Aira Navigation Services for Visually Impaired

Navigation for visually impaired

Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset is the first hospital in the nation to offer Aira navigation services for blind and low-vision patients and visitors. Aira is an app-based service that connects individuals with sight loss with highly-trained, remotely located agents who can guide them throughout the hospital and assist with other tasks where visual information can be useful. Through the camera on a smart phone, Aira agents can see the individual’s surroundings and direct them step by step to their destination. The service is available free of charge courtesy of Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset when users are on the hospital’s campus.
