Stria is a student run start-up devoted to helping face the challenges of visual impairment. Straying from straight paths is one of the largest dangers of visual impairment, especially at crosswalks and sidewalks. Stria’s mission is to empower and improve the lives of blind and visually impaired individuals in Northern California and beyond by harnessing the power of design engineering.
