The dbGLOVE is a wearable designed for individuals who are deaf-blind to communicate. Using the Malossi alphabet (an intuitive tactile alphabet invented by an Italian deafblind), two deaf-blind people can communicate by typing on each others' hand in turns. The users will touch different areas of the palm, each corresponding to a letter. The Malossi alphabet is extremely intuitive, and it relies on basic touch cues. Letters are located in a clockwise order over the phalanxes. Letters from A to O are pressed, and letters from P to Z are pinched. The alphabet is widely employed with children and people having cognitive impairments, who cannot learn more complex communication methods (e.g., the Lorm or Braille alphabets).
