The 3rd Foot Cane Foot
How Is The 3rd Foot Cane Different From Other Canes
The 3rd Foot Cane's Patented Innovative cane foot is designed to maintain balance and reproduce the biomechanics of the human foot. Allowing you to drive your body the way you drive your car, with your head upright and your line of sight towards the ground in the distance of the direction you’re moving to maximize your posture, balance and stability while keeping weight off your wrist and shoulder. Adjust the cane to leg height or higher or you will not feel stable and use the cane with your arm next to your side like in the How To & Customer videos. This is not a traditional cane that you adjust to wrist height, extend in front to your body and uses the cane handle to maintain balance.
When you walk looking down your head becomes positioned in front of the rest of your body. You have to shorten your step and stride to maintain balance and you put too much weight on the front of your hips, knees and foot making you less stable. You can glance down at the ground if you need to without dropping your head down. An upright walking gait allows you to see anything in your path and have enough time to avoid it or walk around it. It also helps maintain the natural curvature of your spine allowing your core muscles between your neck and waist and between your shoulders to engage. The only time you should look down when walking is when you’re on the stairs, in the dark or on a wet, slippery surface or making a transition from one surface height to another. The 3rd Foot Cane is the first cane designed and Patented to maintain alignment and regain and help develop upright posture, balance and stability when walking. The 3rd foot Cane foot has the same proportions as the foot. Its not a tip or 3 or 4 tips that you balance your weight on by extending your arm and leaning on a cane handle to maintain. The 3rd Foot Cane foot maintains balance from the back of the cane foot to the front of the cane foot with your arm next to your side and your head upright.
Continued use of the 3rd Foot cane helps develop an upright, stable walking gait by using the cane foot to help maintain the body's alignment, balance and stability. Your head stays aligned and centered over your body because the cane foot maintains balance like a foot. Helping regain and maintain a heel to toe walking gait and engaging the core muscles that engage when you walk with your head upright and your feet contacting the ground from heel to toe.
Continued use of traditional canes with a tip or tips results in a stiff, stooped unnatural walking gait because of the way your body is continually forced to lean and be aligned and moved to maintain balance.
Watch the Customer videos and read the Customer Reviews to see the difference for yourself.
Traditional single pt, 3 tip, 3 prong and 4 tip cane feet are not proportioned to maintain balance like a foot or to stabilize your weight on the tip or tips when walking. To maintain balance you have to extend your arm away from your body and lean on or towards the cane handle.
When you lean to one side to maintain balance your head stops being aligned and centered over your body. Your shoulders stop being aligned over your hips and your weight bearing joints stop being able to balance, load and unload the weight of your body over and on your feet. You have to shorten your step, stride and gait to maintain balance or you'll fall and your feet stop contacting the ground from heel to toe and engaging your core muscles that maintain or help regain an upright stable walking gait.
You look older and feel older because when you lean on or towards the cane handle to maintain balance your spine is unable to maintain its natural alignment and engage your core muscles. More of your weight becomes carried on one side of your body. Your weight bearing joints are designed to work together in pairs to evenly balance load and unload the weight of your body over and on your feet to engage your core muscles. The longer you walk bent to one side or forward onto a cane handle to maintain balance the more bent over and unstable you become.
You are the way you walk. If you walk with your head upright and aligned and centered over your body with your arms close to your side and your feet contacting the ground from heel to toe you're able to evenly load and unload your weight bearing joint and engage your core muscles. Allowing you to move your body the way it was designed to engage your core muscles and get stronger and walk longer.

Stability is #1
The 3rd Foot Cane foot is designed to maintain balance and stability like a foot. The cane shaft moves on the outside of your leg with your arm next to your side helping maintain your balance, stability and natural alignment
A new angle for better posture
The angled cane shaft maintains the same angle as your leg when walking keeping your center of gravity over your feet
The bottom of the cane foot is designed with SureGrip support Technology that has been carefully shaped to help maintain balance and stability when walking on indoor and outdoor surfaces.
The contact area of the cane foot is contoured and proportioned to stabilize like a foot and provide linear support up through your shoulders when walking
Patented Length Ratios Provide a Comfortable Gait
The 3rd Foot Cane's angled shaft and carefully tuned lengths in front of and behind the cane shaft helps keep you stable and upright when walking forward, backward and on the stairs.
The line-of-support running from the ground contact point up through the body is constantly changing. Moving with your body to help maintain balance, upright posture and stability.
As you move forward, the cane foot moves next to the outside of your leg like a 3rd Foot.
At just over 20 ounces, it's easy to use and carry.
The foot of the Aligned As Designed Cane has been engineered as a hollow reinforced structure, which allows a generous landing area without the associated weight of traditional quad canes.
A standard single point cane weighs about 15 ounces. The 3 tip, 4 tip and prong canes weights between 18 and 22 ounces. A typical quad cane can weight 28 ounces. None of them maintain balance on the front of the cane foot. All of them force the arm and the cane foot to be extended away from the body and use the cane handle to maintain balance. They continuously misalign and force the body to move in ways that it was never designed for to maintain, regain or develop an upright stable walking gait.
Full range of heights in one cane
The Aligned As Designed Cane's patented three-piece shaft design allows a generous height adjustment. Height adjustable from 29"to 39" or for people 4' 11" to 6' 4".
The height can be adjusted when climbing or descending stairs, or sitting down or getting up.
A durable core with a resilient cover provides a silent yet confident grip.
The unique and patented SureGrip™ foot and handle are a two-part construction of a rigid core with a resilient over-molded rubber. The generous rubber sleeve is made of a soft yet durable synthetic rubber built to withstand the rigors of daily use. Treads defined in the bottom of the foot help push away fluids for a more secure grip on wet surfaces.
