Independent - triple safety with cane for the blind - laser and ultrasound

The Independent is probably the smallest and lightest device equipped with an ultrasonic and laser sensor. It can be attached to clothing with its clamp to detect obstacles in the upper body and head area. The hazard is signalled with acoustic signals. With the adapter for the stick, the Independent can also be fixed there to warn you of obstacles. With the practical lanyard you can always secure the Independent.

By attaching the Independent at chest height or to the pole, you can protect yourself from obstacles that could injure you in the chest or head area. When the Independent comes on, you should move more carefully and possibly feel your stick forward to detect potential obstacles.
