Welcome to our website and join us to enhance the lives of Visually ImPaired and Blind (VIP) persons. We welcome everybody to actively participate to make our world just a little bit better and include more and more people in or society in general each and every day.
We have our first prototype ready and are planning the next generation with much needed enhancements.
The VIP’s who are testing the “Marchena Cane” now are giving valuable feedback.
Here is a listing:
|Enhancement||What does it do?||Why do we need it?|
|Make it collapse able – In Progress!||Enables me to easily store the cane||Comfort and freedom of clutter|
|Flashlight feedback||Informs me of the status of the flashlight, on / off, 2 hour, 1 hour battery life left||I can not see it, so I must somehow know it’s status|
|Cane balance||Better balance makes the pedulum motion less stressful on the wrist||With the lighter motion, the wrist is les susceptible to fatigue and RSI|
|Flashlight motion||Switch on automatically if I lift the cane||One sure way of knowing that the cane lights up when I cross the road|
