Walking stick adaptation

Walking Stick AdaptationA client wanted an attachment for his walking stick to allow him to keep his stick upright when shaking hands, getting change out of his pocket etc., without having to swop his stick over into his other hand.

A rubber ‘plate’ was fixed to the base of the stick by an aluminium tube section and a self-tapping screw. The client stands on the edge of the plate, keeping the stick upright. The plate was made from rubber so as not to trip the client and provide a non-slip contact with the ground. It can also be easily replaced if necessary.

Client can now keep his walking stick on his right side of his body, even when his right hand is needed.
