Free-Standing Canes.
Ehresman, Paul
RE:view, v27 n1 p15-23 Spr 1995
A precane device, called the "free-standing cane," was developed to help children with blindness along with other disabilities. The cane detects obstacles; guides the user's hands into a relaxed, static position in front of the hips; facilitates postural security and control; and offers tactile and kinesthetic feedback. (JDD)
