Comfortable Walking with our Ergonomic & Functional Walking Sticks


This week in our blog we thought we would take a look through some of our more ergonomic and functional walking sticks. It is always tempting to talk about our latest fashionable designs or our collectors' canes with their numerous novel features, but sometimes all our customers are looking for is a walking stick that can be trusted and that is comfortable to use.

Well, today we have chosen a selection we are sure fits the bill. First of all we have our black quad cane. We will no longer be stocking the Switch Sticks quad canes at the Stick and Cane Shop, so we have been hunting around to find a replacement that meets our customers' requirements as quad canes provide the optimum stability available by giving the user 4 points of contact with the ground instead of the traditional 1 with standard canes. Also, if you are a left-handed user, the bottom of this cane can swivel to allow left-handed use. So if you find that you tend to stumble with a standard cane, why not try out the very stable, and very comfortable Quad Cane (see below.)

In addition we also bring you our Extra-long and Extra Strong walking sticks with both crutch handles and ergonomic handles. These canes are ideal for the person of larger stature or greater height, giving you optimal stability, a sturdy stick and a comfortable walking experience. Add to this the choice in handles available, our crutch handle provides a comfortable to use grip, and for those wanting a handle that fits to the palm of your hand, be sure to try our our ergonomic handles (available for both right- and left-handed use!)

We are sure you will love the variety of designs available in our blog today, and even though these do not feature the flashier designs you find in our other canes, you can be sure that they make up for it in comfort and sturdiness of use and will look great whatever the occasion may be!
