Product Description

Orientation and Mobility is difficult for a person living with blindness or partial sight. A major pain point that needs to be addressed is detecting obstacles above the waist, particularly at head level. This problem is further exacerbated in developing countries due to a lack of accessible infrastructure and a lack of social assistance. In addition, this core issue of limited mobility often extends into further difficulties for the blind and partially sighted such as unemployment, social isolation and depression.
To address the aforementioned concerns, iMerciv has developed the BuzzClip, a small and discreet wearable for people that are blind or partially sighted. The device uses ultrasound to detect obstacles that may lie directly in one's path. It then notifies the user of these obstacles through intuitive vibrations, allowing the user to safely navigate around any objects that they may encounter. It offers essential head level obstacle detection and can be easily attached to many forms of clothing, making it a highly versatile and useful device. 

The BuzzClip is a complementary product to the cane and can also be used on its own for those with partial sight looking for a subtle solution. Its versatility allows users to creatively use the device for their specific vision needs.

The BuzzClip is an extremely practical and easy to use mobility tool for the blind. A major paint point it solves is the issue of detecting obstacles above the waist, particularly at the head level. Many of these obstacles are often missed by aids like canes or guide dogs. Currently there are a few hand held solutions on the market however they do not properly address the issue due to complexity of use and high price points. The BuzzClip has a significant competitive advantage over the majority of products currently available in this market through its essential functionality, versatility and affordability while also offering sleek style and discretion.

About Imerciv Technologies Pvt. Ltd.

iMerciv caters to the orientation & mobility needs of blind, deaf-blind and visually impaired communities around the globe. We strive to empower people living with vision loss through new wearable assistive technology. iMerciv is based in Toronto, Canada and was founded in August of 2014 in order to change the game for those living with vision loss all over the world.


Vision and Mission of the Organization

Vision Loss is an important and growing issue to iMerciv co-founders, Arjun Mali and Bin Liu. Bin's father is currently living with inoperable glaucoma and we want to provide him with a functional and effective solution for when he loses more vision in the future. Arjun’s family has supported a blind school and orphanage in India for decades. The images above and below show blind students from the ‘Janta Adarsh Andh Vidyalaya’ orphanage in New Delhi.
This was where most of the early testing occurred for the first BuzzClip and we intend to supply this often overlooked and neglected population with an affordable mobility tool that can drastically change their overall quality of life.
