PULSE / Technological Devices


PULSE consists in a noise bracelet signalizing that vibrates according to the sound stimuli of the environment in which the user is inserted, having the hearing impaired as target audience, and the objective of providing more interaction in the social environment. The PULSE has the option to register the types of sounds such as ringtones or alarms, in addition to which the vibration is signaled by the display of icons. The bracelet is made of PVC (polyvinyl chloride), because it’s durable, recyclable and a versatile material that adapts to a variety of colors and textures.
