Equarun

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2020

Equarun is used to help deafblind people (especially those suffering from Usher Syndrome, a progressive disorder affecting more than 400,000 people worldwide) and their guides engage in safe and comfortable long-distance running. This device is capable of transmitting complex instructions on road conditions, striking a good balance between freedom and safety.

This is an idea that gives visually impaired people the chance to enjoy the freedom to run in busy traffic conditions alongside non-disabled people. The form creates meaningful visual symbolism of a 'connecting link' between the non-disabled and disabled runners.
