Walking sticks have been used to improve stability at least as far back as Biblical times and probably long before then. As time has passed, the design of walking sticks has changed in both form and materials.
At one time, walking sticks were made of cane, which is where the nomenclature originally derived from. Now, stronger and more durable materials are often used in the manufacturing of walking sticks, such as ash, oak, aluminum or titanium, though we now commonly refer to any walking stick as a cane.
One of the most recent—and perhaps the most practical—developments in the design of the cane is what some users fondly refer to as the “gravity defying” cane. Through its unique, patented design, the HurryCane® provides a stability that has never before been had from standard canes. Of course, the HurryCane® doesn’t literally defy gravity, but it probably feels a lot like that to folks who are used to the wobbly sensation of a regular cane.
One of the features that has made the HurryCane® the #1 selling cane in the U.S. is the bottom of the cane where it meets the ground. A traditional cane has just one point of contact. As the user begins to walk, the bottom of the cane pivots on the edge of that point, which causes great instability. As a result, traditional canes are difficult or impossible to use on any surface that is not completely even, greatly limiting the mobility of the user.
The bottom of the HurryCane®, however, has three points of contact, just like the human foot. This provides a much greater surface area, which in turn improves stability. This extra surface area makes it possible to use the HurryCane® to walk with ease over a wide variety of uneven terrains, including snow, gravel, grass, mulch and even sand. This same feature allows the HurryCane® to stand upright without the user having to constantly hold on to it.
A second feature that distinguishes the HurryCane® from traditional canes is a pivoting joint located just above the base of the cane. This 360-degree pivoting joint acts much like the human ankle, in that it allows the user to lean on the cane at an angle while retaining the three points of contact at the base. This single feature is yet another reason why users feel an increased sense of security while using the HurryCane®.
Yet a third remarkable feature of the HurryCane® that places it miles ahead of the competition is the two flexible, foldable joints on the stem of the cane. These joints mimic the knee joint in the human body. But with two joints instead of one, the HurryCane® can be easily folded and stored away in a purse, side bag (for wheelchair users) or on the seat of a car. So instead of an awkward, rigid stick that is tricky to stow, users gain a mobility and flexibility that they never had with a traditional cane. Once extended, the HurryCane® assumes its sturdy, rigid form until it’s ready to be stored again.
HurryCane® users have reported nothing less than life-changing mobility. Try the HurryCane® today and experience the difference it can make in your life.
