Different Type of Cane
Purchased the cane when it was the Showstopper. Thought it would be great for getting out of chair. Does not work too well if you are trying to get out of a recliner; must be a regular average height chair. The light works well if you have to use it at night to get out of bed.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

SO THANKFUL FOR THIS CANE
from Pickering, Ontario
I am partially disabled and use a cane in my home and for short walks. I have chronic injuries and have to use a walker and then a scooter or wheelchair. This cane is wonderful. I have chronic neck problems from surgery due to an auto accident. Canes have been painful for me. But not anymore. Thank you so to The Shopping Channel and the Doctor and his partner who invented this cane. I have a lot less pain when getting up and down from sitting, and walking is easier too. Please buy this cane if you have chronic pain. You won't be sorry.

The cane itself is very strong and has become my link to freedom, especially during this last spell of snow and ice. And the light would be a great idea if it worked. Unfortunately, it is poorly designed. It needs an on/off switch instead of just turning the light housing. The light will turn itself on when unwanted and then not work when you do want it. I'm keeping the cane because it helps me get around, but don't buy it for the light because you'll be very disappointed. Hopefully, the company making them will recognize the design flaw and make the very simple modifications necessary to make the light work, and then send a new one to those of us who bought the one that doesn't work. That would make this cane exceptional.

Purchased two of these one for my brother (who has MS) and the other for me. Great product however the light on both canes are not working (part missing?), so disappointed! We are returning them for exchange. Hope no one else have a problem with getting the light to work.

First Impression was the Wrong Impressio
from Pincourt, Québec
When I saw the picture of the cane my initial reaction was "this is a gimmick". Well, I convinced myself to try it and now I am most happy to be gimmicky! The second handle is amazingly useful. I have arthritic knees and getting up or down from a chair is [I should say was] very difficult. With the Apallo Cane it is a relative snap! Great idea - very practical! My only negative comment is that within a week or two I had to replace both rubber tips on the bottom of the canes. The metal tube literally cut through the rubber and exposed the sharp edges to our new laminate floor. Solution was very simple, I whipped off the bottoms of a couple of old canes that had metal inserts [just a washer-like piece of metal and the problem was solved. I would certainly recommend this to anyone who truly needs canes due to knee flexibility problems!
An absolute MUST if you need a cane!!
Purchased this as a gift for my mother and it has relieved the pain in her shoulder that she was expeiencing from use of a regular cane. The two handle lift system design of the Apallo cane is the difference! The design is brilliant and the light feature is an added bonus!! Best gift you can give to someone in need!

The lift assist handle is genius! There have been times when it was extremely hard to stand up, so when I saw this cane I wanted to try it. I am very glad I did. It is worth the price for this feature alone. The one drawback is that this cane will not hook over the edge of a table or chair. I find that using the wrist strap for this solves the problem.
This cane is an absolutely wonderful product. It is so useful with the second handle to assist in getting up out of any seat, even low ones; then you can convert to the higher level.
Why didn't someone think of this sooner?
Purchased this for my husband when it was a daily Showstopper item. He loves it, especially the second handle that allows him to hoist himself up when sitting. The light on the handle is also very useful when looking for something in a dark area such as a movie theatre. We would highly recommend this for anyone who must use a cane.
