Sound Typhlosolis / Typhlosolis

Sound Typhlosolis
Sound Typhlosolis

While the blind walk down the street they need to rely on the typhlosole. The Sound Typhlosole optimizes the traditional blind typhlosole. The blind can discern the direction by identifying the sound. The Sound Typhlosole is laid in some special places, such as the edge of the sidewalk blind end, crossroads etc. Because the Sound Typhlosole is hollow, it will make a sound when a blind person hits the ground with a stick. Such a sound can prompt the blind to notice the obstacles, which ensure the safety of the blind.
