I bought this as a gift for my 88 yo Aunt who was using a standard cane. She LOVES this HurryCane! She immediately began using it on her daily walks and remarked how comfortable it is to use - the right height, the stability, the comfort of the handle AND the blue color (it matches her eyes). She could not wait to use it and flaunt it in the Retirement Village she lives in! Thanks so much for putting my mind at ease for her safety in getting around, out and about!
