Warm Walking Stick / walking stick

Warm Walking Stick
Warm Walking Stick

Warm Walking Stick is a walking stick exclusively designed for the aged people. As the aged people use walking sticks in winter, their hands are often exposed in the freezing air. Because of their feeble blood circulation to fingers, their hands are often cold, hazarding their health. In this case, we improve the design of the walking stick by attaching a simple electricity transformation device at the bottom of the stick to transform the aged people’s pressure on the stick into heat in order to warm up the stick’s handle. In this way, the aged people can warm their palms with the stick handle, adding warmth to their daily life in winter.
