  • The Problem

    Our disability makes it impossible to see in front of you, but doesn't disrupt peripheral vision. This means you can see left, right, and down, but not up for straight. Sound is also muted and your own voice echoes more than normal. This is odd as usually the loss of one sense will heighten another, but two senses are being dampened. 

    The Solution

    We created a mirror system of a large mirror that hangs and rests on the chest of the person. Then a second mirror that is Velcroed to the back of the main mirror and attached with a tether goes into the users hand. Then simply manipulating the mirror allows the individual to see what's in front of them.
