Discipline: Professional Concept

This water purifier is specially designed for the elderly, blind, and hearing-impaired, providing easy and convenient use. Simply swipe over the top panel and the lighting colors indicate the corresponding water temperature: room-temperature water in yellow-green; lukewarm water in yellow-orange; hot water in red. The icons on the display also allow the color blind to easily recognize the water temperature. The voice-guide feature provides information about functions you have selected and with simple dictation. The control panel’s 30-degree slope is ergonomically designed for comfortable hand movements.
