Free-Standing Design A Breakthrough For Walking Canes
Modern design for walking cane encourages more use
According to a study performed in the United Kingdom related to how the elderly think they are characterized by others while using canes, the following was discovered: "Initial use of walking aids made participants feel self-conscious about appearing old. These feelings were so strong that some described how they had initially avoided using aids at first. Those who were unable to avoid using walking aids still felt an initial negativity towards them, because they represented ageing."
A stable design involving four elastic feet on the base of The Handy Cane contributes to the free-standing nature of this walking aid. It stays upright when left behind by its user. This feature not only enables its owner to use both hands to perform tasks, it can also draw negative attention away from The Handy Cane.
There is yet another feature of The Handy Cane, which helps make it an inconspicuous walking aid. This cane collapses. The standard push-button mechanism found on underarm crutches is employed with The Handy Cane that not only allows for 10 height adjustments between 30 inches (77 centimeters) and 40 inches (100 centimeters), but lets it drop to a height of 25 inches (65 centimeters) perfect for discreet storage in social settings.
