A new function of stick tip

The tip material is a rubber with adequate firmness and viscosity, and it is designed from the study of walking movements. It is secure a stable hold of the ground at different angles, producing a pleasant walking rhythm.

【Characteristic】
① Grip was designed with its own design philosophy and wiped out the concept so far and made it possible to imagine that even weak grip strength advances forward. With a shell structure that receives hands on a wide surface, you can lightly push the ground and walk. Since it does not grasp the grip strongly, it can be used without putting an extra burden on hands, arms and shoulders.

 

② Magnesium alloy was adopted as the shaft. Magnesium is the lightest among practical metals, and it can be used with confidence because metal is high in comparison with aluminum and iron in a wide field such as specific strength, specific rigidity, dent resistance and heat resistance. The vibration absorption rate was also the highest among practical metals and pursued a feeling of comfort.

③ The original ratchet mechanism adopting the irregular pitch of original analysis according to the distribution of height makes it possible to adjust the height to the user's height compared with a general cane by expansion and contraction. Moreover, it adds a rotation prevention guide with one visible adjustment hole and realizes a beautiful form that is complicated and cumbersome adjustment is functional and simple.

④ Polycarbonate over grip is attached to grip, it can be replaced according to TPO by choosing the color of your choice. Coordination according to individuality will increase affection and will make going out easy and fun.

⑤ The folding function adopts a pull-stop unit that can hold the folded state. There is no turning back even if you remove the frame, and it will not fold back supple and spread in the bag. It is highly safe, even those with weak forces can operate easily and there is no danger of pinching your hands.

⑥ Since the grip of the saddle structure is grounded at two points on a tabletop such as a desk or a cash register, it can be stood on stably.

 

⑦ By fitting the joint parts to the connection part between the rubber tip and the shaft of the cane tip, a sense of unity is born at the feet, realizing a beautiful form. In addition, the cane tip rubber is made with BONLAB original, has moderate hardness and stickiness, soft comfortable feeling and grips the ground more safely.

⑧ Enjoying individuality Coordinating grip color and neutral color development of the shaft is gentle, light and fashionable like a bicycle.

【the purpose】
Medical-related product design is less maturing than other fields, and there are few things that satisfy user's demand. From the viewpoint of universal design, BONLAB creates new value consciousness in the cane industry through the development of high-design products combining functionality and fashionability that satisfy the mind.

 

【background】
It is indispensable for maintaining self walking to suppress nursing care burden. In that sense also, we hope that elderly people and disabled people who are uneasy about their legs are not locked in the house, but by proposing a tool that makes going out fun, we can extend the healthy life as much as possible. Even if you feel uneasy about your legs, there are many examples of muscle weakness from falling due to hesitating to use the cane, difficulty walking, and it is considered effective to use an appropriate wand to reduce fall accidents. There are many cases that refuse to use a cane. The reason for refusing to use a cane comes from the unique net questionnaire and individual visit questionnaire, "It is embarrassing", "I do not want to be seen in the elderly", "There is no cane that matced me" and "Out of style. Based on the "importance of heart satisfaction" derived by inclusive design, we promoted development that made use of the user's voice and thought that we need to change the image of the cane with unprecedented functionality and fashionable design .
