Ambutech cane tips are made from a variety of materials and come in a number of different shapes and sizes. They are attached to Ambutech canes in one of 3 ways: Hook-on, Slip-on or 8mm Threaded.
All Ambutech cane tips have been designed to work with the two predominate mobility techniques: two-point touch and constant contact.
