Hello / cane (Product)


The cane acts as an assistant when the elderly walk, and we started the study with the question such as what if the elderly can take a rest for a while leaning against the cane.
What they can do during the break are looking around, and conversations with people around them.As they stop, they can do those activities more easily comparing when they were walking. When you spread the cane of the product in x shape, it changes from a cane into a simple walker, so that you can take a rest for a while. The anticipated effect of the “Stop Cane” is to provide more opportunities to interact and meet neighbors while increasing amount of activities.
