The HurryCane: Keep ‘Em Upright (The Cane AND The Senior Citizen!)
Canes just might be a fact of life. Even the most sturdy of senior citizens might eventually need a cane to lean upon.
As my Mom’s primary caregiver, I wrote a lot of online articles about caregiving. Heck I’ve even written my own book Senior Citizen Caregiving 101; Things I Wish I Had Known.
Anyway, from those articles, there are some standout products that are purchased time and time again. That’s where the HurryCane comes into play.
The HurryCane stands out among other canes for its sturdiness and pivoting foot – the pivoting foot makes it much sturdier on inclines or uneven ground.
It’s also a great cane in that it’s freestanding – the HurryCane doesn’t have to be leaned against a wall (where one can trip – I know of what I type).
With the HurryCane, you won’t have to worry about your elderly loved one bending down to pick up a fallen cane. Note: a few reviewers note that the HurryCane doesn’t stand well on its own on a carpeted floor. It works better on bare floors. However, the same reviewers also note that, if the HurryCane does fall over, it’s very easy to get it back upright simply by stepping on the three-toed base with your foot.
The HurryCane comes in stylish black, has 5 different height settings from 31.50 inches to 36.24 inches. It also supports a weight of 250 lbs and folds down to a very compact 11.5 inches so it’s very easy to store.
With 748 customer reviews giving the HurryCane on Amazon.com a solid 4 out of 5 star reviews, the HurryCane is the clear leader in canes for those on the go.
