FOLDING CANE AMBUTECH
LUCE. The best way to show us!
LETIsmart LUCE is the innovative kit that illuminates the last segment
of your white cane. Walking in the evening or in low light will become
safer. In practice LETIsmart is a wand with light that replaces the
last section of your folding cane.
Always. To everyone.
LUCE illuminates the last segment of your cane with a cold,
pulsing light that can be recognized from a great distance. The light
beam is directed towards the ground, evenly, around the cane. The light
is designed not to disturb the user, so it is also suitable for those
who are visually impaired. When it is dark or the environment is poorly
lit, with LETIsmart LUCE you can cross the road with the security of
being seen by cars. You will know that the driver will stop at the bus
stop. You will help other people to understand if you are in trouble.
cane becomes smart.
with the most innovative microelectronics technologies, LETIsmart
LUCE, as mentioned, is a small and light kit that replaces the last
cane near the tip of the cane. LETIsmart LUCE maintains unchanged the
technical and usage characteristics you are used to. It is compatible
with the most common models of white canes and interchangeable tips
with screw coupling.
jewel of microelectronics.
LETIsmart LUCE kit is a tubular that replaces the last segment of
your cane. It is built with a particular polymeric material that
combines lightness and strength, even in case of impacts and bad
weather. Inside there is a microcircuit weighing a few grams. It is
able to turn on and off the light automatically reacting to low light
conditions. Its special sensors allow the light to stay on even if the
cane is hit by the light from car headlights or other temporary light
autonomous with LETIsmart LUCE.
LETIsmart LUCE is easy. You will know when the kit is on or off
thanks to a sequence of beeps, which also informs you about the battery
charge status. You will be autonomous in replacing the battery, a
standard microstyle that guarantees you more than 30 hours of light
signaling. The shutdown is automated: when you fold the cane there will
be no need to use buttons, switches or wires.
LUCE has been tested and certified by the Italian Union of
the Blind and the Visually Impaired, by the IRI.Fo.R (Institute for
Research, Training and Rehabilitation in Visual Disability) and by
ANIOMAP (National Association of Guidance Guidance for Mobility
Guidance) personal autonomy), the most important realities operating in
LUCE was born from the idea of Marino Attini, president of
the Trieste branch of the Italian Blind and Partially sighted and
consumer electronics, and SCEN, a leading company in the
microelectronics sector. SCEN's great experience in military, medical
and aerospace technologies and its important collaborations all over
the world attribute unique features to your LETIsmart LUCE cane. The
result is a highly technological product, simple and affordable for

models of canes does LETIsmart LUCE apply to?
LETIsmart only applies to the folding cane:
- Canadian White cane in Graphite, code HG4690.
The cane HG4690 with applied LETIsmart LUCE has the rotating tip in the
form of a cylinder with screw coupling.
Info on the "Roller" tip.
The "Roller" tip consists of a rotating drill bit, made of hard nylon,
of a cylindrical shape with hook or screw hooking.
This tip allows the cane to slide even on uneven ground such as
cobblestones and porphyries.
Very convenient for "diagonal" and "pendulum" techniques.
Thanks to its size does not slip into the road gratings.
Dimensions (excluding the screw):
- diameter: 3.5 cm.
- height: 4.5 cm.
Weight: 38 gr.
features of the LETIsmart LUCE.
- Water resistant, as long as it is not completely immersed.
- Shock resistant.
- It has neither wires nor switches and switches off automatically with
a magnetic sensor when the cane is folded and placed parallel to the
segment that precedes it emitting a sound signal, "beep", closing.
- Simple replacement of a common AAAA microstyle battery by the blind
or partially sighted user.
- Average value of battery life: for example with a use of the cane
equal to 6 hours per day of which 1 hour with LETIsmart LUCE on we have
a range of 12 days.
- Power supply: 1.5 V alkaline microstyle battery, AAAA, included.
