On November 3rd Povidi NZ LTD announced the availability of the SoundPost Orientation System for customers who live in North America.
SoundPost is the first orientation solution of its kind offering vision impaired customers an unparalleled means of safely identifying a desired location while traveling throughout their community. SoundPost consists of a hand controller that the user holds to locate strategically placed base stations which can be mounted to doorways, light posts, ambiguous bus stops, etc.
As the user travels within the vicinity of a base station, the hand controller emits either a vibration, a tone, or a spoken word to orient the user to the base station. The end result is that SoundPost completes the solutions that other orientation and mobility devices do not by actually enabling the user to effortlessly find desired locations in real time.
Check out this video which shows SoundPost in action:
Povidi has partnered with Flying Blind, LLC to provide access to this solution throughout North America. Povidi's founder, Darryl Sherwood, and Flying Blind, LLC's founder, Larry Lewis, have a rich history of bringing innovative solutions to market, as evidenced by within their past collaborations at Pulse Data International.
"We're ecstatic to be bringing such a life-changing, affordable solution to the North American continent," comments Sherwood. "SoundPost will enable tens of thousands of individuals who are vision impaired to independently locate those hard to find places throughout their neighborhoods at a price point far less than one might expect."
"I am both humbled and privileged that Darryl asked for my assistance with SoundPost," states Lewis. "Darryl has a real passion for creating solutions that make a tangible difference to those of us who are blind."
Povidi is currently working to introduce SoundPost into a number of educational and corporate settings, in addition to meeting the needs of those individuals that might wish to integrate this solution into their own neighborhoods. The SoundPost Orientation Base Station and Hand controller run on off-the-shelf batteries, and the batteries on the base station only require changing every nine months.
