Bringing dignity & independence to  those with sight loss.    

Did you know:

In the time it takes to watch or to make an average cup of tea ( 5 minutes ) 60 people around the world will have lost their sight.

Our Aim

Our aim is to provide a solution for the 39 million blind people around the world when they have to use publicly accessible disabled toilets.

 

Why it is important

Next time you're near a disabled toilet try this:

Before you open the door cover your eyes.

Now open the door, keep your eyes covered and find your way around...

Sounds silly until you try it but this is the reality for blind people unless they are escorted.

Some places have piloted putting braille instructions on the walls and doors to help but not only do less than 1% of blind people read Braille but would you really want to touch everywhere in a toilet?

The Room Mate

Our first product, The RoomMate, has been developed to provide an audio description that gives the listener a virtual map of their surroundings, in this case a disabled toilet so this is not just a tick box exercise but a product that can make a real difference.

With the last documented global estimate of blind people in the population, by WHO in 2010, being over 8.74% or 570 million people and set to double by 2050, anyone with a disabled access toilet could benefit from having a RoomMate.
