White Cane Guide
White Cane Guide

Orientation and Mobility(O&M) is one of the most necessary skills to all the blind. The early intervention will effectively reduce the difficulties from later daily learning.
However, the training of traditional walking cane is not quite suitable to the blind little young kids whose cognitive capacities are still insufficient. In order to avoid to force the blind kids to learn a new set of rules when they are come to some certain ages, White Cane Guide is a brand new pre-cane walking toy for the blind little young kids, to contain independent exploration and to stimulate movement development.
