The 3rd Foot Cane

The 3rd Foot Cane foot was designed and Patented to maintain balance without having to lean on or towards a cane handle like a traditional single pt, 3 tip or 4 tip cane.

How To Use The 3rd Foot Cane

The 3rd Foot Cane foot acts like a 3rd Foot. When the back of your foot strikes the ground the back of the cane foot strikes the ground together with it. The weight of your body rolls over the cane foot and your foot together from heel to toe keeping weight off your shoulder, elbow, and wrist. Your arm stays close to your side with your hand relaxed. The angled cane shaft maintains the same angle as your leg when walking supporting your body's natural alignment.

The 3rd Foot Cane foot does not stand up by itself like a cane foot with tips that uses the cane handle that you lean on to maintain balance putting stress on your spine and weight bearing joints. It's a cane with a cane foot that was designed and Patented to maintain balance, upright posture and stability using the cane foot. Helping you stand up by yourself and regain a stable, upright walking gait something traditional single point, 3 tip, 3 prong, 4 tip and quad canes can't do.

The 3rd Foot Cane vs. Three-Prong Canes

3-Prong Canes

Three-prong canes force you to move your arm away from your body and lean onto the cane handle to maintain balance.


Traditional canes keep you head from being aligned and centered over your shoulders when you walk. Causing your head to be aligned in front of your body. Your line of sight to be positioned downward making your visual field smaller and your cognitive processing speed slower. Your step and stride needs to become smaller for you to maintain balance. Your feet stop strike the ground from heel to toe.


The foot of single-point canes, 3 prong, 3 tip and 4 tip canes canes loose much of their contact as soon as it strikes the ground because they act like a peg not a foot.

3rd Foot Cane

The 3rd Foot Cane foot acts like a foot and takes weight off of your hip, knee, and ankle joints, transmitting the weight between the cane foot and your feet to maintain your balance.


The 3rd Foot Cane enables you to walk upright with a normal size step, stride and walking gait.

The cane foot is designed to maintain contact with the ground like a foot. Allowing your feet to strike the ground from heel to toe engaging the core muscles responsible for upright posture, balance and stability.

Single point, 3 tip, 3 prong and 4 tip canes use the cane handle to maintain your balance

Traditional single pt, 3 tip, 3 prong and 4 tip canes force users to maintain balance by extending the arm away from their body and leaning on or towards the cane handle to maintain balance.

When a traditional cane foot strikes the ground the cane shaft becomes more horizontal than vertical putting weight onto your shoulder, elbow and wrist to maintain balance. The cane foot maintains balance like a tip or 3 or 4 tips. Forcing you to extend your arm and the cane away from your body and then lean forward onto the cane handle to maintain balance. The hip, knee and ankle joints stop being aligned over each other and working together to help maintain your body's alignment and stability. Your body loses core balance from the way it's forced to be aligned and moved. Your step, stride and gait have to become smaller and your feet stop striking the ground from heel to toe necessary to engage the core muscles responsible for your upright posture, balance and stability .  

Three prong and quad canes stunt core muscle engagement.

When your step and stride become smaller and your feet stop striking the ground from heel to toe when using a traditional cane, the core muscles that help maintain upright posture, balance, and the body's vertical stability become weak. Single-point, three-prong, 3 tip and 4 tip canes result in a stiff, stooped unnatural gait because of the way they force the body to be continuously misaligned to maintain balance. The more you use them, the worse it gets.  Reversing the process and redeveloping a more stable, balanced walking gait is the reason The 3rd Foot Cane was invented. 

The 3rd Foot Cane foot distributes your weight between the cane foot and your feet

The 3rd Foot Can's angled cane shaft moves with not in front of your body helping maintain your body's natural alignment. Your arm stays aligned with your body. Your hand and wrist stay relaxed because the weight of the body is distributed between your feet and the cane's foot

The 3rd Foot Cane acts like a 3rd Foot that helps maintain the body's natural alignment and upright posture.

The angled shaft and the offset larger ridged cane foot stay in contact with the ground from heel to toe helping maintain the body's vertical alignment and stability.

The 3rd Foot Cane keeps the body Aligned As Designed

When my surgeon told me after two years of surgeries and procedures after the car accident that I would never walk normally or upright again. I told him I wasn't born walking and I wasn't born a Black Belt.

Then I went home and used what I had learned inside the Dojo about maintaining balance and stability and build a cane that would let me and others like me learn how. A cane that would act like a 3rd foot to maintain balance. That would keep my head aligned and centered over my body when walking. That would allow my weight bearing joints to be naturally aligned and stable. A cane that wouldn't cause secondary disability by forcing me to extend my arm and lean onto a cane handle to maintain balance like traditional single point, 3 point, 4 point canes. I knew because of my training inside the Dojo that if I used a cane that maintained the body's natural alignment and allowed the cane foot and my feet to strike the ground together from heel to toe engaging the core muscles responsible for upright posture, core strength, balance and stability that in time, I would regain the ability to walk normally again.
