Aluminium WCIB folding canes
The WCIB (from White Cane Instruments for the Blind) folding canes are made of heavy duty aluminium and fold into 4 sections. They have snug fitting joints that will not wobble or stick. Each cane is fitted with double elastic shock cords to secure it firmly while extended. All WCIB folding canes feature golf-type grips, flexible wrist loops, Scothlite coating and the standard red band at the base. Available sizes range from 34″ to 60″ in 2″ increments.
Mobility canes are available to Blind Foundation clients only. If you are not currently a Blind Foundation member and would like to purchase a mobility cane, please get in touch with us and find out about our free membership options. With membership, we can provide advice on which sort of cane is most suitable for your needs, and offer a specialised training programme on how to use a cane for safe independent travel. This programme covers all aspects of travel techniques, as well as tips for using the cane. Depending on the assessment outcome, a recommended cane may be supplied for free. Using the wrong cane, or the right cane in the wrong way, can lead to accidents and sometimes postural problems. To request a free assessment, training or advice, phone 0800 24 33 33. Alternatively, symbol and support canes are available for non members. You can find symbol and support canes here
