Daily Living Aid

We can see the developement of the most widely used Daily Living Aid, which has been in use for thousands of years, it first started out as a stick picked up from the ground.

It progressed to a stick being cut from a live tree, after some time, thought went into how to hold the stick.

The handle of a walking staff, later to become a walking stick has evolved from no handle, to a knot or fork in the original wood to a curved or sculpted head.
