Break a Leg...
Recently due to an unfortunate circumstance I found myself at the emergency room helping out a friend. Once the situation seemed to be in order I was able to look at my surroundings and felt bleak and defeated by what I was faced with. Any fashion designer would feel the same about the threadbare unsightly gowns. Hospitals are not the cheeriest place to begin with. Do people realize the positive impact one could make by changing up the interiors?
The same goes for walking sticks, crutches and slings--those things are nasty looking! Say your back goes out and you need a cane to help you along...I can tell you...I've been there and your choices are dismal. So finally from designers Allen Zadeh and Rie Nørregaard a walking stick that doesn't look like it came from the same ER I just visited. Pick your color and hope you get better soon!
Here are the details...they've really thought it through.
"The enhanced performance of the unique handle shape means the hand and weight positions directly above the patented tip for maximum stability. The synthetic rubber tip, made from the same material in high-performance athletic shoes, provides cushioning and traction. And the entire thing leans against a wall without falling over. The blond, light-weight birch is hand-finished with Livos oil, an all-natural wood treatment based on renewable raw plant materials and harmless to living things. The high-strength, light-weight aluminum shaft is finished in American bicycle paint. The cane is environmentally and ecologically friendly and completely recyclable. Omhu (om-who) is Danish for "with great care," Allen and Rie took just that in this cane that provides light to moderate support as life happens and an individual's abilities alter."
