Equarun

Assistive device

Equarun is used to help deafblind people (especially those suffering from Usher Syndrome, a progressive disorder affecting more than 400,000 people worldwide) and their guides engage in safe and comfortable long-distance running. This device is capable of transmitting complex instructions on road conditions, striking a good balance between freedom and safety.

JURY STATEMENT

This is an idea that gives visually impaired people the chance to enjoy the freedom to run in busy traffic conditions alongside non-disabled people. The form creates meaningful visual symbolism of a 'connecting link' between the non-disabled and disabled runners.

WINNER STATEMENT

Go, Runnerdam! Go, Runningblind!
