64. TETHER DELUXE

FOR WALK-JOG-RUN SITUATIONS A BLIND OR LOW VISION CONSUMER MAY NEED THE ASSISTANCE OF A SIGHTED GUIDE.

SO BEING HITCHED TO ANOTHER PERSON PRESENTS THE CHOICE OF EITHER A STRETCHY OR NON-STRETCHY CONNECTION.

HOWEVER, EVEN MORE IMPORTANT WILL BE WHAT MATERIAL AND WHAT LENGTH IS BEST FOR THE EXERCISE ENVIRONMENT.

HERE ARE SOME IDEAS...

1. SLICE OF TOWELING
2. PIECE OF ROPE
3. SECTION OF CORD
4. STRIP OF LEATHER
5. HEAVYWEIGHT BOOTLACE

WHILE A STRETCHY BUNGEE CORD INCLUDES END HOOKS FOR HOLDING, THE ABOVE NO STRETCH OPTIONS CAN BE FASHIONED WITH WRIST, HAND OR FINGER LOOPS.

PLUS, TRY USING A BALL OF MATERIAL AT EACH TETHER END TO SQUEEZE IN YOUR FIST - QUITE COMFORTABLE, HOWEVER, REMEMBER THE NEED FOR AIR MOVEMENT TO DRY SWEATY HANDS.

FURTHER, CAREFULLY CONSIDER HAND POSITION AT END OF TETHER, SUCH AS FACING FORWARD VERSUS FACING SIDEWAYS FOR BEST PERSONAL EFFORT.
LIKE BUILDING A BETTER MOUSETRAP, ANY OTHER UNIQUE, GRAB-ON SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE WELCOME.
