Canes are among the most common mobility aids available, allowing you to stay active and independent, and providing you with the stability you need. Lightweight and readily available, walking canes are ideal for those with balance issues, but who don’t need the assistance of a walker or rollator.
Choosing the wrong cane can often cause more problems than it solves, such as putting stress on your wrist or damaging your posture. Here are several factors to consider when choosing the right cane for you.
The standard single-tipped cane is lighter, allowing for easier mobility, but is on the less stable end of the spectrum.
Available with a large base or a small base, the quad cane has four points of contact with the ground, which allows for more stability.
The seat cane, like this folding cane from Drive, comes with a convenient seat for you to sit on when you need a rest.
Measure your cane by standing straight with your arms falling naturally at your sides. The proper-sized cane will be about the same distance from your wrist to the ground. Height adjustable canes allow for the best fit possible.
The traditional walking stick has a smooth round handle. A cane with a Derby handle (“T” handle) offers more support, and eliminates strain on your wrist. For extra comfort, consider a cane with a contoured handle to fit your grip, or a padded offset handle to eliminate slipping.
For a classic construction with a little extra weight, a wooden cane can be a good choice, but if you’re looking for something more durable or lightweight, go with an aluminum model.
The tip is of singular importance to a cane’s overall effectiveness and functionality. Most canes have a plastic or non-skid rubber tip. For extra stability, try a tripod cane tip.
Keep in mind that your cane tip will get worn over time. It's important to have the tip replaced every few months to ensure your balance and safety.
Folding canes are easy to transport, and can fold to fit inside a purse or backpack.
There’s no need to use a plain gray cane when there is a vast array of stylish and fun colors and designs to choose from! Find one that fits your style, and your cane can become a fun accessory, as well as a helpful tool.
Most canes can support a weight of up to 250 lbs. Bariatric canes are available for larger individuals..
Cane accessories, such as pouches, cane covers, wrist straps, or fleece grips, provide users with extra comfort and convenience.
