I’m reading some documentation about wayfinding techniques for blinks and others with other disabilities, and in the definitions section, it mentions the Hoople Mobility Aid. It’s supposed to be an alternative to the cane, and amazingly, it’s not full of electronics. It sounds kinda cool! Is there any reason it didn’t take off? Or did it, but only in the UK? What does it look like? I sort of kind of know but I can’t quite picture it. Are there oodles of UK folks walking around with hooples? Somebody enlighten me.
