Ergonomic Designs Lead To Effective Walking Aids
A walking cane that conforms to the human hand, proves effective.
The repetitive use, extra exertion, and continuous pressure against firm surfaces when using a walking cane can injure the muscles, tendons and the nervous system of several areas on the user's body. Known as regional musculoskeletal disorder, repetitive motion disorder, or repetitive stress injury, the sufferer experiences pain in the hand, wrist, arm, shoulder and even in the back. This pain worsens with activity, leading to discontinued cane usage, and with it, the possibility of reduced mobility by the user.
Furthermore, physicians prescribe surgery when harsh cases of repetitive stress injury are encountered. Other less intrusive treatments include occupational or physical therapy, steroid injections and anti-inflammatory treatments. Even wrist splints are worn once this injury is suffered.
Instead of tightly gripping a hook handle, which can lead to this serious injury, Handy Cane users rest their open palm in the ergonomic handle. This enables an even distribution of weight across the entire open hand. The natural grip of this ergonomic handle results in a relaxed hand, wrist, arm, and back and less strain throughout daily use.
Gravity puts an emphasis on making the Handy Cane fit to the human body, as opposed to the body trying to adapt to the cane. The ergonomic handle on a Handy Cane looks like no other. It is curvaceous in appearance, as it precisely fits the hand. This encourages continual usage by its owners.
