Features of the Lasercane
The lasercane is a lightweight adjustable walking stick
with a laser cueing system specifically designed for individuals
with gait freezing or gait ignition failure such as occurs
in Parkinsonís Disease and other Parkinsonian conditions.
When the laser is switched on and the stick is lightly pressed down onto the ground as occurs
with normal use, the laser is activated and projects a line
onto the ground in front of the user. This Laser line acts
as a visual cue to help trigger the first walking step, break
freezing episodes, and increase stride length.
The laser is automatically switched off again when the cane
is lifted from the floor to prevent the possibility of shining
the laser upwards. Always ensure that the laser is switched off when not in use and kept out of reach of children.
