Can you imagine being pregnant, and not being the first to know? This is the situation currently facing blind and partially sighted women, who rely on help to interpret the result of pregnancy tests.
That could be set to change, thanks to a fully accessible pregnancy test prototype. If produced, it would enable women with sight loss to know their result privately for the first time.
The test allows the result to be felt, using a large tactile area with raised bumps to indicate a pregnancy.
The prototype is part of the RNIB’s Design for Everyone campaign, which aims to inspire businesses and designers to prioritise accessibility when creating products and services.
