You and your normal chair do not get on. You are continually on the move and it permanently stands still. Think for a minute; you like to play golf, hunt, fish and you would also like to sit down for a while. You go to concerts, wait in ticket queues, go for a long walk, go camping and would also like to sit down for a while. You travel, or feel the effects of an injury that hasn't healed, you carry out service work at other workplaces and would like to sit down for a while. There are thousands of reasons for owning a stool that is portable.
But it shouldn't be large, heavy and uncomfortable; it should be just the opposite. It must be able to transform itself from a portable package to a steady and comfy item to sit on. The transformation should be so easy to carry out that a child could manage it.
In addition, it should be nice to look at and not cost too much. It should serve as the perfect present to give to someone you care for. Now you can buy that stool. A genuine Swedish invention, the only one of its kind. Made with telescopic legs of aluminium and a seat of high tech material that has been tested at "Swedish National Testing and Research Institute", managing a load of between 225-425kg [95-935lbs]. The stool carries the English name Walkstool as people all over the world are looking for the same solution to the same problem.
To help you choose the suitable model for you, they give you some general guidelines depending on how you want to use Walkstool and depending on your height and weight. The most notable differences between models is the bigger seat sizes of mesh material and the bigger rubber feet which reduce risk of sinking down when being out in the forest and on wet grass.
All of the above is taken from their own website but I see nothing to disagree with – I have used my stool on three continents now and find it an excellent aid as I have trouble walking far and this is ideal – light enough to toe about but solid enough even for a Fatbirder to rest on… I would not want to use it for hours at a time, but its perfect for periodic perching. I did use it when waiting for a great snipe lek in Poland and after 20 minutes or so I began to get pins and needles in my legs and would have preferred something taller… I wonder if their tallest one would be better for me, I have long legs and anyway would probably find it easier for me to rise from given my arthritic spine? In any event I heartily recommend the product – I wish I could remember who sent it to me to test out and review!
