Its long battery life is ensuring that we don’t have to recharge it frequently and can use it daily. It’s visually impaired friendly design and features have made it a part of our life.
Walking around in the campus is easier with our Saarthi. The vibrations help us know of obstacles in advance and we can avoid collisions because of this. It makes me less prone to injury and I can walk freely in the campus without fear.
Using Saarthi has provided me with a lot of confidence to move around freely with independence. Not being dependent on people all the time for small things is a great feeling of independence and happiness. Its simplicity makes it easy to use the device and its accuracy of obstacle detection makes it very reliable.
"Helpful and reliable."
I have been one of the early adopters for Saarthi and have been using it for the last 8 - 10 months almost regularly. What I find really useful in Saarthi is how easily it can be learned to use it and I would say I have found a wonderful and reliable friend in Saarthi where I can just get up and my Saarthi guides my way.
"Great battery life."
Saarthi has been really useful as it has different modes that accommodate to the surroundings as I am walking in different setups. I use the indoors mode to walk inside my room and in my lobby and use the outdoors mode when I have to walk on the streets. It is very useful!
I use Saarthi almost 3-4 hours a day while walking in the park or going to the institution, it has changed my life immensely as I used to stay indoors all the time but now I explore the world without fear.
The device offers 99.7% accuracy in obstacle detection and navigation support so that the blind users can easily and comfortably use it in any setup without fear of bumping into obstacles and facing severe injuries.
Most people witness blindness in the later part of their lives and TorchIt had designed its devices to be simplistic and as effective as possible for them. Our core design is based on the feedback received from real end-users to make it 'for the Blind - to the Blind'.
The device provides real-time support in cases of external support sought, they can just make an audio or video call to take support from any person across the entire world. SOS button for emergency support
The device has been ergonomically designed integrating for the best Battery Life to ease for Use.
TorchIt works with many NGOs and CSOs for designing and developing Assistive technology appropriate to the needs of the blind community. Assistive devices designed by TorchIt are used by persons with blindness and helps improving their quality of life in terms of mobility. Assistive technology solutions can range from simple to complex, but with the inputs and insights shared by NGOs and CSOs it has truly helped in enhancing and releasing the final product.
Corporate charity and Corporate Social Responsibility funds help assistive device makers like TorchIt to realize their concepts into a tangible product and can be channelized either directly or through local government bodies under relevant programmes to help develop assistive technologies and enhance current devices. To develop a concept, create a prototype in a lab and then take it to the market, requires a lot of testing and verification to be done, and the entire cycle requires a substantial amount of resources and funding. To sustain such projects CSR funding goes a long way to help the team at TorchIt in partnering with Corporates and Government bodies to in turn help the blind community.
Who doesn’t love receiving a gift! And a gift that is well-thought-out and truly helps a visually impaired person to be more self reliant amd also assist with easy mobility is nothing less than a blessing. We encourage people to gift these devices to persons with blindness because it gives the person receiving it an assurance that they are cared for. Remember – the best gifts are those that make someone’s life better or easier. We recommend people to contact our team first before selecting a device for gifting.
