Yet, it stands on its own, so you can take your hand off the cane and it won't fall over. It also flexes when you walk and due to its triangular shape provides a little more stability than a traditional cane.
The seat cane is a different type of walking assistance device. It has a built-in seat that gives you a place to rest whenever you need it. Seat canes have been very popular with those who are on their feet quite a bit, and whenever taking a breather can help you regain some strength.
