LETIsmart LUCE is the innovative kit that illuminates the last segment of your white cane. Walking in the evening or in low light conditions will become safer.
LETIsmart LUCE illuminates the last segment of your cane with a cold and pulsating light recognizable from a great distance. The light beam is directed towards the ground, evenly, around the stick. The light is designed not to disturb the user, which is why 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 street with the certainty of being seen by vehicles. You will know that the driver will stop at the bus stop. You will help other people to understand if you are in trouble.
Made using the most innovative microelectronic technologies, LETIsmart LUCE is a small and light kit that replaces the part near the tip of your stick. No need to change it: LETIsmart LUCE maintains the characteristics you are used to and eliminates the risk of losing the elastic during replacement. It is compatible with the most popular models of white cane and interchangeable tips with screw coupling.
The LETIsmart LUCE kit is a tubular that replaces the last segment of your white cane. It is built with a particular polymeric material that combines lightness and resistance, even in case of shocks and bad weather. A microcircuit weighing a few grams is hidden inside. It can turn the light on and off automatically by reacting to low light conditions. Its special sensors allow the light to stay on even if the stick is hit by car headlights or other temporary light sources.
Using LETIsmart LUCE is easy. You will know when the kit is active or inactive thanks to a sequence of beeps, which also informs you about the state of charge of the power supply. You will be autonomous in replacing the battery, a normal short style that guarantees you over 30 hours of light signaling. The shutdown is automated: when you fold the stick there will be no need to use buttons, switches or wires.
The LETIsmart LUCE system has been tested by the UICI (Italian Union of the Blind and Visually Impaired People), patented by SCEN together with the creator Marino Attini and subsequently certified by the I.RI.Fo.R (Institute for research, training and rehabilitation in visual impairment). It was also tested with the professional collaboration of ANIOMAP (National Association of Instructors for Personal Autonomy Mobility Orientation).
LETIsmart LUCE was born from the idea of Marino Attini, president of the Trieste section of the Italian Union of the Blind and Visually Impaired People and expert in consumer electronics, and SCEN, a leading company in the microelectronics sector. The great experience in military, medical and aerospace technologies of SCEN and its important collaborations all over the world give your LETIsmart LUCE cane unique characteristics. The result is a highly technological product, simple and affordable for everyone.
