A Step in the Right Direction
My Third Leg Canes provide support, help with balance and reduces fatigue and pressure on wrists, hands and joints. The unique and smart design of My Third Leg Canes makes people smile, laugh, and they will often comment about the design. Attention is immediately drawn to the cane and away from any disability.
The angle of the handle helps to reduce stress on the hand. Bob learned that having a cane that will allow a person’s wrist to remain in a neutral position blood would flow more readily and people would not get fatigued as easily. By incorporating a 19 degree angle into the handle a person’s wrist will remain much straighter. A straight wrist allows for better blood flow that will enable a person to use the cane for longer periods of time without becoming tired. Grip strength can also be increased by having the wrist in this neutral position.
The handle of My Third Leg Canes is shaped like a cone or tapered cylinder to accommodate the different degree of flexion of each finger. Pressure from the cane should be evenly distributed on as much of the hand and fingers as possible. When a force is concentrated along pressure sensitive areas of the palm, blood flow is restricted. Having a conical shaped handle with a larger surface area that is elevated at a 19 degree angle may reduce the affects of carpal tunnel syndrome as well as fatigue.
My Third Leg Canes are often the cane of choice for people who need a cane but want something out of the ordinary. They are especially popular with people in the medical field, orthopedic patients and that person who needs a cane but hesitates to use one because of the stigma of old age and weakness often associated with an ordinary cane. My Third Leg Canes are not only a conversation piece, they are lightweight, comfortable, exceptionally strong, and available in many lengths. They may be ordered in the most popular bone white or one of many colorful dipped patterns such as flowers, skulls, flames, ACU, Mossy Oak, etc. Special order hand painted art of your choice can also be applied to any cane.
