ABOUT US

Stria is a student run start-up devoted to creating a technological ecosystem for blind individuals, harnessing both the power of design engineering and the technology in our laptops and phones. Our current flagship product, the Stria band, is a low-profile smart-waistband designed to ensure that the visually impaired remain safe from collisions with high-speed traffic.

User-Focused

The user is, and always has been, at the heart of Stria’s design focus. Over the past four years, we have spoken to 200+ visually impaired individuals, and dozens of blind centers and trainers nationwide to get a true understanding of blindness today. Stria has also established strong relationships with blind centers across the Bay Area and worked with designers at leading technology companies to continue developing our products.

Reliability

Stria is dedicated to building products that last — that’s why every product will be rigorously tested in-house and built with quality materials only. Stria is currently seeking out WCAG AAA certification for our flagship product, the Stria band, and are actively ensuring our various electronic parts are reputably sourced and built.
