InventHelp Inventor Develops Improved Mobility Cane for the Visually Impaired (SDB-1170)

PITTSBURGH, March 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- "I have helped a blind person navigate the streets safely before," said an inventor from San Diego, Calif. "While I was lending a hand, I thought of ways to improve the design of the cane so that it would assist the user with reaching his or her destination safely."

He developed the SEEING EYE CANE to assist a visually impaired individual in getting around town. The cane keeps the user from bumping into objects, such as lampposts, trash cans, other people, etc. It enables the user to walk safely around obstacles and avoid danger. The invention helps the user live more independently and with less assistance from others. The cane includes several convenient features designed to make life easier. Additionally, the device features an emergency system to contact help in the event of an accident.

The original design was submitted to the San Diego office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
