The Aqualert II: An End-of-Lane Signaling Device for Swimmers Who Are Visually Impaired.
Scheib, Katherine M.; Ponchillia, Paul E.
RE:view, v31 n1 p32-39 Spr 1999
Four athletes who are blind tested the effectiveness of an end-of-the-lane signaling device for swimmers with visual impairments. Swimmers preferred the Aqualert II over the tap stick because it gave them a better idea of the location of the wall, more advanced warning, and allowed them to be more independent. (CR)
