Currently physical inactivity in the visually impaired community is all too common, with a major cause being the increasing inaccessibility of fitness equipment currently available in gyms and health clubs across the country. Versal looks at how modern fitness equipment can be rethought to increase usability for visually impaired users through designing a treadmill console that leverages the benefits of improved audio output and tactile interaction.
Simplified analogue controls allow the users to easily adjust the workout to their preferences, while also providing Bluetooth compatible audio description that aids users in navigating through the digital interface while also updating them with real-time fitness metrics. Along with this the digital interface can be adapted to increase visibility and users can access previous workout data through pairing their phone with the treadmill through the app.
