The Dynamo Story
Dynamo was founded by William Scott in 2016 in South Florida to help solve the need for functional, but most importantly safe, mobility aids. Mr. Scott personally suffered a severe leg injury while practicing for the US Olympic Tae-Kwon-Do Trials in the 80s and endured over 1,000 days on wheelchairs, crutches, and canes—then even suffered a re-injury on a set of standard crutches. He understood the need for safe mobility devices after recognizing many issues with functionality and safety. Mr. Scott got to work designing and planning the Dynamo line. He wanted to make sure what we were designing was high-quality and comfortable as well as safe. It took years in the development stage and hundreds of prototypes to get it right. With the help of our medical advisory board of over 50 Physicians (from the Fields of Sports Medicine, Podiatry, and Orthopedics) we were able to design exactly what this industry needed: safe, high-quality, functional mobility aids. Dynamo is bringing to the market redesigned world-class walking canes, crutches, and walking sticks to help our users regain their mobility and confidence by incorporating science-based designs. Our quality products are comfortable and built to last. The Dynamo Cyclone Cane, Swing Cane, Prime Stick, and Sport Swings are all adjustable and designed to get you moving again.
About our Technology
Our Cyclone tip has advanced articulating grip technology that flexes for more surface contact. The Cyclone tip is larger than standard cane tips to remain in contact with the ground for greater grip when moving. It also has grooves in it to channel out water, much like all-terrain tires, to keep you safe from slips. It works on smooth surfaces like tile and hardwood and on uneven surfaces like sand, gravel, grass, and carpets.
V-Tech grip is our palm down grip with two built in springs. It has multiple benefits to our users. The larger grip keeps body weight distributed across the larger surface area. This reduces the pressure on your hand to hold your device. The V-Tech keeps the grip in the palm of your hand instead of your fingers. This reduces the pressure on your wrist and hands and alleviates the hand and wrist pain you feel from holding small handles on traditional canes.
About our Design
Our modern walking canes, crutches, and walking sticks are all designed with ergonomics and safety in mind. The bend in the walking canes is what we call the crossbow design. The 12-degree bend balances the walking cane when you walk. This neat design allows for a center of balance where you can safely put your weight on one of our walking canes and it won’t slip out from under you. Mr. Scott knows how it feels to walk with a product that can slip out from under you and it was his goal to eliminate that worry. Walking with your Dynamo cane gives the support needed for safety and stability. The Dynamo mobility aid lineup is made of a super strong lightweight aluminum material with a beautiful matte anodized finish. Our devices are rattle-proof, ding resistant, water-proof, rust-proof, and all-terrain. You can take your mobility device anywhere!
