The Awarewolf Gear Omni-Sense mobility cane tip introduces the omni-wheel technology to mobility canes for the visually impaired and is an excellent aid for people using constant contact cane techniques.
The omni-wheel design allows the white cane tip to move in all directions just like conventional cane tips but offers significant additional benefits such as: improved sensory and auditory feedback and does not wear out as quickly as conventional cane tips.

Trialed and Developed with Ian Edwards, The Blind Chef
Ian Edwards also known as The Blind Chef helped develop the the Omni-Sense mobility cane tip. After six months of extensive use, this is what he had to say:
"It works well for me both inside and outside. The weight of the attachment is no heavier than a normal ball but it has a lot more wear. On different surfaces it gives me a better feeling, I know where I am, what I am doing; with the sounds as well as the rollers, they make a difference compared to a normal ball. The feedback in my arm changes depending on the surface I am on."

Omni-wheel Technology In White Cane Tips
Omni-wheels are different from regular wheels in that they have specialized rollers attached to them around the circumference of the main wheel disc. These rollers allow a wheel to move easily in all directions, similar to a caster wheel, but much more fluidly and don't catch or stick. Rotacaster's world-leading, omni-wheel technology is unique due to its patented construction, non-corrosive materials and unrivaled strength and durability.
