This innovative product is designed for disaster evacuation for the blind. It is equipped with various functions such as voice guidance, GPS tracking, whistle signals, and bright lighting so that users with visual restrictions can evacuate from disaster situations. This product is designed to respond quickly even in emergency situations by dividing buttons and whistle signals into braille. In particular, bright lighting helps rescuers identify the user's location even in dark environments, and speakers linked to GPS support the evacuation process by guiding real-time location information and safety routes. Filter replacement is easy, and the mask provides an anti-silicon mask for an effective fit, enabling efficient response in emergency situations. Mask straps are made of flame retardant materials to ensure the safety of users in disaster situations such as fires. This product will play an important role in protecting the lives of the blind and providing essential support in emergencies. The design of this innovative product exhibits exceptional creativity and functionality that provides practical help for the safety and survival of the blind. Through this product, we would like to contribute together to respond to disasters more safely and quickly.
