Rapidly Retractable Cane
The purpose of this product design is to develop a cane that can be stored more easily. The primary innovation lies in designing a multi-layered storage mechanism, which enables rapid expansion, retraction, or storage to meet user needs in various situations. In order to enable single-hand operation, the proposed design feature gravity latches inside all sections of the cane’s retractable shaft, which can be changed based on user movement direction (either up or down), thus providing rapid expansion and retraction in different circumstances.
