OMG - $40.00 for a folding cane ?
Heck, I bought a folding cane at my drugstore for half that amount..and I bet mine weighs less, fits in my handbag and is less cumbersome that this cane.

I saw them on tv but never in person it does look interesting though, I know when I use my regular cane it is difficult to try to set it down or hang it on something, and the ones with the 4 prong bottom are cumbersome but this one looks smaller at the bottom and since it flexes really looks like it would work well. But I would want to try one in hand to make sure it would be steady enough.

I see it for $29.95 and shipping. But the reviews definitely are not great.

However what you can do is go to walgreens they have these special tips you can put on any cane that makes it stand up and if it falls down you can step on the edge of the tip and make is pop back up. There are a few different ones and they are not nearly as large or cumbersom as a full 4 prong cane. These are examples.

just check your cane size but most are the same size. I have a few canes, I do have a folding one but it has a solid wood curved Derby handle which will begin to hurt my hand after a while, my fave one is a light weight pink aluminum offset with a very cushioned hand grip, light weight and easy on the hand, and fully adjustable.

I saw a cool cane today, Raven - someone had epoxied the cane into a small child's cowboy boot! I asked the lady about it and she said it makes the cane stand up by itself and she showed me - it was So CUTE!

I use a quad cane (4 footed cane) and I decorate it for every holiday and season. Those of you who use canes should decorate yours. It makes using them so much more enjoyable and people enjoy seeing the various decorations. This can be done with walkers too.
