Jean Creations is proud to introduce the new and improved Match
Makers, a tactual marking system for visually impaired (color blind,
low vision, and blind) to match and identify items such as clothing,
towels, linens, and products such as food items (canned, boxed,
frozen), spices, medication, and make-up (lipstick, nail polish,
etc). Match Makers are easy to use and can be attached under a shirt
collar, on a shirttail or wherever they are most convenient.
DRESSING IS THE SECOND MOST DIFFICULT DAILY TASK FOR THE VISUALLY
IMPAIRED. Match Makers solves this problem therefore making
life easier. Attaching Match Makers to apparel, the visually impaired
can choose their own daily wardrobe instead of relying on others.
Match Makers also provides the opportunity to expand ones' wardrobe
Makers consist of a plastic cover with large raised dots. The
cover is attached to a brass nickel-plated safety pin. The heights
of the raised dots allow easy and quick recognition of each pattern,
even for Diabetics with a loss of feeling in the fingertips. Braille
reading capability is not required to use Match Makers.
The design of Match Makers is unique in that they are small and
they will stay attached during laundering. There are 17 dot patterns,
which can make hundreds of combinations and covers can be modified
to create a specific dot pattern.
The new Match Makers can be used in two pattern combinations:
1.) Match by number of dots, 2.) Match by assigning a color to
each dot pattern.
Matching by number of dots. Use a 1 dot Match Makers to
identify matching wardrobe items, such as trousers and skirts
with shirts and blouses. Identify shirts and blouses that can
be worn with more than one pair of trousers or skirt by attaching
two Match Makers.
Assigning a color. Dots can represent a color. For example:
A Match Makers with 1 dot on the coiled end of the safety pin
can be assigned the color white. A Match Makers with 1 dot on
the opposite side of the coiled end of the safety pin can be assigned
the color black.
To identify products such as spices, canned, boxed, frozen items,
shampoos and medications, attach Match Makers to a rubber band.
Example: A Match Makers with 1 dot identifies canned corn. Match
Makers with 2 dots identifies canned peas.
For safety, Match Makers can be used to distinguish cleaning products
from insect sprays.
The magic of Match Makers is a system that can be personalized
to the needs of the individual. Match Makers are easy for all
ages and give independence, confidence, and self-reliance for
the visually impaired.
