A new solution to low visibility?
With the public apparently becoming “desensitised” to the benefits of high visibility clothing, the Glow Belt is being put forward as a “quick and simple solution to low visibility”.
The Glow Belt comprises a chain of flashing LEDs that wrap around the wearer in various configurations in order to provide “a clearer view of the person to those around them”.
BMC Innovations, the company behind Glow Belt, says it is currently at the working prototype stage, and “about to be taken to the next level of development”.
Ryan Ward, from BMC Innovations, said: “In a market dominated by vests, jackets and various lighting systems, something unobtrusive, cheap and effective is required.
“Glow Belt is a practical, effective and inexpensive solution to personal safety and visibility.
“Whether out jogging, working in dangerous conditions or simply popping down to the shops, being visible to those around you is of the highest importance.
“The children at a road crossing, the cyclist on the country road, the jogger just trying to keep fit; with a myriad of applications, long battery life and durability, Glow Belt is the next step in affordable, reliable safety wear.
“Glow Belt offers a quick and simple solution to low visibility. No matter the environment, the wearer or the circumstances, Glow Belt offers affordable, reliable visibility.”
