Better than Three-prong and Quad Canes

The 3rd Foot Cane­™­ is designed to redevelop your natural gait, support upright posture, and rehabilitate specific muscle groups used to balance. Striking the ground from heel to toe, just like your feet, the 3rd Foot Cane feels – and looks – natural. 

It's about how it makes you feel

Traditional Canes cause your body more problems than they fix.  The new wave of three pronged canes, quad canes, three-point canes, and 4 prong canes have yet to remedy the underlying issue with the Traditional Cane.  It is unnatural to force your body to lean over and onto the cane handle.

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 cause you to look downward when you walk, making your visual field smaller, cognitive processing speed slower and your core muscles weaker.


The foot of single-point canes, three prong canes and quad canes lose much of their contact as soon as it strikes the ground.

3rd Foot Cane

The 3rd Foot Cane takes weight off of your hip, knee, and ankle joints, transmitting the weight evenly between the cane and your feet.


The 3rd Foot Cane enables you to walk with upright posture and a normal walking gait.

The 3rd Foot Cane is designed to maintain contact with the ground from heel to toe, just like your foot, and engages muscle groups that help you balance.

Single point, three prong, and quad foot canes all cause your body to move in the same way.

If the cane foot is set straight below the cane shaft, these traditional canes force users to maintain their balance by moving their arm away from their body. Leaning onto the cane handle to maintain balance is the source of misalignment and the hunched, lopsided walk we are all familiar with. When the arm if forced to move away from the body to maintain balance, the head and line of sight are drawn downward and towards the ground. When you look downward when you walk, your visual field becomes smaller, cognitive processing speed becomes slower, and your balance suffers. 

Have you ever felt that you needed to shorten your step while walking with a cane?

Have you ever felt that you needed to shorten your step so that you aren't hunched over when walking with a traditional cane? As a traditional cane foot strikes the ground, most of the three-prong foot and quad-cane foot loses contact. The cane foot and the cane itself then become too horizontal. They no longer support upward stability of the body and the alignment of the hip, knee and ankle joints over each other. The step, stride and gait have to become smaller to maintain balance and the feet stop striking the ground from heel to toe.  

Three prong and quad canes stunt core muscle engagement.

When your feet stop striking the ground from heel to toe, the core muscles that help maintain upright posture and the body's vertical stability become weak. Muscle atrophy is serious – continuous neglect from using the single-point, three-prong and quad canes result in a stiff, stooped unnatural gait. The more you use them, the worse it gets.  Reversing the process of misalignment and muscle atrophy is an outstanding benefit of the 3rd Foot Cane. 

The 3rd Foot Cane takes weight off of your hip, knee and ankle joints.

The 3rd Foot Cane takes weight off of your hip, knee and ankle joints and transmits it evenly between the cane's foot and the user's feet.  Your arm stays aligned with the body. Your hand and wrist stay relaxed because the weight of the body is distributed between your feet and the cane's foot – not through your hand.

The 3rd Foot Cane helps maintain vertical alignment and upright posture.

The angled shaft and the offset larger ridged cane foot stays in contact with the ground from heel to toe while maintaining correct vertical alignment.  This results in greater balance and stability of your body and helps to maintain, regain or develop upright posture.  Switching from a single-point, three prong, or quad cane to the 3rd Foot Cane gives you back your sense of mobility.

Linda is a living example of the 3rd Foot Cane's healing process.

She invented and used the 3rd Foot Cane to teach herself how to walk normally again after life altering car accident. Linda's doctors told her she would never walk normally again. She realized that if she kept using traditional canes, her doctors would be right. After inventing and using the 3rd Foot Cane, Linda walks normally again and no longer relies on a cane for everyday life.
