New Walking Cane Design Paves The Way For Prolonged Independence
The Handy Cane offering seniors a way to maintain an independent lifestyle.
The Handy Cane's patented design combines the comfort of ergonomic features with the convenience of a free-standing design and elastic foot that boosts its stability and helps to prevent slipping.
Falls are the top cause of injuries among older adults, and 2.3 million injuries from their non-fatal falls were treated by emergency departments in 2010 alone, according to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention. A walking stick like The Handy Cane can give seniors the assistance they need to remain safe while maintaining their independence, said Vanessa Parker, founder of Gravity Mobility Aids.
"Aged care is a growing concern for the friends and family of senior citizens," Parker said. "Our Handy Cane allows the elderly to stay active while providing the peace of mind that they are reducing the risk of a fall."
The Handy Cane's ergonomic handle for right-handed men and women allows for a more natural, open-palm grip, which can be more comfortable for those with arthritis. The cane's elastic foot was designed to help prevent slippage and provides another layer of comfort by absorbing the initial impact with the floor.
The walking stick is made of quality steel and can be adjusted based on the height of the user. The walking cane also collapses to a discreet 65 centimetres and can be stored out of sight, whether at home or in a restaurant.
"Other free-standing canes like tripods or quad-canes can be heavy and cumbersome. Or those that promise to be free-standing will easily fall over. Retrieving a fallen walking stick can be difficult if not perilous for the elderly," Parker said. "The Handy Cane design solves those issues."
