This quote by Helen Keller captures the spirit of independence and self-sufficiency. It also captures the spirit of a new tactile system called Visus Touch. Through touch, Visus Touch helps persons without sight to maintain their independence at home.
Pantries, refrigerators, freezers, bathrooms, medicine cabinets, bathrooms and the like often contain items that are similar in shape, size, and color – but may contain vastly different contents.
For persons without sight, identifying the desired item in such situations can be frustrating and oftentimes disheartening. Where medicines are involved, choosing the wrong medicine may pose considerable risk.
The system is easily learned through an entertaining audio tutoring instruction manual. For this purpose a USB flash drive is provided with the kit. The listener is guided to tactile expertise by performing exercises on a Visus Touch™ Tactile Training Card which is also provided. For persons who are fully or partially sighted, the kit also comes with an instruction manual in booklet form.
As a completely tactile system, Visus Touch™ is effective for children, adults and seniors of all cultures. It is adaptable by design and can be incorporated into the lifestyles of most individuals.
Professionals such as blind and low vision counselors, vocational rehabilitation counselors, blind and low vision teachers, occupational therapists, and home health care specialists will find VISUS TOUCH™ a valuable aid for their consumers, clients, or customers.
