Tripod Sitting

Since having both knees replaced, I have dealt with difficulties walking and balancing in many different ways. First of all, I had to give up my Silver Sneakers classes as I could no long handle the physical effort required. Therefore, I decided to begin an alternative exercising regimen–riding the bike at a gym and walking in the neighborhood. Having had difficulty not tripping on the gym treadmill, the bike-riding proved to be a satisfying method for exercising, especially since I could read a paperback novel while pedaling. Still one of my biggest challenges was standing in place where I felt the most fatigue and pain. My partner, as you know, loves to travel and brings me along with him on exotic trips. When we are touring or shopping, I tire easily, especially when standing too long. I’m forever looking for a seat. Well, I have found an answer, the walking cane/tripod seat combination. Try it out; it works.
