Final Year Project

An interactive blue-light therapy alarm device to improve the sleeping patterns of visually impaired people

One of the key problems that visually impaired people face is regulating their sleep patterns to be able to keep to a 24-hour schedule. The alarm clock device incorporates timed blue-light therapy to stimulate users in the morning in combination with a unique non-sighted tactile interaction to prevent unnecessary external light stimulation during the night.
