The ergonomically designed AbleTripod® weighs 8 ounces and makes your cane self-standing, providing maximum stability and function to your cane. Composed of a durable, specially weighted rubber compound, great care was taken to control the right amount of flexibility, giving the base its remarkable performance.
Stairs are now easily managed. Quad canes need to be turned sideways on stairs, making the user uncomfortable and in some cases fearful. The AbleTripod® gives the user confidence to negotiate even the narrowest steps.
The stress of impact on the user's hand is greatly reduced by the AbleTripod, which flexes as you walk. The tips of the pods flex, grabbing while permitting the AbleTripod to roll through, maintaining contact with the ground. The stability of the AbleTripod base is not compromised whether on grass, gravel or sand, whereas typical canes may sink into the ground. "Great for walking on the beach!"
AbleTripod can be used in ways that no other cane can: its unique design enables the user to lean into the cane, experiencing both support and balance. The ability to lateralize gives the user a unique feeling of confidence, knowing that the AbleTripod® is less likely to slip out than quad canes.
AbleTripod is now being used to assist individuals with neurological and orthopedic disorders. Individuals with post-stroke balance disorders, MS, Parkinson's, cerebral palsy, arthritis, post hip and knee surgery and amputees have all benefited by using the AbleTripod. The AbleTripod has been recommended by physicians, Physical Therapists nationwide.
The aesthetically pleasing design enables both left and right-handed people to use the same cane without adjustment.The AbleTripod® is currently being used at several University Hospitals and Rehabilitation Centers and is available in 5 different diameters to accommodate different shaft sizes.
