UltraCane is a primary electronic mobility aid for use by people who are blind or visually impaired; it is a major "step forward" in assistive technology that allows safe obstacle avoidance and permits navigation around obstacles both in the user's forward path and just as importantly, giving valuable protection at head/chest height.  

Incorporating state-of-the-art "narrow beam technology", the UltraCane detects street furniture and other obstacles within 2 or 4 metres (depending on which setting is used) and it does this by emitting ultrasonic waves from two sensors. It also detects up to 1.5 metres ahead at chest/head height, giving tactile feedback to the user through two vibrating buttons on the handle over which the user places their thumb.  For more information, please visit our website.
