Assistive Device Invented for Mobility and Retrieving Objects (LAX-845)

Share Article

InventHelp, founded in 1984 in Pittsburgh, is attempting to submit this idea, the Razen Cane, to applicable companies for their consideration.

People who have difficulty walking find canes quite helpful. However, they also need help retrieving things from the floor or in high places. Until now, they needed to have both a cane and a grasping device on hand. Fortunately, inventors from Rosamond, Calif., have found a way to solve both problems with one device.

They developed RAZEN CANE to combine the functionality of a walking cane with an assistive device for picking up objects. As such, it provides all the stability of conventional canes and eliminates the need for a separate device for picking up objects. At the same time, it is safe, practical and easy to use. Other appealing features are convenience, effectiveness and an affordable price. This dual-function invention is also lightweight, sturdy and versatile. In addition, its simple design minimizes production costs.

The inventors’ personal experience inspired the idea. “We invented this because we are both cane users,” one of them said, “and when we drop something, we have to use a separate grab-it device to pick it up.”

The original design was submitted to the Los Angeles office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
