Get Around More Easily at the Beach and Park with the All Terrain Cane for the Blind


The All Terrain Cane was designed to help the blind navigate more safely and easily in areas that aren't paved. The long curved tip reduces snagging, allowing it to glide through sand, grass and other rough terrain. Now you'll be able to walk with confidence on the beach, on hiking paths or in the park!

How Do You Use It? Hold the cane out ahead of you with the curved nylon tip resting on the ground. As you walk, swivel your wrist from left to right, so that the tip moves along the ground in an S pattern, much like the movement of a snake. The curved tip should remain on the ground at all times.

The long nylon tip has a 3" curved piece at the top, a 6" straight middle section and a 3"curved end piece that prevents snagging. The cane features a golf style handgrip with a 3.5" diameter hook at top end. There is white reflective tape on the upper shaft and red reflective tape on the lower portion.

It's available in lengths of 38 to 58 inches, in even increments, in both rigid and folding models. Purchase an optional interchangeable Bulldog Rolling Cane Tip and give yourself the flexibility to convert your All Terrain Cane to a traditional cane for use on paved roads and sidewalks.
