Emphasising on the notion of dynamic walking, Flex spots an elastic shoe design which ‘blossoms’ on contact with the ground. Such not only increases the surface contact, thus making it more stable, but also serves as a reliable anchor for the next step. This motion too cushions the impact as a result of the cane-ground contact, more so when the user leans on the aid. During the walking transitions, the blossomed profile springs right back into a streamlined design which is shyly unobtrusive. This ensures that the movement is natural and dynamic.
