HurryCane Review – The Foldable Walking Cane
The HurryCane is a collapsible, creatively designed innovative cane designed to move with you for a support system that’s more comfortable than the standard cane. Designed by researchers who studied the way human joints flex and function, this cane grants the user a more flexible range of motion without compromising sturdiness.
- Adjustable Height
- Pivoting Base for Different Standing Positions
- Three Stabilizing Feet
- Encourages Mobility
- Collapses to 1/3rd Its Size
- Doesn’t look like a candy cane
- Might discourage you from ever using a standard cane again
If you ever feel like using a cane restricts your mobility more than it enhances it, you’re not alone. The human body is built to move, so it’s designed to maintain stability as you bend, twist, and turn. Traditional canes are about as rigid as they can be, and sometimes feel like they’re threatening to snap at extreme pressure and awkward angles (if they don’t (literally) let you down first!)
Inspired by how joints flex to compensate for moving at angles, the HurryCane has a unique base that pivots like an ankle to enable easier maneuvering with trusty support for situations such as rising from a chair or mounting a flight of stairs. If your posture requires you to lean or bend in unusual ways that traditional canes aren’t in favor of, the HurryCane has your back. The rotating base lends additional support for walking at angles, and even on uneven floors and inclines.
The secret to its thoroughly convenient design is a team of researchers who studied the physics of physiology and how the human body works to stabilize itself while remaining versatile. They then applied the same standards that prosthetic limbs adhere to in an effort to make this cane function as an extension of the human body, as opposed to a simple staff.
So, Why the HurryCane?
Standard canes only have one support point, with direct impact from hand to ground, that can put additional pressure on joints, while the human body has parts that work in conjunction with one another. An ergonomically designed handle reduces pressure on your hand, so the HurryCane stays comfortable even during prolonged usage. The foot has three key support points, much like the base of your foot, that grip the floor with individual rubberized feet for a softer, sturdier hold and better balance, while still allowing the base to move freely like an ankle would.
The human body is extremely responsive to changes in environment; if you’re walking on gravel, your body will try to shift your weight for a better hold on the ground to prevent tripping. The foot of the HurryCane mirrors this action, and is designed to adjust for different walking conditions—from sand, to grass, to carpet, to smooth flooring, this all terrain cane can handle it all.
Although there are other multi-footed canes on the market, the HurryCane is the only one available that utilizes unique technology to support and protect you. In addition to its Stabil-Step foot that keeps a steady hold on the ground, Tri-Grip™ designed feet that hug the floor without hundering movement and Never-Slip™ pivoting head that provides you with the support at any angle, and the most flexible range of motion, the HurryCane is constructed from anodized aluminum that is lightweight enough to keep you moving fast, but still strong enough to support up to 250 pounds.
If that’s not enough, this pressure-tested cane has the ability to conveniently fold out of the way. Traditional canes are long and inflexible, meaning they have to be hooked onto chairs or placed on the floor when you’re in the middle of an activity, which can be frustrating if you have back problems that prevent you from bending. The unit can also stand on its own, thanks to the HurryCane’s tri-foot design, so your hands can be free for hugs, reaching for items, and other tasks that require two hands.
The HurryCane has three joints that enable it to be collapsed—after separating the joints, it quickly folds to one third of its size to just over 11 inches for convenient placement in bags, on laps, or any other convenient space. When you need it again, the cane expands to its normal height in a flash. It also comes with a convenient carry bag of its own for handy storage and protection.
Best of all, the cane adjusts with the simple touch of a button located at the top of the pole. Simply pull or push the handle for taller or shorter options from one of the five heights between thirty-one and a half inches, to thirty-six and one fourth of an inch.
This FDA listed cane weighs only 1.5 lbs, but don’t let its light weight fool you; it’s proven to be stronger and more versatile than other canes, placing it in a league of its own. The HurryCane comes with a 30 day customer satisfaction guarantee, so if you’re not completely satisfied, return it to the manufacturer for a full refund (minus shipping and handling costs).
