CES 2022 is showcasing many new adaptive products and technologies, but they’re not just for the aging or severely disabled. Folks with invisible disabilities like dyslexia are getting some love, too, thanks to a special lamp named Lili.
Dyslexia affects about one in five people, and though it is not indicative of one’s intelligence level, the struggle to read can affect the ability to progress in school and a career. While it is a lifelong condition, certain accommodations and interventions can help make reading easier.
People with dyslexia have two dominant eyes, which means their brains try to process two overlaid images. This can cause readers to see a mirror effect on the page, making it difficult to decipher letters and words. The Lili Lamp works to combat this by producing “imperceptible lights and flashes” that negate that mirror effect. According to a study conducted by Lili last year, nearly 80% one of the lamp’s users reported improvements in reading and comprehension.
Lili’s app allows users to adjust the settings to find the optimal lighting for their unique needs, and the company is offering free customer support for getting everything set up just right.
Not only is it effective and adjustable, it travels well. The lamp folds up and comes with a carrying case that is small enough to be stored in a handbag.
The Lili lamp is now shipping worldwide at LiliForLife.com and costs €349 (approx. $395).
