It is the combination of glasses and hearing aids.

It has four microphones on each side of the frame effectively work as two directional microphones, which are able to discern between sound coming from the front and sound coming from the sides or back of the user.

 

The merits of it: The user is able to wear both hearing aids and glasses at once.

                  It doesnt look like hearing aids in appearance.

                  And so on.

 

The demerits of it: The range of frame styles was limited.

                    It is weaker than other hearing aids.

                    And so on.

The new types was produced which employ bone conduction.

I think that the blind people life improves, if this device spreads to the world more.

 

9427‐Phone for handicapped person

2010 年 4 月 28 日 水曜日

Handicapped person can use the phone to breathe or move his finger slightly.

The phone has uneven dials,so people who can’t control his finger well can use it easily.

Because the dials are big and have enough distance from one to another,people who can’t use his hands use the phone by foot.

The body is designed heavily.So if someone kick it,it doesn’t move.

NTT apply welfare charge system to the phone.

Assistive technology

 

I would like to introduce this tool, named aural aid. This aural aid is made for detective hearing people. This tool gathers sounds by microphone, amplifies sounds by amplifier and is generated sounds by speaker. By doing so, they can hear sounds that they cannot hear.
