8% of children will have a stammer at one point growing up, most grow out of it but for 1% of people it is persistent for life. Most children with a stammer will not directly say how they are feeling.

Haken is aluminium die-casted and finished with a powder coating, Haken is not only durable and lightweight, but also eco-friendly and recyclable, making it a sustainable choice for environmentally-conscious consumers.
