The Omhu design incorporates a generous offset handle that is easy to hold while delivering enhanced performance. The offset shape positions the hand, and body weight, directly over the shaft and tip at all times, for maximum stability and security.
Hockey sticks and skateboards lead to the use of multiple plys of birch in the hand-finished handle with contrasting light and dark color bands, while grip strips provide a better hold and the ability to lean the cane against a wall without fear of it falling over!
The high-strength aluminum shaft is painted with authentic American bicycle paint.
The patented tip is made of the same high-performance material found in premium athletic shoes for cushioning, traction and support.
In six lively colors, the Omhu cane puts a spring in your step.
Offset Birch plywood handle with a non toxic Livos oil finish: easy to clean, ages beautifully.
Wide handle allows for an easy and comfortable grip.
Invisible rubber stripping on handle for secure grip.
Offset design places the fulcrum over the tip for optimal stability and balance.
High-strength bicycle-grade aluminum shaft.

We were delighted to discover Omhu on a trip to New York for the gift market. Omhu is a design concern that makes premium medical equipment and accessories. Danish for “with great care,” Omhu was founded on the belief that life is imperfect and beautiful
Creative Direction for Omhu
Creative Director and President, Rie Nørregaard began work on OMHU in 2009 with its now signature cane. Like it's predecessor ELDERLUXE.com, Omhu began by virtue of necessity. When Rie’s family faced the need to outfit the rapidly changing lives of four aging parents, she eagerly took on the task of finding the best-designed aids for daily living. She found she had ventured into a sea of grey; found nothing bearing even the minimum evidence of acceptable design acumen. As the mother of two small children, Rie had seen the proliferation of diversifying baby products and accessories: products that explored different brand identities, price points, and design principles. The abundance in baby gear juxtaposed against the dearth of well designed mobility aids for anyone past infancy felt especially stark. It was obvious to the trained designer what needed to be done. Having worked for years at companies like Smart Design and Frog Design—working at the former in a small pioneering team that designed and launched OXO kitchen tools — Rie understood superior performance and vibrant design were not mutually exclusive. She then teamed with Susy Korb and Susan Towers—two experienced luxury marketing strategists — to take on the curious task of outfitting the differently abled. Omhu has become a movement on top of being a business, with an attitude toward design as well as the circumstances of life.
As Omhu touts: because with great care, life may be imperfect, and also beautiful.
