Most of us rely on our trusted alarm clocks to wake us up every morning to go to our schools and offices on time. How would a deaf or a hearing impaired person be able to get the same advantages of the alarm clock if he would not be able to hear the alarm? With this device though, people with hearing impairment can wake up every morning and get to their daily activities on time just like an average person.
This is the Soft Touch Deaf Alerter, an alarm clock unlike any other alarm clocks out there, by Stuart Winkless. It comes with a soft inflatable wrist band that the deaf wears on his wrist every time he sleeps. Now, instead of giving off a wake-up alarm sound, it gently squeezes the wrist of the deaf person, telling him that it is time to wake up.
This device can also be used to alert the deaf of other alarms like a phone call, or fire alarms that he may also want to be alerted on.
