Our new INDESmed walking sticks have been given the royal thumbs up by the suave King Juan Carlos of Spain, who was seen sporting his carbon fiber cane when he recently visited Norway with Queen Sofia, his elegant wife, to attend the joint 80th birthday of King Harald and Queen Sonia.
King Juan Carlos looks dapper in his tuxedo and bow tie, accompanied by Queen Sofia who looked just as stylish in her long elegant dress and golden shoes which were complimented by her pashmina shawl in soft neutral tones. Unfortunately, the weather was not lending itself to the occasion and an umbrella was needed to protect them against the rain, which fortunately did not appear to dampen the occasion.
INDESmed Carbon Fiber Walking Canes
INDESmed carbon fiber canes are ergonomically designed and incredibly lightweight and stylish. INDESmed are a Spanish company, created by a young and enthusiastic team of engineers specialising in bio-engineering and medical devices.

Our two new handy, safety gadgets for walking stick users are very useful for fall prevention.
If you are unsteady on your feet and use a walking stick or cane, it can be too easy to trip up in the dark. A torch light that can be attached to your cane can be a great asset, particularly in the middle of the night when you need to get to the toilet and you don’t want to wake the whole house! Simply clip on the torch light and press the top button when you need to light your way.
DropMeNot Walking Stick / Cane and Crutch Holder
Most walking sticks tend to have the frustrating habit of falling over when you rest them up against something. Retrieving a stick from the floor can be very difficult and dangerous for the user – often resulting in a fall.
Canes that have an inbuilt grip in the handle, like the Sabi canes or the Top & Derby canes, can be safely propped up against a wall, but other canes may need a DropMeNot walking stick holder, a relatively new device, which can be secured to any wall around the home, to hold a walking stick or crutch when it is not needed. The holder can be positioned next to a favourite chair or by the bed, where it will be regularly needed.

If you are passionate about shoes, the Life on Foot exhibition at the Design Museum which runs from 13th May – 1st of November could be right up your street!
Life On Foot is the first exhibition for the much-loved family run Spanish shoe brand Camper. The exhibition explores the journey of traditional shoe making and the influences of contemporary design and technology.
Learn about Camper’s extensive archives, their design studios in Mallorca through to their extensive high-tech manufacturing facilities in the Far East. Camper is now a global brand that occupies contemporary design led retail spaces and has a playful approach to advertising.
The exhibition also delves into the pedestrian’s relationship to the built in environment where you can also discover how wearable technologies and surveillance systems impact on our experience of walking.
Sabi ROAM Sport Cane
To complement the Camper exhibition, the Design Museum invited us to exhibit our eye-catching, and colourful Sabi Roam Canes which are strategically placed around the exhibition. Walking canes are an intrinsic part of pedestrian life and the fun loving design of Sabi Canes marries beautifully with the Camper brand.
Life On Foot runs until the 1st November 2015. Catch it while you can!
Whether it be a wedding, formal dinner or black tie occasion, a cocktail party or simply a stroll in the park, the Sabi ROAM Luxe Cane is an exceedingly handsome and stylish accessory that makes a bold statement.
The Luxe walking cane features a wide, hand-stained Baltic birch wood handle that is reassuring to hold and beautifies with age; the hand stained handle allows the colour and character of the wood to show through.
The single-piece, non-adjustable shaft made of high-strength aluminum; the same grade of aluminum used in bicycle frames. Super-durable and powder-painted, just like a bike, it offers a much more stable alternative to the adjustable walking stick.
The Sabi ROAM Luxe walking cane is now available on our website. You can read more HERE
Folding canes are a great solution for when you need to keep your walking stick to hand but also like to pop it away out of sight when it is not required.
Our new range of women’s folding sticks by Classic Canes are real fashion statements, designed to co-ordinate with many an outfit. Lightweight, attractive and height adjustable, the folding canes can be stowed away discreetly when in a restaurant or on a plane and will fit neatly into your bag or glove box of your car for when you need it.
Multi Tartan folding cane
The traditional derby handle offers excellent support to the hand as it can slip neither forward or back and may be popped over your arm when not in use. The sides of the handle are rounded for comfort and the strong, aluminium shaft folds neatly into four sections.
Floral black folding cane
The adjustable height of these canes make them a safe, stylish, considerate and affordable gift for family and friends.
