▲45° / Alpenstock


The innovation of alpenstock is development from my original idea to provide older people who enjoy the hiking activities with less energy consumed and more safety.We often heard the accident and bad news though the TV or newspaper report for hiking accidently. Therefore the safe hiking does become the number one concern matter to all the family and hikers. The idea for this tool was developed to reduce the accident and does provide hikers with more confident in enjoying activity.
