The Pathlighter cane shines light at your feet so you can walk with greater assurance and safety. It not only provides the exceptional support of traditional orthopedic offset style canes, it offers the added safety of a light built right into the shaft to help see what surrounds you. It provides additional safety in the dark for the vision impaired as well as peace of mind for their loved ones. And because the light switch is on the end of the handle, it's easy to turn on with a simple push of a button.Before using the Pathlighter cane, be sure the length is right for you. A 30 degree angle from forearm to grip is recommended. To adjust the length, simply remove the tip and cut off extra length from the bottom of the polycarbonate tube with a hacksaw.
