SeatStix are a new innovation in walking poles that have patented seat attachments on the top that connect together securely in seconds to provide a very stable seat.
If you’ve ever gone hiking or on long walks, you will know the frustration of lugging a heavy chair around, and if you go to sporting events where lots of walking is required you’ll know how tiring it is and how hard it can be to find somewhere to sit.
A British inventor has come up with a solution: walking poles that connect together and create a stable sitting platform. An upgrade to the traditional Shooting Stick style single leg seat. Not only is the two legged seat much more stable, but it means that walkers that use walking poles are able to take a seat with them without packing any additional kit.
SeatStix has been in development for a few years, and after several iterations and design improvements they are ready for manufacture, so a crowdfunding campaign has been launched on Kickstarter to help fund the first round of production.
– Derrick Green (Inventor)
The idea arose when British Inventor, Derrick Green visited his elderly father, and while enjoying a cup of tea and a chat he noticed a shooting stick in the corner of the room.
As a natural-born inventor, he couldn’t help but pick it up and fiddle with it. But he discovered that the shooting stick left a lot to be desired. Sure, it was lightweight and easy to use, but having only one leg it wobbled around and didn’t exactly offer a relaxing rest.
Derrick himself is a keen hiker who’s completed several of the UK’s best walks including Hadrian’s Wall and the Stour Valley Path using walking poles. It was then he had an aha moment.
Over the next few years, Derrick tried and tested his ideas until he had developed a refined design that gave people a strong, stable and comfortable seat without adding extra pounds to their walking equipment.
…and SeatStix were born.
