Tiagra Benefits >

HIGH-TECH meets HIGH-ART

Tiagra has gone beyond improving the antiquated cane design. Weʼve updated the grip to make holding a cane easy and widened the base using space age material for incomparable walking support and skid- free security. If your mobility depends on assistive devices, your cane is an implement of balance, functioning like an extra leg. No engineering degree is required to understand the superior stability a wide foundation provides. No building ever stood on a narrow foundation and no person should ever expect a rubber tip to hold up its share of his or her bodyʼs weight. But Tiagraʼs 2 1/4 inch wide base along with its unbreakable graphite shaft and titanium strong “neck”, can hold up to 300 lbs.

Tiagraʼs foam base adapts easily in changing terrains: from Linoleum to Concrete, Parquet to Tile, Slippery Pavement to Marble, from Sand to Ice, from Dirt Trail to Rocky Mountains.

Skid-Proof
Micro Cell
Foam Base

Although people are living longer and relying more on assistive devices, there hasn’t been much innovation in canes. Tiagra’s light weight and wide base combined with a customized wooden grip means it’s more stable than standard canes and much more comfortable.”

-Priscilla Kaszubski, D.O. (Physical Medicine and Rehab-Paterson,NJ)

TRADITIONAL CANE

TIAGRA

HANDLE

HOOK SHAPE
DERBY SHAPE

Grip is off center, placing all body weight on one end of the handle.

T-SHAPE

Grip is centered on a T, distributing body weight evenly over handle, providing better balance and control

"NECK"
CONNECTOR

NO “NECK” DISTINCTION

No change in diameter from Handle to Shaft (continuous 1 inch diameter)

1/4 INCH DIAMETER TITANIUM “NECK”

Narrower than Handle & Shaft diameter
Allows for perfect finger wrap fit.

Titanium is an alloy much stronger and lighter than wood, used in aerospace to build rockets and aircraft.

SHAFT

WOOD

 

 

1 INCH diameter

CARBON GRAPHITE COMPOSITE

Material used in making satellite components, much stronger and lighter than wood

Less than 1/2 INCH diamete
Narrower and lighter

BASE

RUBBER TIP




1/2 - 1 INCH
diameter (NARROW)

WEARS OUT QUICKLY


Makes hard contact with the ground




PRONE TO SLIPPING

CYLINDRICAL MICRO CELL FOAM

Dense, lightweight material used as
sealant in rockets

2 1/4 INCHES diameter (WIDE)

LASTS 15 X LONGER THAN RUBBER
Lighter than rubber.

Makes soft contact with the ground,
adjusting to terrain with each step
Absorbs shock, relieving stress to wrist,
shoulder and back

SKID-PROOF on slick surfaces

Micro Cell foam is REMOVABLE,
exposing a tip - converting Tiagra Cane
into a walking stick and upon request, a
sharper, also removable, cane tip is
available for icy/snowy climates.

WEIGHT

14 - 24 OUNCES

10 OUNCES

Makes cane easy to carry

CENTER OF
GRAVITY

HIGH Center of Gravity

Closer to Handle

LOW Center of Gravity

Closer to Base, which allows more mass to contact the ground requiring less energy to swing the cane while walking.

Balanced like a fine golf club

“It’s the most innovative and highly stabilizing cane design I have ever seen.”

- Dr. Howard P. Blum (Chiropractor - Stamford, CT)

We designed our cane so it is as comforting for walking as your chair or bed is for resting. Weʼve not only improved and updated the traditional cane, weʼve been improving on our own design for over 11 years.

George is currently working on a Tiagra Derby Cane and a Golfing Cane that incorporates an actual golf ball... after all, our cane is balanced like a fine golf club and our shaft is made of the same material. Weʼre also excited about a Home Cane Attachment and a Beach Cane Attachment he has created. For a sneak preview, go to our Art Gallery section where you can see the history and evolution of Tiagraʼs past and future designs.

“Tiagra is a cane for the new millennium.”

-Gabriel P. Lu, M.D., (Licensed Acupuncturist - Scarsdale, NY)
