Flex

Flex is a cane that seeks to redefine mobility for the elderly through the notion of dynamic walking.

It applies an elastic shoe design that blossoms on contact with the ground. This expansion of the cane’s base increases surface contact, making it more stable and providing a reliable anchor for the next step. Meanwhile, an internal spring mechanism gives additional cushioning and allows the cane’s blossoming base to return to a streamlined profile while off the ground.
