Why and how does Rango make all the difference?
Rango is an electronic product to be fixed on a traditional white cane, which allows visually impaired people to better detect obstacles and more easily find their way around.
The traditional white cane can detect obstacles at ground level, but it does not do a good job of detecting those that are high or have little footprint, such as mailboxes, truck tailgates when making deliveries, some fences, restaurant tables or tree branches. When scanning the white cane, it is also common to miss some ground level obstacles, especially those that are narrow.
All this causes stress and fatigue and induces a high risk of injury.
That’s where Rango comes in. With Rango, using a white cane becomes safer. Journeys become more serene, more fluid, and above all safer.
Rango is a medical device that makes white canes smart. Attached to a traditional white cane and connected via Bluetooth to the user’s phone, Rango provides 3D navigation and obstacle location.
Rango is a smart virtual shield which protects from head to toe and shoulder width. It locates and identifies obstacles that represent a danger and transmits useful information to the user in the form of sounds, thanks to extra-auricular earphones, noor, included in the Rango kit.
The dedicated mobile app, Rango, is available on iPhone and Android. By connecting with their smartphones, users get additional services on the go, such as intersection announcements and access to nearby transportation schedules. Rango’s software updates are also offered free of charge through the mobile application. GoSense ensures that its users, the Rangonauts, have continuous product evolution as close as possible to their needs and to the field.
Rango has a full body detection system.
