This device allows blind persons to scan their surroundings for
obstacles or orientation marks.
Why is it important?
Besides providing orientation, the white cane gives blind person the
ability to achieve a full and independent life.
This date reminds us that persons with visual impairment have
the same rights to move freely as other people.
Therefore, if you see a person with a white cane,
before assuming he/she needs help, first ask, and,
in case the help is required, ask how best to do it.
