EMD112 CONCEPTUAL DESIGN AND CAD
WALKING STICK WITH SEAT AND UMBRELLA

2.0 Abstract

Some people use walking stick to assist them when walking because their leg is not strong enough to support their body weight or they've injured their leg. They will feel tired easily when walking with the assistance of walking stick due to the need of synchronization between their hand which hold the stick and their legs. Therefore, they will need to sit down and rest before they continue walking. The problem arises when they are in the middle of a path where seats can't be found. During a rainy or sunny day, it's hard for them to walk fast to find a shelter to avoid the rain and UV light. Therefore it would be better if the umbrella and walking stick is in the same part which is the user can used it at any time. The design should be in light weight so that it wouldn’t add more burdens to the user and the structure would be strong enough to withstand the weight of a user. The surface of the seat would be large enough for the user and the seat also would be in appropriate height so that the person can seat and stand easily. The seat also should strong and stable to ensure the user safety when using it. A folding chair with the shape of a walking stick after it is folded is suggested which means it has a single vertical member touching the ground after it is folded and the other trusses floating without disturbing the user. The adjustable height is to ensure that people with several of height can use it. The handle with absorber in it is to ensure that user does not feel pain under their armpit where the handle will be put under it and the absorber will absorb the impact and reduce the pain. The mechanism is multifunction which can be used as a long walking stick or short walking stick. The stick can be separated into two where it can be a common walking stick with a hand rest.

3.0 Introduction

Walking stick is used for disable people who have major or minor injuries at their leg. They used it to support their body weight and assist them when walking. Therefore, the idea of design a walking stick with a seat and umbrella is based on the situation of disable people. The walking stick that we design has the combination of seat and umbrella. The seat that we design is light in weight and stable enough to support the user weight. Not just that, we also included an umbrella which is we design it based on original umbrella that already available in market. The umbrella we design it in the stick so that it can be easier to bring and the user can used it at any time. The walking stick that we design is also has the handle which can be used to support user weight at armpit. We also included the hand rest which can be used to hold the stick more comfortably. This stick also has an adjustable height so that people can adjust the height based on their height.

Umbrella that we include in our design is used as the protector to them from UV light or rain. In their situation it is hard for them to walk fast and run if suddenly the rain is fall or the situation is too hot. At least, with the umbrella, it can protect them and they do not need to be rush in looking for a shelter Since that not every people has the same height, we design the adjustable height pin so that the user can adjust it based on their height. The hand rest and handle that we design is to help the user to support their weight when their walk. We design...
