Figure 1

A weight-support feedback cane (WSFC). The WSFC measures cane dependence (degree of weight support loaded on the cane (kg)) during walking. Measurement of the degree of weight support occurs through a load cell located inside the bottom of the cane handle. The degree of weight support is displayed in real time on the cane handle’s top display.
