Jojo is pictured with his back against the wall, he stopped chasing the remote controlled airplane toy after his wearable cane was removed. Jojo's video demonstrates his preference for consistent tactile path information. We see it in his eyes, his hands, his language and his play skills when wearing his cane.


Tactile path information improved his visual functioning

In one video, we hear his mom say this was the first time she had ever seen him run freely towards a toy. She stated that she and her husband had been trying, unsuccessfully, to get him to walk towards a toy since he learned to walk. In one of the after videos, he again struggles to visually locate his toy.
