World first: the pregnancy test for women with sight loss – Positive News
Can you imagine being pregnant and not being the first to know? This is the situation currently faced by blind and visually impaired women, who depend on help to interpret the results of pregnancy tests.
That could change thanks to a fully accessible pregnancy test prototype. If it occurs, it would allow women with vision loss to know their result privately for the first time.
The test allows you to feel the result, using a large tactile area with raised bumps to indicate pregnancy.
The prototype is part of the RNIB Design for Everyone Campaign, which aims to inspire companies and designers to prioritize accessibility when creating products and services.
