With the Pebble, we're giving people the confidence to do everyday activities again with a single, simple device
Huntington Beach, Calif. (PRWEB) April 10, 2009
Enhanced Vision, America's leading manufacturer of magnifying solutions for the visually impaired, launched a powerful new hand-held device today that can bring affordable independence to the 15 Million+ Americans suffering from low vision conditions such as macular degeneration. At just $595 and no larger than a men's wallet, "Pebble" is an exciting new vision device that gives users the freedom to read menus, check price tags, write checks, and much more while on the go.
The Pebble features:
- Bright, 3.5" high resolution LCD display that magnifies words and objects from 2-10X the normal size
- Choice of six video viewing modes for optimal contrast
- "Freeze image" feature with additional magnification capabilities
- Hands-free mode for reading and writing
- Built-in LED light source for dim lighting conditions(e.g. restaurants)
- 2 AA rechargeable batteries, wall adapter and carrying case
Currently, more than 15 million people in the United States are diagnosed with low vision conditions, such as Macular Degeneration which makes everyday activities like reading, writing, and ordering at restaurants a real challenge. And with America's aging population, this number is expected to double by 2020. Leading eye care specialists have discovered that video magnification is a solution for these individuals to regain and maintain their independence.
"With the Pebble, we're giving people the confidence to do everyday activities again with a single, simple device," said Michelle Williams, Director of Marketing at Enhanced Vision. "Instead of carrying around multiple magnifiers, Pebble adapts to a wide range of situations, so it grows as a user's condition changes. And at a price that's hundreds of dollars less than competing products, it's the ideal solution at this challenging time."
