Guiding - the naviBelt®
Find your own way independently: The vibrating naviBelt from feelSpace gives blind and visually impaired people a new sense of space by making paths and directions perceptible with vibrations around the stomach. 16 equally distributed vibration units cover 360°. Simply put on the naviBelt, feel where north is or enter a destination with your smartphone and start feeling your directions immediately. The handling is completely barrier-free and was specially developed for blind and visually impaired people to make it easier for you to find your way around.
Developed as a research project, the naviBelt quickly showed what help it can be in everyday life, especially for the blind and visually impaired. It has been further refined into the high quality navigation solution it is today. The naviBelt improves orientation, lowers the required attention and relieves the ears.
The naviBelt is optimally supplemented by a white cane and the OrCam. You can also find the small reading camera in our offer .
“The naviBelt gave me back a bit of freedom. In the beginning it felt a bit unfamiliar. But it quickly becomes a routine and, especially together with the white cane, it gives me a great deal of security. The impulses that the vibration elements send out can be felt well and are pleasant. In addition, there are no spatial gaps due to the number (16 pieces). They cover 360°. I feel very well guided. Of course, that allows me to be much more mobile than before."
Independence and Security
"Outdoors, there are almost no dangerous situations for me anymore. I feel safe with the naviBelt. My orientation has clearly improved, and I developed a sense of direction. The belt and app are really easy and barrier-free to use, without outside help. Feeling the impulses is incidental and I can devote my attention to other things. The naviBelt is simply a giant step towards independence."
Congenitally blind naviBelt user
“And suddenly the world gets bigger again!
Everyone who got blind later on in life knows the terrible feeling of complete disorientation - "Where exactly am I standing right now?"
On my first test walk with the feelSpace naviBelt, I spun in circles on a road with growing enthusiasm because I always knew exactly where my house was. That awakened my adventurous spirit - I dared to reconquer previously known destinations all by myself, and later to explore new paths and places.
The operation of the belt and the app are barrier-free and easy to use. The street crossing setting is very helpful. It helps me to avoid running into intersections again, I feel the direction in my stomach and can concentrate on my other senses better.
I enjoy the feeling of freedom and independence when, before leaving the house, I can happily call out: "Bye - see you tonight!"

This is how the naviBelt helps in everyday life
The naviBelt makes it easy for you: it is ready for use in just a few simple steps and is therefore also ideal for spontaneous excursions. You can control the naviBelt with your smartphone. Select the feelSpace app and enter your desired goal. Connect the smartphone to your naviBelt via Bluetooth, put the smartphone back in your pocket - and off you go. The naviBelt indicates the direction via vibrations on your stomach. If the belt vibrates in front, go straight ahead. If the signal wanders, simply follow it in the indicated direction. Without using the app, the naviBelt works as a tactile compass and lets you feel where north is. What does this help with?
With the naviBelt, you can judge curves and changes of direction better and avoid unintentional turns. You can cross streets and places in a straight line. After avoiding an obstacle, you can immediately align yourself back along the road and continue straight ahead.
Wonderfully light and carefree: you will hardly notice the weight of the naviBelt.
Simple and barrier-free use
The easiest task even without prior technical knowledge: The naviBelt and the app are very intuitive to use.
Sufficient energy for long trips: The battery life is at least 8 hours!
