The Switch Sticks folding seat stick is the perfect walking cane with an inbuilt seat. Provides support when walking and a comfortable seat when resting, all with the Switch Sticks contemporary design. Fun yet functional !
Available in three fantastic designs, this walking cane has a small but contoured seat for those times when you need a rest. Simple and easy to use.
Switch Sticks designs are exclusively created for Switch Sticks products, working with contemporary and award winning designers and artists.
They do not believe that a walking stick needs to be boring, but can add to your style and personality. Just as glasses were once limited in choice, but now available from a wide range of labels, they believe that walking sticks can also be beautiful as well as accessible.
The philosophy is to put the ‘fun’ into functional.

Sandi Rigby - After a career as a graphic artist Sandi turned to printmaking and etching, training at the Sydney Gallery School. Sandi’s work is often influenced by a landscape theme. She tries to capture the mood of the subject with colour, texture, pattern and detail, layering plates and working both realistically and conceptually. Sandi’s travels overseas also inspire her work. She was won many awards and has works displayed in galleries throughout Australia. Sandi painted a stick from our Paint Your Own kit to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis. People then started asking if we would replicate the design in our collection and so a unique Australian design ‘Walkabout’ was created.
