Who is your idea designed for and how does it enable older adults to live their best possible life by preventing falls?

This idea is designed for early-aged seniors that can still benefit from consistent daily exercise that slows that aging process and symptoms. The telescoping cane provides an option for intermediate-need for those who may not feel comfortable with their new cane or don't need it all the time.

We are trying to solve the problem of seniors not wanting to carry canes because they may not necessarily need to use it the whole day, but when they need to. This prevents the complete non-use of a cane as now they can easily carry it anywhere in their pocket.
