

One of the many questions raised by people when they go blind is: how do I fill glasses, cups and jugs?
This utility is good for those who are entering the world of blindness and require help to improve their personal autonomy skills. It is very easy to use; place it on the edge of the container to be filled, and simply wait until you hear a sound indicating that the contents have reached the top.

A more than practical utility: from now on, your socks will always be organised, each with its pair and always straight from your washing machine or drier to your drawer. Order is important, and having control over your socks will bring you peace of mind at all times.

For a blind person, tidiness in their home extends to their garments and this is extremely important. These small objects are very useful for placing socks in pairs. They may be placed in the washing machine and drier with no problems. They are recommended for those who are totally blind, who have low vision and relatives who live with them as they will help to keep order as well as improving personal autonomy.

An alarm clock with multiple functions: time, date, room temperature, alarm and a stopwatch. Each function is lit in a different colour. It has a large screen that makes it easy to read. It is a device that is both easy-to-use and useful. 

When the visually-impaired are faced with a decrease in visual acuity, they often believe that their normality will never be what it was: looking at the time, setting an alarm, etc. These are day-to-day issues that a device like this can solve through its large screen and colours that can be easily distinguished for their buttons.
Someone with visual problems who needs enlarged numerals will find the problem solved with a device of this type. For this reason, it is only recommended for those with residual vision who need an enlarged screen.

A watch whose speaker in the upper half will tell the time loud and clear when you need it, just by pressing a button.
Especially suitable for those who are totally blind or have low vision.

The reasons why blind people prefer this type of watch to a Braille tactile one usually include the fact that their sense of touch is under-developed or that they went blind when they were older. A device that facilitates their everyday actions to keep track of time is to be recommended. Likewise, many blind people prefer the comfort of a voice as when they press a button they immediately await a response. This is much easier for them in quiet environments or when there is low background noise.

Research is the only solution for the future to fight against blindness

It is only with your help that we can fight against blindness
