We want to make the orientation and mobility of blind and visually impaired people as safe and intuitive as possible. Good orientation with the feelSpace naviBelt in traffic is one thing, but other great products can also improve the experience. So we decided to include other products in our range that promote our goal. That's why we now also offer the mobile reading device OrCam and the smart shoe InnoMake, which can recognize obstacles.
OrCam - The Mobile Reading Device
The OrCam MyEye 2 is a small, mobile camera for people who are blind or have low vision. It can read printed texts and recognize products and even faces, among other things.
All this is available with artificial intelligence and at any time. An internet connection is therefore not necessary, the OrCam works completely offline.
This innovative visual aid is equally suitable for children, adults and seniors. The device consists of a wireless mini-computer with an integrated camera. This camera fits almost any pair of glasses on the market and can read all printed texts - from books to menus, signs and digital content. The user only has to point to a text and the OrCam reads the corresponding text via an integrated mini loudspeaker or via Bluetooth headphones. Visit the OrCam website for more information.
If you are blind, health insurance will cover the cost of the OrCam. In order to apply for cost coverage, you need a corresponding prescription from your doctor with the aid number 07.99.04.6002,
which you send to us together with a signed privacy declaration. We will then take care of the rest for you.
A more detailed description of the application process, the data protection declaration and an information letter for you and the doctor with a sample prescription can be found in our application package.

InnoMake - The Shoe for Obstacle Detection
The InnoMake shoes were carefully developed by the Austrian startup Tec-Innovation GmbH to inform blind and visually impaired people about obstacles on the way. Everyday routes are now even safer!
The InnoMake sends and receives ultrasonic signals while walking and recognizes obstacles. It can communicate where an obstacle is by vibration in the shoe (or by audio output).
