Stand strong cane / walking cane

Stand strong cane
Stand strong cane

When a cane is not in use, people lean a cane on a wall or furniture. Quite often times it loses balance and falls down on the floor.
Just by adding a small branch on its main shaft, "Stand strong cane" greatly increased the stability of the cane when it is leaned on a flat vertical surface. Since the height of the table for adult has been standardized within limited range, one preset angled branch can help the cane to lean on most tables. Also the branch part is bent into slight angle so that it creates tripod like orientation when leaned on the wall which makes it far more stable than other regular canes.
