When a man gets old ,his body function degenerate gradually.it’s not easy for old people to stand up from the chair.For this problem ,we design a cane to assist the elderly to stand up.The size of cane is from ergonomic data.In the middle of the cane,we made a concave and the surface of concave is a soft silicone.When elderly want to stand up ,his hands hold on the upper arc handle of the cane and pull down ,his knee put on the concave which can be regard as a fulcrum,the old man and the cane form a leverage mechanism which can reduce the power of the leg and knee.So it can assist the elderly easy to stand up from the chair.
