Maintain Your Upright Posture, Balance & Stability

Ethel has been using The 3rd Foot Cane since she was 94. She's now 97 years old! She walks every day with confidence with the 3rd Foot Cane. The 3rd Foot Cane lets you stand up straight and walk without leaning onto a cane handle to maintain balance!


Walk With Confidence

Unlike traditional canes, The 3rd Foot Cane foot maintains a 2nd point of contact throughout the walking cycle. The offset cane foot redistributes weight from the hip, knee, and ankle joints onto the cane foot. Helping maintain your body's natural alignment, balance and stability when walking so you can get back to doing the things you love doing!


Maintain Balance And Walk Upright With The 3rd Foot Cane

How To Use The Cane Handle

How To Use

Adjust the cane height high enough so that your weight is evenly distributed between the cane foot and your feet with your arm close to your side.

Wrap your index finger around the front of the cane handle. Place your thumb across the top of the cane handle or around the cane shaft.

Keep your arm and hand close to your side when walking. Your hand relaxed. The cane foot maintains your balance not the cane handle like a traditional cane. 

Use the cane foot with the foot next to the cane or with the opposite foot. If you have a weaker side put the cane next to your stronger leg and move the cane foot with the opposite foot.

When the back of your foot strikes the ground the back of the cane foot strikes the ground together with it.

Let your weight roll over the cane foot and your foot together from back to front (heel to toe) when walking.

When you press down on the front of your foot press down on the front of the cane foot at the same time.

When bending down or on the stairs use the cane foot with the opposite foot.

The 3rd Foot Cane is designed to move your body not ahead of your body like a traditional cane when you walk. The cane foot is designed to move together with your foot. The cane foot maintains your balance, stability, and upright posture without extending your arm and leaning on a cane handle to maintain balance.

How Not To Use!

This is not a traditional cane that you adjust to wrist height, extend your arm and move the cane foot ahead of your body and lean on the cane handle to maintain balance.

To get the benefit of the cane and regain a balanced, upright, stable walking gait when walking adjust and use The 3rd Foot correctly.

If you hold the cane handle incorrectly and only use the front of the cane foot you won't get the benefit of the cane or feel stable.

Use the cane handle with your index finger around the front of the cane shaft. Use the entire cane foot from back to front, like a foot and together with your foot and not just the front of the cane foot. See our How-to-Use page for more information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best cane I’ve ever used and I’ve used a lot

Reviewed in the United States on May 12, 2022

 After 20 years of multiple sclerosis and foot drop, I’ve used many different canes, walking sticks, forearm crutches, and wheelchairs (see pic). I’m what you might call a “caneisseur“ 😀I bought the Aligned as Designed cane 15 months ago, not long after leaving my wheelchairs and working hard to walk again. Since then, I’ve bought three more - two additional for me to use as a pair on longer walks and one as a gift for my uncle with Parkinson’s (he hated regular canes but liked this). My post-wheelchair walking is a work in progress, but check out the video to see how it is now.This cane looks, balances, and works differently than conventional canes. It’s a tool to help you stand tall and walk better, with less pain. It’s great for all that. Follow the instructions and their helpful videos and you’ll be happily surprised. If you just want a cane to help get out of chairs and get to the bathroom, or you prefer to walk hunched over, then any old regular cane should do. If you want to walk more like you used to and stay at eye level with others, and are a willing to try a new way, the AaD cane is a great choice.

"I’ve now tried it out on several long walks, and I’ve not only found it very easy to use with the help of the video. This is also the first time in a very long time that a cane gives me enough support with my balance that I feel confident to look anywhere else than on the ground right in front of me. So it’s really making a huge difference. Thank you so much!"

Ed Hollander, Columbus, OH

I have been using the canes for over a year now and I find that they really help me feel more secure walking in different situations. I’ve used canes before, but the design of this cane makes it stay in touch with the ground longer, which gives me greater stability and allows me to walk upright. I can very much recommend the canes for anyone who has balance problems.  

I need to use a cane to walk longer distances or on unstable ground. My vestibular disorder affects my balance, so my eyes and muscles have had to take over some of the function of keeping me upright. I usually have to focus on the ground in front of me to keep my balance and even then it is hard work for my leg muscles and they often cramp up. This is a cause of fatigue and not great for my posture. I also have oscillopsia, which makes me feel very insecure when walking on uneven ground or in bad light. I find that the Aligned-as-Designed canes really help with all of these problems. 

I use one cane for stability when running errands, but two canes to go on longer walks. I can walk much faster with two canes, and I can feel that long walks are much easier on my muscles too, because they don’t have to do all the work of keeping my balance. Stopping and starting to walk again took a bit of coordination at the beginning, but now I am used to it. After only a few steps I get into a walking rhythm, so I don’t have to think about the canes or coordinating them with the movement of my feet, and it’s much easier to look to the sides and up (which is usually not possible for me without stopping). I notice more things around me and that has really improved my quality of life.

"The Aligned as Designed cane is the cane that will support my client's upright posture and core stability! Finally, a cane that will do more than just balance. Walking with Aligned as Designed cane I immediately felt the support to my entire body. I could feel my core engaging and supporting my spine to be in an upright position. I am highly recommending the cane to my clients to support them as we are working on their ability to walk safely and efficiently. With the support of the Aligned As Designed cane, the work we do in the studio continues when they are outside the studio engaging in their daily routines."

I decided to get two of the canes after talking to Linda, the inventor of the Aligned as Designed Cane, when she mentioned she had a number of people who use two when walking.  The difference walking with two of the canes is absolutely amazing.  I am walking much better, my posture has improved incredibly and I’m walking easier and faster... When walking with a rollator, I could never walk without atrocious posture.  It’s putting the fun back in walking!  The Aligned as Designed Cane is worth its weight in gold, in my opinion.  

Eloise, Toronto, Canada.

"My mother has been using Linda’s Aligned As Designed cane for more than two years and I can’t thank you enough for your creation! It has improved her stability and her posture. How did those other manufacturers expect individuals who are unstable to balance their weight on such a small surface area? With Aligned As Designed it truly is like having a third foot! Thank you so much! Can’t wait to see what else you develop."
