Have fun with your gadget cane!
A gadget cane is a very popular choice because they come in some very stylish, comfortable and clever designs. I know many people who collect more than one.
Yes, they're great to have - and fun to use - but don't forget that your cane height is very important as you shop around!
You'll see gadget canes in adjustable and non-adjustable models. Adjustable models easily adjust to the individual walker. But non-adjustable models need to be custom sized by the manufacturer - or you'll need to cut it down to size before you use it.
To cut a cane down to your proper height, you'll usually need to remove the tip, cut off the extra length then put the tip back on. You can easily fall if your gadget cane is the wrong height.
Folding Seat: Models with folding seats are great if you occasionally need to sit down & take a break from walking, shopping, etc.
Just use it as a cane while you walk, and in seconds, it turns into your own resting seat.
Pool stick: If you, or your loved one, likes playing pool you might want to consider a stylish pool stick cane. There are canes that covert to a full sized pool stick. And there are canes that feature a genuine cue ball as the handle.
Lighted: These are so handy and helpful! The new lighted canes are designed with a small button, on the handle, to activate their high powered bulb that’s placed along the shaft of the cane. They are fantastic to use in the dark, less bright areas or on steps.
Umbrella: If you spend time outside, an umbrella cane is a great choice for rain and sun protection. They come in many beautiful colors & patterns too.
Flask: Need a nip now
& then? Flask canes will make sure you can have a sip of your favorite
beverage wherever you walk! They have clever internal flasks hidden within the shaft.
Clock: Do you like to know what time it is? Then you’ll want to check out the lovely canes with clocks built right into the ball shaped handles.
Self Defense or Protection: You’ll see several interesting types of self-defense models including club canes, sword canes and stun gun canes. Club canes are usually made of a very heavy hardwood with a brass or carved wood top. A sword cane has a concealed blade or point. And the stun gun canes have a built-in taser! Amazing. You can use these to protect yourself from animals or thugs.
