In today’s world the online shopping market seems infinite! With so many options available and so many different features, how do you know that you’re getting what’s best for you? We measured our Original Stick Chair against other popular cane seat styles! See how our product stands up to the others.
We believe The Original Stick Chair to be the leader when selecting the most practical, portable walking stick chair for your needs. At 1.5 lbs and 14” long, it is the lightest and most collapsible model for carrying and will support an average of 50lbs more than its competition! Its sleek, monopod design makes it more practical for walking or sitting than any tripod cane chair. With its unique height adjustment features, The Original Stick Chair provides you with the visual advantage of standing with the comfort of sitting.
Cane/seat combination tripods are produced by many other companies. Their hard plastic seats and handles make them cold and uncomfortable to sit on in cooler temperatures, and slippery when they get wet in the rain. The extra legs on the tripods make them much heavier and clunkier to carry and pack than The Original Stick Chair and not nearly as collapsible. Tripod seats only support an average weight of 220- 250 lbs.
UNEVEN CONTACT POINTS
Most Tripod Walking Cane Chairs function adequately as chairs, however are less practical when used for support as a cane. When tripod legs are folded together, they do not function as a true tripod cane with three even contact points. Instead, the folded legs bunch up and they may only work well on flat, unfinished surfaces, and can prove dangerous on polished floors.
Tripod canes that flatten down to one contact point, can be equally as impractical, with the remaining legs stuck out at odd angles that can become caught on or entangled in things.
LACK OF HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT FEATURES
Many users struggle with the lack of features and accessories on tripod-style portable walking chairs. Very few models feature height adjustments, which can prove a disadvantage to taller users. Sitting too low to the ground also makes it difficult to get back up if you’ve have been sitting for a long period of time and it can cause discomfort. The Original Stick Chair is the only chair that features additional accessories including the rubber tip, as well as a neoprene cushion handle cover that doubles as a seat cushion. In addition to the five adjustable height positions, the Original Stick Chair comes in a petite size for users 5’3 and under.
TRIPOD CHAIRS (FABRIC SEATS)
Portable walking chairs featuring canvas seats are also produced by many of our competitors. These products operate with a “one-size-fits-all” approach and do not offer height setting adjustments. They have the same problem of being too heavy to use as a cane as other cane chairs with hard plastic seats. On average, fabric seated cane chairs can support a maximum of 225- 250 lbs, much less than the Original Stick Chair.
If everyone’s mobility needs are different, why only offer customers a “one-size-fits-all” model? The Original Stick Chairs is lighter and stronger than the competition. With The Original Stick Chair, you can adjust your seat height, making it comfortable for long periods of sitting. You won’t find anything that folds down as small and is as easy to travel with. Tripod cane chairs work well on only one type of terrain, but the Original Stick Chair is truly multipurpose, suitable for polished floors and hiking trails!
The Original Stick Chair is the best possible value for your money and it fits the needs that are as unique as you are!
