Who We Are? 

WeWALK was born from our lived experiences of visual impairment, our desire to feel safe and independent in our everyday lives, and our vision of ensuring that every visually impaired person has the freedom to go wherever they want to go.  

Our experience in developing visually impaired technology spans over 10 years, from audio description in movie theaters to an award-winning indoor navigation system reaching hundreds of thousands of users. Now, we have reimagined the white cane with modern technology to create the revolutionary WeWALK smart cane. 

 

Where Is Your Money Going? 

Every dollar raised on our platform will go directly towards the purchase of WeWALK Smart Canes for deserving individuals across the visually impaired community.

What is WeWALK Smart Cane?

 Named as TIME Magazine's Best Inventions of 2019 and honoured to be selected as the Startup of the Year by Amazon in 2021. WeWALK is a novel mobility system for visually impaired people comprising a smartphone app and companion smart cane, allowing them full and equal participation in everyday life. WeWALK’s fit on top of the white cane and adds Bluetooth connectivity to the WeWALK app. Using WeWALK's inbuilt sensors, touchpad, speaker and microphone, users benefit from above-ground obstacle detection, seamless outdoor navigation and exploration, and hands-free control of their mobile device, straight from their cane. 

Standalone, the WeWALK app remains the most versatile navigation and exploration app for visually impaired people, delivering the world’s first multi-modal navigation system with uncompromised accessibility. 

Multi-modal navigation provides visually impaired individuals to reach his/her location with transportation options and gives him/her information about different transportation options near them whether that’s a bus line, a subway, or a metro line. This feature also gives his/her directions to those stops and information about the schedules. Thanks to this feature, visually impaired individuals can easily get to their destinations by directly enter where they want to go. 

 

Why Give? 

There are 253 million visually impaired people in our world today and we want every individual to experience the ultimate mobility. Together, we can truly empower the independence of countless people living with visual impairments.
