Father’s Day will be here before you know it, and we all want to get our fathers something they can really use. This year, the Wright Stuff has a wide selection of canes and cane accessories that will enhance the practicality of your father’s cane use.
Canes have been around for a long time, and still many people do not make their cane all it could be. In the twenty-first century, the cane should be so much more than a mere stick to walk on. Turn your father’s walking stick into a true piece of adaptive technology.
The trouble of where to rest a cane
When people start to use canes, one of the first things they notice is that canes can get in the way when the user is out and about and has nowhere to put it. Anyone who uses a cane is familiar with the classic attempt to lean the cane against a table or chair seat only for it to fall seconds or minutes later. The INGRID Cane Holder is not your average cane holder. Designed by Swedish experts, the INGRID Cane Holder features a snap-on fitting and two different kinds of rubber props on each side to fit any situation. It works great for tables, countertops, chairs, shopping carts and pretty much any other flat surface you would think to prop your cane on.
But what if there are no good surfaces nearby for your father to put his cane. The Juvo Stand Up Cane Tip may be ideal for him. This state-of-the-art cane holder fits on like a cane tip and doesn’t have to be taken off when the cane is being used. Whether your father prefers the conservative gray colored tip or the bright green tip for increased visibility and depth perception, the Juvo Stand Up Cane Tip will hold his cane upright anywhere there is flat ground.
Break the ice
Another situation in which you could make your father’s cane many times more useful is when there is ice or snow. Slippery, cold, outdoor surfaces can make it impossible to use a regular cane. The Cane, Walker and Crutch Ice Pick with five cleats of plated steel doesn’t play games with ice and snow. Attach with a screwdriver, and your father will confidently navigate the harsh winter elements. The ice pick can stay on the cane and retract when not in use.
If you are looking for a super convenient way for your father to navigate through ice and snow, we also have the handy INGRID Cane Tip with Retractable Spike. This high quality polyurethane tip manufactured in Sweden works like a normal cane tip for any season but has a small easily-retractable stainless steel tip to get him through those slippery situations.
Icy and snowy weather are not the only situations where stability is important. Stairs, grass, gravel and sand are other obstacles to using a cane. Attach the AbleTripod® Base to the end of the cane to provide exponentially more balance. Three pods made of specially weighted rubber compound flex to reduce stress on the user’s hand.
Don’t get caught unprepared on a long walk
Something else to think about for people who use canes is how they will manage long walks. A cane may take your father far, but after a while he will inevitably need to sit down and take a breather. The need to sit down is not always taken into account in public space arrangements these days. We all have been in the situation where we had to walk through a large public or metropolitan area and noticed that for whatever reason, there were no chairs or benches in sight. For those with foot pain or other debilitating conditions, this is detrimental.
The Juvo Travel Cane Seat would be perfect for this emergency situation. You can get it for your father to use when he knows he will be walking in an environment where there may be little seating. The Juvo Travel Cane Seat functions like a normal cane while you are walking but unfolds to become a seat with tripod legs.
One reason our fathers are so important is that they are often a stabilizing force in our lives. When things go wrong, our dads are there to make things right. Give that stabilizing force in your life something to lean on this Father’s Day by turning his ordinary cane into an extraordinary one.
