In our country, many old people are not willing to walk with the walking stick because they are afraid that others may think they no longer can move, or it may show that they are in the process of aging. As a result, old people choose to walk with the umbrella, instead. By walking with the umbrella, they not only can get support, but also when it rains, they can make use of it. However, during the pouring rain, the umbrella can no longer be the walking stick because it is used to block the rain. As a result, it becomes very dangerous to walk on the slippery road. This design hides the walking stick in umbrellas main body.
