Did you know that nearly half of all American seniors struggle with their mobility? In the past two years, the use of mobility devices, such as walking sticks, in the U.S. has increased over 50%. Many seniors even need more than one device to help them through their day.
Devices like walking sticks are exceptionally useful, and can even increase life expectancy by enabling their users to participate in more activities than they would normally be able to. Walking sticks are designed to alleviate stress from a weak or pained side of the body, shifting it to the stronger side. This is a blessing particularly for folks with hip, knee, or ankle injuries. But for some, being able to get around is only half the battle. Elbow, back, and shoulder pain limits their ability to complete tasks without painful stretching, straining, and bending over.
We’ve all been there: dropping some change, your keys, a piece of mail. Not only is it difficult to bend down, but sometimes it is painful or difficult to pick smaller objects up off the ground. Then there’s the challenge of trying to place or remove an object from a high shelf. Stepladders can be dangerous enough as it is, but the risk of overextending yourself is easy to overlook. Furthermore, overextending yourself re-aggravate old ailments, and undo the benefits of surgery or therapy.
Don’t you think it would be nice to find a mobility device that comes with two tools in one? Then we may have just the tool you’re looking for.
Say Hello to the Handy Cane!
The Handy Cane is a lightweight walking cane, with a grasper tool built right inside. Built from stainless steel, and space age plastics, the Handy Cane can support up to 350 lbs of weight, and its convenient built in grabber can lift objects of up to 5 lbs.
The guiding principle behind the Handy Cane’s manufacturing is “Elegance in Design,” which is why this device is as strong as it is stylish. At first glance, it’s a walking stick and nothing more — but simply push down on the cane’s sleeve, and the grasper tool pops right out from the bottom of the cane. Slide it back up, and the grasper retracts; it couldn’t be any easier.
And perhaps best of all, the Handy Cane is made with pride right here in the United States of America!
So if you want to know what you can do with your cane, why not see what the Handy Cane can do for you?
