Designed to enhance the spatial perception of those with visual impairments, Sensus is the latest in wearable assistive tech. The two-part system features separate units that attach to the user’s walking cane as well as their wrist. The sensor on the cane detects nearby obstructions and objects in their path. Upon sensing an obstacle, the user’s wristband will vibrate with increasing intensity as they approach. Tactile buttons and easy-to-feel, adjustable straps make it intuitive to use. Incredibly simple yet highly effective, it’s a great way to help inspire independence!
