The Stick Stay

an adhesive walking stick holder to stop them falling on the floor.

Have you noticed how walking sticks and grabbers always end up on the floor ?

Now there is a solution.

Caroline Brown is the proud inventor of the ‘stick stay’ a handy little gadget that fixes to the side of chairs and other furniture to hold walking sticks in place. This mean the stick is to hand when needed and not on the floor out of reach. It also means the stick is not a trip hazzard likely to cause a fall.

Caroline started her nursing career at St.Thomas’ Hospital in London, then moved on to The Radcliffe Infirmary in Oxford before returning to London to further qualify as a Sick Children’s nurse at Great Ormond Street.

While working in the community in and around the Dorset villages, she became aware of the many conditions affecting her patients and what caused them difficulties and often anxiety of their impending loss of independence.

So in 2008
The Huntingford Company was set up to address challenges faced everyday by many people at home, by producing easy to use, attractive and affordable devices to enable their safer and more enjoyable independent living.

Here is a short but interesting video explaining  more about the stick stay and the problems they address for any stick user.

Unfortunately the minimum order is for four (£19.00) but if you would like to share an order half and half with me then please contact me again as I need some for people too.
