 Full Description: 
The portable EZ-Step is a "box" that is attached to the bottom of a cane, that reduces stair height by about 1/2. A person will only be climbing or descending a stairway 3 1/2" at a time as opposed to the standard of about 7 to 7 1/2". It reduces muscle activity by approximately 60%. It also reduces the angle of the knee and hip. All this reduces stress on those joints. It can also be used to go up and down curbs, in and out of vehicles as well as in and out of bathtubs. When the ez-step is not being used as a stair climbing device, it can be used as a quad (stability) cane by turning it 180 degrees. The handle is ergonomically designed to fit a person's hand and so is very comfortable. It is very sturdy, yet lightweight. It weighs only 1.8 pounds and can support over 500 lbs. A video located on our website www.ez-step.com shows the portable ez-step in use. The Portable EZ-Step is made of duable ABS plastic.
