Medical marvels covered on YD range from tech solutions for the impaired to regular stuff like toilets and oral hygiene. Here's a look at ten medical and technological solutions for those with disabilities and not-so-impaired people. Hopefully some of them will make from the drawing board to the real-world.
Although at the moment it may be hard to fathom this concept, but designers Eun-Gyeong Gwon & Eun-Jae Lee propose a contact lens that is so technologically advanced that it works like a mouse for your computer. It's intended for people with disabilities, but that shouldn't stop the able-bodied people from experimenting with it.
Designed for the visually impaired, the Touch Sight Camera looks to be an innovative solution for those who would like to capture precious moments even though they can't literally see it.
Giving the blind an edge of independence is the Sens Phone. It's easy to use features will make it a practical device for independent use.
Quite comical to say the least, although grandma here looks quite content to use it as her hearing aid!
The Universal Toilet has a flexible design coz it can be used by both the able-bodied and people on wheelchairs conveniently.
Put me through the surgical knife but spare me the dentist! How many of us echo this sentiment…me, me me! Oral Hygiene Monitor makes sure that we won't forget our dentist; EVER!
Just because someone is blind, it's not necessary that they know Braille. Braille Interpreter is a gadget that will help them learn and interpret the language.
A scarf that acts as a comforter for those with Autism, this one includes speakers in the hood, customized aroma patches along with textured inner pockets.
Besides the pain and trauma associated with Breast Cancer, the loss of femininity is the biggest psychological side-effect. Lumitact is an adhesive, tactile breast prosthesis that integrates Phillips' Lumalive material into its design. It tries to bring back the sense of self-confidence and sexiness into the woman's life.blind, cancer, Deaf, dentist, handicapped, hygiene, Medical, Ten
