The naviBelt in Orientation and Mobility Training
Provide Noticeably Better Orientation and Security
As a rehabilitation teacher for orientation and mobility, the naviBelt offers you many new options in training people with visual impairments: it helps to significantly improve orientation, mobility and safety for blind people. Problem areas such as open spaces, unnoticed changes of direction and crossing wide streets become noticeably safer with the naviBelt.
We make sure that your training participants can already try out the naviBelt in basic orientation and mobility lessons and thus make fast and effective learning progress. Simply use our well-founded learning material, which we have developed in cooperation with rehabilitation teachers and institutions for the blind in Germany. It includes, for example, a special app and a training plan for teaching visually impaired people.
Indications for Using a naviBelt
Not every visually impaired person has the same orientation skills. Above all, the feelSpace naviBelt brings a significant improvement in orientation for people who can no longer determine their position in space through their eyesight. This is first noticeable on large squares because there are no nearby landmarks for orientation.
In general, it is assumed that a visual acuity value of less than 0.05 or a visual field restriction of less than 10 degrees means that orientation in road traffic can no longer be maintained with visual acuity alone. In this case at the latest, the use of a naviBelt is recommended.
For follow-up training in orientation and mobility, typical indications for using a naviBelt are:
- Difficulty finding your way around in open spaces such as market squares, schoolyards or parking lots
- Improper alignment when crossing roads
- Unnoticed turns that result in loss of orientation
- Safety-relevant orientation errors that lead to increased accident risks in road traffic
