How To Use The 3rd Foot Cane
The 3rd Foot Cane-Posture Balance & Stability
The 3rd Foot Cane moves next to the outside of your body and maintains your upright posture, balance and stability without extending your arm and leaning on a cane handle like a traditional cane to maintain balance.
The 3rd Foot Cane's offset cane foot has the same proportions as your foot that maintains balance from the back of the cane foot to the front of the cane foot with your arm next to your side.
Your head stays aligned and positioned over your body. The angled cane shaft maintains the same angle as your leg when walking keeping weight off your wrist and shoulder and helping maintain your upright posture and core balance.
To maintain balance when using a traditional single pt, 3 tip, 3 prong and 4 tip cane you have to extend your arm away from your body and lean on or towards the cane handle. Your head stops being aligned and centered over your body when walking. Your spine can't maintain alignment. You have to shorten the size of your step, stride, and gait and you end up looking downward when you walk. If you walk looking down your core muscles that maintain your body's balance and stability become weaker with each step you take. Your body has less balance and less stability.
You are the way you walk. If you walk upright with your head centered between your shoulders, with your arm close to your side you can maintain or regain a normal size step, stride and walking gait and your core muscles responsible for upright posture, balance, and stability engage and become stronger because you're moving your body the way it was designed to move.
The only time you should look down when walking is when you are on the stairs or making a transition from one surface height to another.
Stability is #1
Most canes offer a tip for support. Some offer 3 or 4 tips for you to balance on. The Aligned As Designed Cane foot has the same proportions as your foot. It is designed to maintain balance stability and upright posture from the back of the cane foot when walking.
A new angle for better posture
The offset cane foot and the cane shaft angle maintains the same angle as your leg and foot when walking helping maintain your upright posture, balance, and stability and keeping your center of gravity over your feet.
The bottom of the cane foot has SureGrip support Technology that has been carefully shaped to help maintain your body's balance, stability and alignment when walking on indoor and outdoor surfaces.
The contact area of the cane foot is contoured to provide linear support up through the shoulders.
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 the body aligned and stable 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 during the walking cycle. As you move forward, the cane foot moves with you and next to the outside of your leg like a 3rd Foot that provides a second point of contact that maintains your upright posture, stability and balance.
Most people would rather put their hand on the wall when walking at home then use a traditional single point, 3 tip or 4 tip cane. When you put your hand on the wall your arm stays close to your side. You're able to keep your head up and you can use your foot from back to front giving your body more stability and core balance.
The 3rd foot Cane maintains your core balance by acting like a 3rd Foot that moves next to the outside of your body with your arm next to your side.
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. A 3 tip, 4 tip or prong cane weights between 18 and 22 ounces. A typical quad cane can weight 28 ounces or more. They all force the arm and the cane foot to extend away from the body and use the cane handle to maintain balance because the cane feet act like a tip or tips and don't move or maintain contact with the ground like a foot. The Aligned as Designed Cane weighs 20 ounces. The cane foot moves, pivots and maintains contact with the ground like a foot maintaining the body's balance, stability, and upright posture when walking.
Full range of heights in one cane
Height adjustment at either the top or bottom ends allows easier adjustments, and can be made small enough to fit in the overhead compartment!
The Aligned As Designed Cane's patented three-piece shaft design allows a generous 17-inches of height adjustment. Height adjustable up to 39" for adults. It's perfect for younger users and growing teens. The cane cane be compacted down to 21-inches to fit in backpacks. It's also small enough to fit within airline carry-on size and overhead bins so you can keep it with you on the plane. No longer will you need to leave your cane with the flight attendant!
The height can be adjusted at the top and at the bottom, making it easier to adjust the cane height when climbing or descending stairs, or getting up from a chair.
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.
