Schools and agencies

Safe Toddles imagines a world where the adults in schools feel relaxed and assured in the knowledge that the student with mobility visual impairment or blindness has effective tools that keep harmful body collisions at a minimum.

Easy steps

​1. Identify students with MVI/B

The nonverbal mobility visual impairment assessment assists in identifying students who need the security and confidence provided by pediatric belt canes.

2. Measure students with MVI/B (the largest and smallest sizes are indicated below)

Size information:

Canes measurements needed (for best results request a free measuring kit.)

Height:          Floor to shoulder shortest size 26" to longest size 36".

Hip width:    (hip to hip) smallest 6" to largest 9" (The hip to hip measurement

                      is obtained using a ruler or ST caliper (not a measuring tape).

Waist size:    Waist circumference -smallest 17" to largest 25" (measuring tape).​​​

The tight spaces frame is 90% of the length of the daily cane. It is for use in areas where the longer frame is restricted by heavy objects and appears to cause distress. The design of the cane tips are to reduce the incidence of catching on furniture (note the cane is pictured on a stand).
