Braille Rail for the Visually Impaired

This thoughtful design addresses the independence sought by visually impaired persons who prefer or have to get around spaces with out assistance from others. The Raynes Rail is a handrail system that features Braille messages located on the rail’s inner face. In addition to the raised messages, audio information can also be accessed at strategic locations (a tool which sighted individuals will also appreciate).
