Footwear that helps the blind walk without a cane

November 23, 2016

Walking around is one of the toughest things for a visually challenged person to do even with a cane.

To help overcome this, Krishna Sai Inkoolu from Visakhapatnam has invented footwear that can help them walk without a stick.

The 'Taparch Footwear' has an embedded electronic circuit that senses obstacles in the way and communicates it to the visually challenged person with a tap.

This helps them stay safe. The design has been supported by the National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad.
