‘quick fold cane’ by michael graves design 

 

Michael Graves Design introduces the ‘Quick Fold Cane’, a height-adjustable walking stick fitted with a fast and highly compact folding mechanism. Both lightweight (1lbs) and sturdy, the aluminum-lined product is available in four different colors (blue, green, black, and earthy brown). It comes with two separate tips that offer the choice between ‘a self-standing or an ultra-slim profile’. The practice notes: ‘When using the X-Tip, the ‘Quick Fold cane’ can stand on its own (on smooth level surfaces), so you free up your arms and hands when you need them.’

simple and fast folding mechanism 

 

The ‘Quick Fold Cane’ collapses into three different sections and is kept compact thanks to internal magnets holding it together. To unfold the stick, users simply need to pull these sections apart and straighten the stick until the hinges retract into the shaft. Folding it back requires pulling both ends outwards until the hinges are exposed, before breaking it down into sections again.

 

Style-wise, Michael Graves Design (see more here) fitted the product with a unique handle that can rest comfortably on users’ arms or hook steadily onto any edge for a hands-free experience.

adjustable to the user’s height

 

As mentioned, the cane can adjust to height, making it accessible to a wide pool of users: ‘To set the perfect height for you, press and hold the yellow button to easily slide the lower segment in or out of the upper segment,’ the team comments. The cane’s length will vary depending on whether one is barefoot or wearing shoes. this height-adjustable walking cane folds up in no time
