The Hurry Cane™: CDC Says Adults Need More Walking
Although a new government study reveals that more American adults are taking up walking as a form of exercise, many have yet to meet the nation’s guidelines for physical activity. The makers of The Hurry Cane™ are encouraging walking among Americ
New York, New York (I-Newswire) September 3, 2012 - Although many may not associate the act of walking with high-impact exercise, many health officials across the United States are encouraging Americans to take up the practice. According to a recent USA Today article, walking is becoming increasingly popular among US adults; it reveals that although walking is a simple activity, it can offer a wide range of benefits. As proponents of health, the makers of The Hurry Cane™ applaud these citizens for increasing their exercise by walking, but note that not every adult may have the ability to achieve full mobility. For the elderly or disabled, even the simple act of walking can prove to be difficult in certain situations. The Hurry Cane™ utilizes an innovative design to improve user’s motions and encourage the impaired to start walking.
The article cites a recent government study that based its findings on interviews with almost 45,500 people in the National Health Interview Surveys. According to the article, “About 62 percent of adults in 2010 said they walked at least once for ten minutes or more in the past seven days, up from 56 percent in 2005. That means about 145 million people walk at least a little either for fun, relaxation, exercise or to get to places, an increase of 15 million people from 2005.” In response to these new findings, CDC director, Thomas Frieden comments, “The basic news today is that physical activity is the wonder drug, and more Americans are making a great first step in getting more physical activity. Walking is the easiest, most accessible way to be more active.”
HurryCane representative, Courtney Hoefener responds to the study, “Although more and more people are taking walking seriously, there's still more work to do. As advocates of mobility, our company is on a mission to get as many people up on their feet as possible.” With a unique pivot design—modeled after the range of motion displayed in humans—The Hurry Cane™ can help individuals take on new terrain and weather environments that they were previously unable to approach with traditional canes. In addition, the product is able to stand freely, allowing the user to step away from the cane and use both hands freely.
The Hurry Cane™ is the latest innovation in mobility solutions for senior citizens and those who have difficulty walking. With a structure similar to the traditional cane, The Hurry Cane™ features a unique pivot-head design that allows for greater movement and flexibility. It also provides a strong base that allows users to perform tasks with both their hands, without having to worry about their cane falling over. With total approval ratings at a reported 98 percent, many consumers are already sharing their success stories after using this innovative product.
