Introducing The Ramble Tag -
Designed and made in the UK.

We are excited to tell you about our guidance aid invention.  It was invented in the  spring of 2018, and enables blind and visually impaired people to enjoy more freedom and safety, while walking with their guide. 
 
What is this thing you must be asking! 
 
A Ramble Tag is a very simple, yet stylish, lightweight harness which should be  wrapped around the arm of a guide and fastened with the adjustable Velcro straps.  There is a padded, comfortable handle on the harness which the person being guided can then hold onto.  So simple but a real game changer.   
Don’t be fooled by the simplicity though, we made about 50 prototypes by hand, before we settled on the perfect materials and measurements.
 
The Tag was invented by my neighbour Tom, who is blind, and myself who acts as his guide.  Sharing a creative background, the concept sparked then exploded on one of our dog walks.   We were chatting about how a guided experience could be made more fluid, and what could give the blind person more independence and the guide more confidence.  ( Should I mention our disobedient dogs that kept pulling us in different directions and separating us! )
 
The Ramble Tag is our answer!  It was designed with great care, and a shared understanding of some of the issues that can arise using traditional methods.
 
As it is a contactless guidance method, it is particularly useful for those who wish to avoid touching their guide.  Physical boundaries can be easily respected and the overall feedback, from those who have experienced it, is very positive.  If you’re not totally sold on the idea, you can buy one and return it within 14 days.

We developed a range of Tags to suit all. We have a small one, for either running with a guide, or guiding a child. We also made the more compact Metro Tag, which you'll find in shop.
