From the beginning of LAKKANE


LAKKANE founder

“I encountered the different problems of safety and comfort face by crutches and walking sticks users.

My mother slipped getting out the shower, when she tried to reach her walking stick laying a little too far away. Marked by this incident which could have had a sad outcome, I decided to find a solution to bring independence, safety and comfort to all users of walking sticks and crutches, because I’m convinced that technologies should improve the every day life of persons suffering a temporary of permanent loss of autonomy, disabled persons, elderly persons, injured, operated, sportsman/woman…

After three yars of research, BEKKANE, KKANE and DOKK were born.

The LAKKANE adventure began.”
