Accurately titled as the footwear of the future, Lechal is redefining the fitness and footwear industry. Founded in Hyderabad, India by Kristian Lawrence, Lechal is bringing the technology to the physically challenged segment of society. Designed specifically for the visually impaired segment of the society the technology helps them navigate the world with the help of haptic technology.
Since the GPS technology is of no use for visually impaired people, Lechal brings a new technology that helps visually impaired people in moving from one place to another. The product takes the help of GPS to track down your location which then delivers vibrations to your soles telling you where to turn and where to move. The app also keeps track of the route you are following and your fitness levels by keeping a count of the total steps you take.
