standup & go / The stick for the blind

standup & go
standup & go

Blind people often use a stick when they are walking. But when they are getting old, a solid walking stick would be helpful for standing up from the sitting position. Now stand up & go unites the features of both types. Furthermore, it offers extra safety by electric lights powered by electromagnetic induction simply by rolling the ball at the bottom - in the same manner as common blindmans sticks.
According to the principle of electromagnetic induction, electricity is generated by the rolling of the ball.
To be noticeable from the drivers at night, the Blind need safety lights.To switch on and off the lamp the switch must be pressed.
