Swimming Helper / for visually impaired

Swimming Helper

Visually impaired swimmers have difficulty swimming straightly. They usually rely on lane markers and follow the bright colors. Moreover, they are unable to know if they arrive at the side walls. A swimming helper with LED light and sound control helps visually impaired people to swim right along the lane. The sonars on both sides can detect the swimmer’s location. The monitor will activate the vibration and the speaker when they are about to arrive at the goal. The LED lights can go twinkling and shining relatively to inform the swimmers to stop or keep going. This product can be put on different lanes easily.
