Introducing the next revolution in walking sticks
If you’re worried about stumbling on uneven surfaces, a walking stick could give you your confidence back. Mobility Specialist Living Needs recommends theHurryCane – an innovative walking aid that offers better stability and balance than traditional walking sticks.
The HurryCane’s base has three non-slip feet for added grip and balance. When most walking canes are tilted, the base ends up at an angle, so you’re at greater risk of slipping. With the HurryCane, the stick itself can pivot while the base remains firmly on the ground. This means you get much better support, whether you’re using the HurryCane to climb a hill or just to give you extra leverage when rising out of a chair.
In short, The HurryCane is much less likely to slip or skid than other sticks, so you’re less likely to lose your balance and fall. It can also be used on a variety of terrains, including pavements, dirt paths, lawns, carpets, wooden flooring and more.
Traditional walking sticks can be awkward to store when they’re not in use. They tend to get leaned against walls or doors and often fall over, creating a trip hazard and forcing people to bend to pick them up. The HurryCane stands up by itself. It can also be folded up to pack away in its carry bag, a handbag or briefcase.
David Walter from Living Needs tells us, “It’s crucial that any walking aid is the right height for the person using it. If it’s too short or long, it could affect your stability, be uncomfortable to use and cause you back pain. TheHurryCane has eight height settings and can be adjusted with just the press ofa button.”
