This is another product that I don’t have personally but that comes highly recommended by Fred, the husband of a dear friend. It is his Travelon Walking Seat & Cane.
Over the years Fred and his wife have traveled extensively and they always looked forward to visiting the famous museums in cities where they stayed. In the past few years however it seemed like their museum days were over since the arthritis in Fred’s feet and knees really limited his ability to walk very far and he didn’t relish being pushed in a wheelchair.
No wonder he was excited to tell me about his new “toy”. He and Janet, his wife, live about 60 miles outside of New York City and they had just enjoyed a weekend in that great city. The highlight of their visit was a trip to the Museum of Modern Art which would have been an impossibility for him without his walking seat and cane.
As many of you know MOMA is one of the largest museums in the world and it entails a lot of walking. Fred was thrilled to find that he didn’t need to check his cane when he entered and it enabled him to walk as well as to sit and rest whenever needed.
The Travelon Walking Seat & Cane is just like the name implies. It is a very sturdy cane when needed but is made of lightweight aluminum so that Fred can actually hook it over his shoulder when he needs neither a cane or a seat and it will support up to 250 lbs. so this is a perfect fit for him.
So, for any of you who are limited in your ability to walk I hope this will give you a new lease on life. It’s certainly working for Fred !
