Due to unprecedented Carona Virus (COVID-19) situation, one of the gadgets that one should have is an OxiMeter to track oxygen levels. Are those OxiMeters available in the market accessible to people with vision impairment? Not really, then how would they be able to monitor their oxygen levels independently?
Good news! Saketek Foundation has just launched Talking Pulse OxiMeter available at INR 2,800/-. By the way, SakTek, a few months back launched their market place to deliver assistive technologies to dorr step of people with disabilities (mostly for people with vision impairment though).
