StreetLight™ Low Vision Mobility Devices
Technical Vision is developing practical, easy to use and innovative mobility aids that assist travelers with low vision to reduce the risk of falling by providing bright, foot-level lighting to enhance depth perception and contrast sensitivity so that obstacles in the travel path are more easily seen and avoided. Prototype devices are now being tested and optimized under field conditions by mobility professionals and individuals with a variety of different types of visual impairments.
StreetLight™ Support cane illuminating stairs, an outdoor sidewalk and bedside area at night.
The telescoping StreetLight™ mobility cane is under development to provide bright illumination around the traveler’s feet and several feet ahead of the cane tip. When fully retracted, the cane is approximately 24” long and easily stowed when not in use.
Testimonials from StreetLight™ cane users.
Technical Vision Inc. is developing innovative laser-based optical imaging technology that represents a significant advance in obstacle recognition for medical and nonmedical uses. The optical sensor system is unique in its ability to inform the visually impaired and blind traveler whether the obstacle ahead in the travel path is rising (e.g. bottom of a staircase, up-curb) or a drop-off (e.g., pothole, down-curbs, top of a staircase) through tactile or acoustical feedback.
Technical Vision’s laser sensor technology will be incorporated into many types of assistive devices including canes, manual and motorized wheelchairs, scooters, walkers and other personal mobility aids.
