Care stick for elderly / Walking stick

Care stick for elderly
Care stick for elderly

As it is difficult for the old to see clearly the road conditions at night, it’s for them easy to fall down. So walking during night has always been a troublesome problem among the elderly. Considering this, this kind of walking stick is specially designed for the elderly to walk at night. The leading end of the stick is equipped with clathrate light sources which will be reflected onto the ground. If there are rough road conditions or steps, they will appear in the clathrate light reflected onto the ground. This will enable them to see clearly what is on the road.
