iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2020

Visually impaired women experience a higher level of stress during menstruation, often exacerbated by the common societal perception that they are 'uninvolved in reproduction' and cannot be sexual beings. Warm Touch helps to make the experience of menstruation less stressful for them. The near-infrared rays help blind women detect moisture on a sanitary pad so that they can easily know when it need to be changed.

We hope to contribute with our work to a world where everyone can live equally without discrimination. Thank you for recognising our work with the iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD.
