Welcome New Sponsor: OMHU

William Wegman for OMHU

Walking is fabulous exercise, and has been shown to provide innumerable health benefits. Especially in upper age groups, those who walk regularly experience greater mobility and strength. “Use it or lose it” the saying goes, and une femme supports whatever helps us to stay mobile, active and engaged with the world.

For those who need assistance or a bit of stability to keep active, OMHU canes and walking sticks provide a high-quality and stylish option. The birchwood handles have invisible rubber stripping for a secure grip, the aluminum shaft provides strong and lightweight support, and the bottom tips are made from hiking boot material for maximum durability. And OMHU canes are available in six stylish colors!

For readers of Une femme d’un certain âge, the folks at OMHU are offering $35 off, just enter OMHUFCA at checkout. If you or anyone you know could benefit from a bit of support to help stay active, please do visit OMHU.

    It’s hard to overestimate the value of an attractive cane. My brother has reluctantly used a cane since his stroke 10 years ago and finally ordered one that he likes and is proud to carry. It’s a big boost to him every day to have a great “accessory”.

    I used their height gauge to work out where mum’s walking stick should sit relative to her hips etc, very helpful.

    I love this company and its products. Working in healthcare I’ve seen how important it is to have attractive mobility assistance. Congratulations on your new sponsor!

    My sister and I bought one for my 93 year old mom last year at the Santa Monica Art Museum gift shop. She’s been resistant to aids, but finally starting using a cane. At first she wouldn’t use the OMHU outside the house because she was so afraid she’d lose it. But now she uses it all the time because she realizes how much more stable it is than the wobbly drugstore canes. Now if we can just get her to use the walker…… (it’s cobalt blue, very stylish…)

    My mother (who falls quite often) could really use one, but she’d never go for it. Very, very stubborn, and seems to be made of some sort of human rubber as she never breaks anything even when she has horrible falls ~ she bounces!

    I love the fact that the design is a delight- not just function but there is joy it its form. Congrats to OMHU on finding such a great person/blog to sponsor!
