Choosing the Right White Cane
From Second Sense:
There’s more than meets the eye when choosing a white cane. The material the cane is made from, its construction, length and tip all play a role in your safety and comfort when traveling. How fast you walk, the terrain you usually travel and your height are also factors a trained, certified orientation and mobility specialist can assess to help you choose the cane that’s right for you. On Tuesday, June 22 at 1:00 pm, Eleni Gaves, COMS, will share what to look for when choosing a white cane and answer your questions about mobility training.
