Tech enables people with disabilities to dance
Choreographer Chris Fonseca became deaf when he was a young boy after an attack of meningitis. Thanks to a SubPac strapped to his back, he is able to dance and teach dancing to the students at his studio in the UK.
The SubPac is widely used in the music industry to help music producers feel the music without damaging their ears. It works by transferring low, bass frequencies directly to the body, providing the physical dimension to sound.
By using the SubPac, Chris is able to give deaf dancers in his classes an opportunity to feel the music so they can learn his choreography without difficulty.
