Lightweight, strong, sturdy and stable
Stands by itself on most surfaces
Helps getting up from chair, sofa, toilet
Fits in most cars between the front seat and the door
Use the Rock Steady Cane like a conventional cane, pick it up and move with each step. Use the Rock Steady Cane in a rocking motion for more speed, yet great stability. Use two RSCs for greater stability, one in each hand - much faster than using a walker. Use it like a conventional walker in front of you.
The RSC has a very large footprint - over 100 square inches for amazing stability - and is sturdy on most uneven surfaces such as textured carpets, lawns, terrazzo tiles, etc.
The Rock Steady Cane has a large, foam covered, tactile feel handle for great comfort of the user.
The Rock Steady Cane takes up little space. The feet can be easily folded inward to fit into most tight spaces. The Rock Steady Cane easily tucks between the vehicle seat and the door of most vehicles without folding. Just tuck the feet into the foot well of the vehicle.
The Rock Steady Cane can help the user get in and out of vehicles, or out of chairs or out of bed or off the toilet.
After having a knee replacement, I got a very bad infection, that caused the Dr to surgically remove my knee, and place me on antibiotics for a 5 month period. During most of that time, I used a heavy duty walker to get around. My walker is heavy and I had to always bring it in the car with me-so lifting it, in and out of the car began to be difficult for me. As I started feeling better, but still without a knee, I wanted an easier solution to my problem of how to go to the store, or a restaurant, without the difficulty of the heavy walker. A friend introduced me to the Rock Steady Cane, what a life-saver it has been for me. I'm now able to walk short distances, with my Rock Steady Cane, and it is so light and easy to just put in the car with me. A normal cane would not make it possible for me to get around, as they are just not steady enough for my needs. I've had so many people stop me and ask me how they can get one too. I love it because it's light-weight, easy to put beside me in the car, but stable enough for me to feel safe. So happy with my new Rock Steady Cane.
When I had my first hip replacement, they gave me a walker. I put so much weight (about 200 lbs) on it that the plastic wheels on it completely ruined the hardwood floors in my house. When my second hip was replaced I used the Rock Steady Cane. It gave me enough support. At first I used it with two hands in front of me with all of my weight. The four rubber feet were great at protecting our wood floors. Several things I liked about the Rock Steady Cane: First, when I no longer needed as much support I just used it like a cane on the side opposite the new hip like I would use a normal one point cane, but with more stability. Second, I found that when walking down a slope I could hold onto one top corner of the wide handle and it gave me a little more reach in front of me by using the advantage of the diagonal being longer than straight down. Third, it didn't damage the wood floors in my house. Finally I think the thing that I found most helpful was using it when going somewhere in the car. I simply put the feet of the Rock Steady Cane in the foot well and stuck the handle beside the seat between me and the door. I would set it outside before I even started to get out of the car. If I was parked on a hill, it would hold my door open while I got out. I no longer had to scoot along the car trying to use both hands for support to get to the back seat for a walker and then lean on the car while I unfolded the awkward walker. The Rock Steady Cane has been a Godsend in my life!
The Rock Steady Cane has made such a significant difference in my mobility. A traumatic accident caused significant damage to both of my legs and the eminent amputation of my left leg. I have used many mobility devices. Crutches seemed to be my best option until I started using the Rock Steady Cane. I am now able to walk with much more stability. Where I needed two crutches before, now I only need one Rock Steady Cane. It gives me the balance and stability I don't get from the crutch. I have a free hand to do household tasks, or carry groceries from the car and the Rock Steady Cane is also very versatile. I can use it to walk on uneven ground safely. I also like the convenience of the smaller size. It fits easily into my car, or between my bed and night stand. When I get tired while walking, the cane can be turned sideways and used to support my weight so that I can rest. I am much more mobile and feel significantly safer while using the Rock Steady Cane.
My mother just had her second hip replacement when we got the Rock Steady Cane for assistance in her recovery. The cane was fabulous as a stabilizer getting her up and down from bed and/or chair, or assistance in walking or physical therapy. The cane was far more stable than other canes used previously and less cumbersome than a full walker. We highly recommend the cane to anyone in these circumstances or others.
I like that it is wider at the top than conventional canes. The bar you hold onto allows you to hold on with both hands when you need extra support. I also like it because it is more stable than my other canes. The cross bar that is underneath the one you hold on to is handy for me because I fold my clothes over it so that when I take it into the bathroom to take a shower, my clean clothes are right there within reach.
