AbstractA German inventor has developed an innovative system to improve the readability of small labels on packages and bins. He offers a external and discrete solution in which a magnification of the font can be done whenever necessary. This can be achieved through a covering over the font that can be streched via water or air. Therefore the font will appear bigger and will be easier to read. The inventor is looking for licence agreement and technical co-operation.
DetailsTo help people with natural or age-related visual impairments, a German inventor offers a innovative external system to improve the readability of small labels on packages.
On sites with very small and therefore difficult to read fonts, the package will be furnished with an elastic coating. This should be like a second skin on the appropriate sites.
Through a stretching of the covering the underlying and difficult to read Scripture will extend and enlarge. Thus it will be easily recognizable. The strain will be achieved by incoming water or air.
A practical example is the use in the shower: most people do not wear their glasses and a mix-up between different products is possible. Some people for example brush their teeth in the shower and to mix-up the shaving foam with the toothpaste could cause unpleasant surprises. And even allergic reactions to certain ingredients are possible, if the person grabs the wrong shower lotion.
By equiping the packaging of personal care products with the afore mentioned coating, confusions can be excluded and ingredients could be clearly recongnizable.
The advantage of this system is that it can be used for closed packages as well for products already open.
It is a very discrete solution and will improve the safety for people with visual impairments.
