Need to obtain a Rigid white cane (one-piece)

Hi, everybody! I need to obtain a rigid white cane but don't know of a place that will send rigid canes out for free. Can anyone help?

Have you tried your state agency for the blind or any private blindness agencies near you? Both Maxiaids.com and independentliving.com sell rigid canes and they aren’t expensive so perhaps one of these agencies would be able to help you.

Good luck

I have tried VR and other agencies but no luck yet. My problem is I walk fast but am 5 feet 1 inch so having a cane at least 60 inches long is nice. I don't know if rigid canes are made that long.

Hello, I don't know what a rigid white cane is but I make my own walking sticks. I'd be happy to make you one and mail it to you. You can e-mail me at eskinhealinghands@yahoo.com if you'd like.

I am sure you can buy one from Maxi Aides online.
