We are lucky that robots are not taking over us. Well, apart from such a terminal probability of robots taking over human technology is all good; they continue to make our life better. And when it comes to tech help for disabled or sick people, we are seeing groundbreaking innovations coming up.
How many of our older people at home have been saved from a dreadful crisis thanks to the distress call sent from a sensor-enabled device? For god’s sake, not many of us have experienced such situation but we always find such gadgets and apps helpful. If you are visually impaired and living in the US, chances are very less that you have not heard of brail-computer or brail-enabled phone. So technology is now the benevolence personified for disabled, sick and distressed people.
The 5 awesome technologies mentioned below only prove the point!
1) This Anti-tremor Spoon For Parkinson’s Disease
Many of us have seen elderly people struggling to hold a spoon with their fingers because of an incessant tremor caused by Parkinson’s disease. We always silently sighed seeing such helpless conditions. The end to such horrible condition has arrived thanks to Liftware Base Stabilizer spoon. Dubbed as the anti-tremor spoon, this will allow such people easily feed themselves irrespective of the tremor.
2) Kenguru Electric Car
At childhood, whenever we used to go out for a family picnic in our old Audi, grandpa in his wheelchair looking wayward used to have a somber expression. That is a tragic irony of life for the loved people around us who cannot move like us. Thanks to Kenguru, a special car made for disabled people in their wheelchair to drive, we are going to see an end to this painful irony. This electric car that can be driven by people in their wheelchairs is a surprise innovation to make life easier and happier for the disabled. I miss my wheelchair ridden grandpa more than ever now, really!
3) Robotic Teddy Bear To Amuse Sick Kids
Children are one big source of our joyful mood. Naturally, nothing pains us more than seeing them sick. Wouldn’t you find it great if you can allow your sick bedridden child have a good time with a high-tech puppet? Obviously, you would and that is precisely why Huggable the new remote controlled teddy bear has been developed. It is soon going to be more equipped to respond to changing situations and a variety of emotional scenarios to let the sick little ones feel happier.
4) Enchroma Lenses For The Color Blind
Enchroma lenses look like sunglasses but instead of offering only toned down visuals of surroundings it helps color blinds to see all colors, as distinctly and delicately as we see. By allowing more absorption of lights it allows clear visibility of all hues.
5) Smart Belt To Prevent Epileptic Seizure
This smart belt created by some students at Rice University can actually monitor the onset syndromes of an epileptic seizure and send distress signals to caregivers via Bluetooth signal on a smartphone or computer. Rightly named SMART (Seizure Monitoring and Response Transducer) can really make a difference in allowing timely help for epileptic fits.
