Assistive technology is not one-size-fits-all. V-LINC’s Volunteers for Medical Engineering service provides customized assistive technology that makes it easier for people with disabilities to live, work, and play more independently. Our volunteers design and build both high-tech and low-tech solutions to meet needs large and small.
Shopping Assistant for the Blind The See assistive technology concept aims to alleviate some of the difficulties in the process of product consumption that affect so many people with visual impairments. The ingenious bracelet-to-headphone system allows the user to scan bar-codes directly from their wrist and receive real-time audio information about the product at hand. Using the tool, visually impaired users can now compare prices of similar items.
