Free Belt Canes
Until the Child Outgrows them!

Safe Toddles seeks families and professionals to join our video library by contributing before and with belt cane videos. These videos assist in improving belt cane design, demonstrating outcomes to potential users and demonstrates the abilities of toddlers and preschoolers who are blind once they acquire consistently safe mobility.


Everyone who is obtaining a pediatric belt cane is encouraged to consider participating by submitting videos to us - we need you!
