    Ever feel the need to sit down while shopping or traveling or standing in line somewhere?

    The "Drive Medical Folding Lightweight Cane with Sling Style Seat" might just make your life a whole lot easier. It has for a friend of mine with ME/CFS/POTS who takes it anywhere she might need to take a sit break.

    With it's hollow aluminum frame, this little folding chair weight clocks in at just 2.5 lbs. It can be used as a seat or a cane or as two-handed way to steady yourself when you're standing. It holds up to 250 lbs.

    From the Amazon Reviews:

    Warning - it sparks interest. I've seen a woman plop the chair down in a line at Costco and with minutes have people coming over to ask her about it.

    One note - the Amazon ad shows someone sitting on it side-saddle and the manufacturer warns against sitting on it straight on but the person I know uses it only that way and it's much more comfortable that way.

    Sling-style Seat - At only $24.95 at Amazon.com it's surprisingly cheap. Check it out at Amazon.com here.

    Drive Medical Deluxe Folding Cane Seat - Drive Medical also produces a three-legged folding chair that's a bit lighter. My friend likes the two legged chair better since she doesn't have to straddle it, but some might prefer this one. Just $25. Check out the three-legged chair here.
