Shoe for Visually Impaired
‘LeChal’ is a Haptic feedback-based navigation device, embedded in footwear. It is a pair of Haptic shoes that receive signals from a GPS-enabled smartphone, allowing the visually impaired to walk independently, giving them directions and alerting them of obstacles - a perfect companion to the white cane, overcoming its drawbacks.

The aim was to design a product for people with special needs that is intuitive and easy to use. It involved research, studying user behaviour, day-to-day activities, needs, problems, approach and interaction with products.

There are several mobility aids for the blind in the market that use GPS and Haptic feedback. Guiding through footwear is a more intuitive way to assist navigation. Footwear is an essential part of attire; so one does not require additional gadgets. It can complement the cane. The real challenge was in understanding user requirements. The aesthetics vary drastically when it comes to the visually impaired.
