Over the years my husband has been in hospital several times, and needed assistance once he came home. For these emergencies I have a wheelchair, a walker, a regular cane/stick, and now the EECOO Self Standing Folding Walking Cane Lightweight Walking Stick with LED Light, and Cushion Handle Adjustable Folding Cane. This can be used for either sex.
Where do I start. First off, it stands on it’s own, as it has the four pronged foot. That means that you can use it from a sitting position, or a standing one. It folds up, which is great when it is not needed, and easy to open when required.
It gives really good support, and my husband weighs around 166 pounds, and it holds his weight. I read that it is good up to 200 pounds. It has a bright flashlight, which really helps if you fall asleep, and it’s dark when you wake up, or if you are out at night.
It is sturdily made, and adjustable, for all heights. This means that 2 elderly people could use it, and be comfortable for both of them.
From the Amazon website: ‘TWO-HANDLE DESIGNED: Resilient sponge handle effectively reduce the damage to hands caused by vibration and friction. The second pivoting handle creates an equal weight distribution system, reduces strain on back and legs, effectively help sit and stand up.’
My husband is doing good right now, but I know that this cane will come in handy. I have it close to his chair, just in case he needs it.
I did receive this product at a discounted price, and wanted to share the benefits of buying one for someone who is a little unsteady on their feet.
