Original-black-guidance-aid-on-stand

The Ramble Tag guidance aid is designed to be worn on the upper arm of a guide to increase independence for visually impaired people.

It was designed by two neighbours, Tom and Laura, who wanted a guiding aid that can be used in a variety of settings, such as outdoor walks, running, using public transport or attending social events.

So, rather than holding the guide’s elbow, wrist or hand, the visually impaired person can hold a handle attached to the Ramble Tag that is strapped comfortable to the guide’s upper arm.

The Ramble Tag comes in four types and colours to fit your style and accessibility needs.

This is the perfect alternative solution for guiding visually impaired people and a great stylish and practical gift for Christmas.
