"After much research I bought this cane for my husband who has stroke related balance issues. It securely grips uneven surfaces and is stable even at awkward angles. My husband loves it. I bought one for my mom and now her neighbor wants one... it is lightweight, easily adjustable and looks elegant. I highly recommend this product!"

A physical therapist friend, Randy, was frustrated at seeing his patients move from a single point cane to a quad cane and watching their fall rate skyrocket. We worked with Randy to make a better cane to help people walk better. The FlexTIP is our most recent device that we created to help you Walk Better!
This revolutionary design in walking cane tips mimics the way your ankles work, keeping your cane tip flat on the ground, like your feet, to provide you with the most STABLE and the most COMFORTABLE tip available.
STABILITY - Traditional cane tips have good traction on the ground surface when it is standing straight up, but, once the cane angle tilts slightly, it loses its grip as the surface of the tip pulls away from the ground. The FlexTIP 'flexes' like your ankle, to keep the bottom of the tip in FULL CONTACT with the ground. And, this new design pivots in all directions giving you full flexibility over 360˚
COMFORT - Not only does this new tip bend & flex, the spring absorbs the force of the cane strike on the ground preventing that force from traveling up your hand in to your arm reducing or eliminating the pain often accompanied by repeated cane use.
People buy those awkward, clumsy quad-canes because they 'feel' stable when you lean on one on a flat surface. However, once you begin moving, as in 'walking' with your walking cane, the stability of quad canes goes out the window. Now you have the edge of a tip in contact with the ground with three feet protruding in the air just waiting to catch on something causing you to trip and fall. Our FlexTIP does exactly what you want and need it to do: Maintain full contact with the ground surface while also pivoting and turning AND absorbing the impact of the ground strike. No other cane provides you with the grip, stability and comfort like the FlexTIP Cane - Get one and Walk Better!
