Portland, OR (PRWEB) March 31, 2010
Pat Heyward Canes, a new provider of fashion forward walking canes, launches today and unveils a collection of over 36 exclusive designer patterns for men and women ranging from classic to whimsical. Made from performance materials, the canes can withstand up to 300 pounds while remaining uniquely lightweight and silent.
A fashionable alternative to the traditional walking cane, each component of Pat Heyward Canes have been carefully developed and tested to address three essential components: a comfortable handle, a durable lightweight tapered shaft and a fashion presence that eliminates the stigma attached to carrying a cane.
“We are transforming the traditional walking cane into a fashion accessory,” said Tami Barnard, president of Pat Heyward Canes. “We want people to feel good and look great using our canes. This means designing walking canes that offer a variety of stylish patterns along with the practical functionality people need.”
The canes are a great gift idea for fashionable seniors, stylish baby boomers nearing their senior years, people with chronic mobility issues or those recovering from a sports injury. Women will like the array of vibrant patterns to go with their favorite hand bags and men will appreciate the stylish tweeds and pinstripe patterns.

About Pat Heyward Canes
Pat Heyward, the visionary founder of Pat Heyward Canes, is intimately aware of what makes an ideal walking cane. She has used a walking cane for twenty years as a mobility aid due to multiple sclerosis. Also a former retail executive from a top nationwide brand, Heyward saw an opportunity to overcome what she perceived to be three essential challenges in the retail cane industry—a comfortable handle, a durable lightweight shaft and a fashion presence that would eliminate any stigma associated with using a cane. Today Pat Heyward Canes offers a diverse collection of walking canes that brings together both fashion and functionality. Now, using a walking cane never felt so good or looked so great.
In concert with her vow to give back to the community, the company donates 20% of its proceeds to movement disorder research and development. Pat Heyward Canes are manufactured and hand cut in the Northwest.
