"Ear mark" (photo: green) shows hearing disability, promoted by the National League of Hard of Hearing and Deafened in order to spread recognition about hearing impairment in the public aiming at comfortable social realization.
The "Ear mark" has been allowed by the League on October 11, 2016 to be used on an automated external defibrillator (AED) sold by the Japan Lifeline Corporation (headquarters: Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo) as it was designed to fit the needs of a person with hearing impairment. (photo)
When using AED, any person with hearing impairment can follow certainly by the pictures shown on the body of the device, a lamp flash and a use procedure manual.
