Wall Tracking with the Cross Cane Technique 

Wall Tracking with the Cross Cane Technique:

– You can slide the cane along the wall without lifting its tip from the ground.

– Wall tracking helps detect doors and turns, making navigation easier.

Overcoming Obstacles with the Crossed Walking Stick Technique:

– When encountering an obstacle, a visually impaired individual can use the tip of the cane to follow around it, similar to following a wall.

– If the cane gets caught in someone else’s cane or foot, the user can hold it upright in front of them to free it and continue using the crossed cane technique.
