The SHE pregnancy and ovulation test for blind women including menstruation indicator
Design by Nikoleta Čeligová
School: Academy of Fine Arts
Teacher: Ferdinand Chrenka

The SHE pregnancy and ovulation test for blind women represents an exemplarily sensitive solution to a very intimate lady issue. This is a tactilely pleasant trigonal object which may be put in a handbag. Its blind owner then receives some important information – it works as a simple pregnancy and  ovulation test (without assistance of a sighted person) as well as an indicator of arrival and end of menstruation. It also serves as indicator of colors which is a feature highly appreciated by the blind. The appliance communicates with the owner using audio sounds. It is hermetically closed, easily washable and completely hygienic. It contributes to the self-confidence, dignity and independence of the blind women even in the most intimate human areas.

There is no similarly sophisticated multifunctional product in any economically developed country which offer the blind the latest material and technological novelties to improve their life comfort.
