The challenge

Cane with special handleThe client has recently lost her sight, but due to rheumatoid arthritis she cannot handle the conventional folding canes.

The client’s cane was given a larger grip fitted with a cam-shaped hinged plate. It was connected with a spring to lock it in line with the cane for extended reach. It can be turned at 45º or at right angles as the client requires.

The client quickly became accustomed to using the modified cane.
