Visually impaired women experience a higher level of stress during menstruation, often exacerbated by the common societal perception that they are 'uninvolved in reproduction' and cannot be sexual beings. Warm Touch helps to make the experience of menstruation less stressful for them. The near-infrared rays help blind women detect moisture on a sanitary pad so that they can easily know when it need to be changed.
The project “Warm Touch” offers support to visually impaired women during their periods. This project is at the intersection of two highly overlooked issues: the difficulties that blind people face in their daily lives and the issue of feminine hygiene. It offers a better user experience to millions of people by helping them during their periods while respecting their privacy with a product that they can use alone.WINNER STATEMENT
