Description of Special Situations and Conditions and Mobility Devices

Chapter 10 highlights such special travel situations as traveling on escalators, in elevators, through revolving doors, and on private and public transportation systems, as well as safety considerations in various environments. It also examines various or alternate mobility devices besides the long cane, such as a dog guide, ambulation aids (such as walkers, crutches, support canes, adaptive mobility devices, or electronic travel aids), along with the relatively recent use of electronic orientation aids and global positioning systems (GPSs).
