Tactile Bath System / Assistive Devices

Tactile Bath System
Tactile Bath System

Tactile Bath System is a braille system that can be installed on existing bath-room equipment in hotels and hospitals. The system's goal is to guide the visually impaired, who are unfamiliar with the place, to easily find the correct location, switch, lever, or knob to use when bathing by themselves. The system uses non-slip silicone and heat-insulating Braille markings to increase the safety and autonomy of the visually impaired when bathing.
