ENABLE / Disability aid


In spite of a world where technology continues to progress at unprecedented rates, those living with visual impairment continue to go about their lives utilising age-old methods. After frequently observing people 'biting the bullet' and limiting their lives through the use of canes, I approached a welfare group and discussed what direction a new offering should take. After hearing stories about people bleeding from striking truck mirrors and the likes, my drive to develop a modernised solution became even more fervent. The final solution brings freedom, independence and a renewed 'vision' to the lives of those living with a visual impairment.
