A Message From Barry Scheur
A smiling Barry Scheur is proud to announce his company's latest


GuideLights and Gadgets, Inc. is excited to offer two new accessible, high quality, and dependable products, which are accurate and easy to use talking non-contact infrared thermometers, and talking blood pressure meters, especially helpful for blind, visually impaired, and senior consumers!

GuideLights and Gadgets is a successful 8-year-old blind entrepreneur-owned company, dedicated to finding the most usable and affordable solutions to the unique needs that many special needs and senior populations experience every day.

The importance of these two new products has a personal significance for Barry Scheur, a retired blind attorney and health care executive, and co-founder of GuideLights. In 2005, his company "Talking Solutions" manufactured one of the earliest talking infrared thermometers, only to be blocked from entering the market with this needed product by a company that didn't want speech in a similar product they had previously patented.

"For the past fifteen years, I have purchased and tested every talking infrared thermometer that has come on the market, hoping that enough attention would have been paid to accuracy and ease of use, to support low vision, blind and all users in need of these devices in an easy-to-access and accurate device. Unfortunately, every model of these units had utilized infrared sensors that are of such low quality, that none of them could obtain the same body temperature reading three times in a row!'

"You may not have thought that independabtly monitoring your actual body temperature was that relevant or not have been overly distressed that the process has complicated or not independently accessible, until you needed to rely on a thermometer that is inaccurate when trying to determine whether you might be symptomatic for medical threats, such as COVID-19.'

"High quality talking medical devices have long been available to hospitals and DME (Durable Medical Equipment) suppliers, but they have not, until now, been commercially available to vision impaired and senior marketplaces. We are glad to finally be retail partnering with a company that understands the need for a product of this quality to be available to the general public, and has demonstrated its willingness and commitment to address this need."

Additionally, the thermometer has a larger display than most other competitors, making it easier for seniors, and those with vision loss to read it with greater ease.

Also available from GuideLights, is an upper arm talking blood pressure unit, which is very easy to use, affordable, and designed with a larger than average display. The BPM is a cuff-type unit that sells, as does the thermometer, for $50.

Both of these talking devices devices are easy to use, affordable and have large screens that are easy to read. Contact us for further information or to order your unit(s). Local orders may be picked up in Myrtle Beach, to save shipping costs.
