DO IT YOURSELF PURPOSE: To enable an individual with blindness or low vision to explore areas at the head or chest level without using bare hands. A lecturer's telescoping pointer can be used as a mini cane to locate sinks or soap dispensers in unfamiliar restrooms; to search a work table or other large surface; locate items too hot, too dirty, or too high to use only hands; or to search for head-high obstacles. Most pointers of this type include a pocket clip and collapse sufficiently to be carried in a pocket or purse. TITLE: A Mini Cane with Many Uses (in Springboard). AUTHOR: Nancy Rinker. JOURNAL: RE:view. REF: Vol 35 no 2, Summer 2003: p. 84. PAGES (including cover): 2 2003.
