Rubbermaid Black Cane Tips
Lightweight and portable, canes are ideal for people with a disability or injury who need extra balance to walk normally. When choosing a cane, you need to make sure that it accommodates your height and weight. The wrong cane can put a strain on your wrists or actually make you fall. The cane you use should be sturdy, comfortable and reliable. It should give you the independence and freedom you want and need to lead an active life.
Here are some things to consider when choosing a cane:
Standard canes are single-tipped, lightweight and easy to maneuver in small spaces.
Quad canes are the most stable type of cane as they feature four tips instead of one. These canes come with either a large base or small base.
Seat canes are simply what the name implies – a cane that can be also used as a seat! The built-in seat is perfect for waiting in long lines or just taking a break after a long walk. There are two styles to choose from: tripod seat and sling seat. A tripod seat features a handle with two additional legs that unfold to open the seat. A sling seat features a fabric sling that sits between two legs.
A cane that’s too short or too tall can lead to back problems and wrist pain. Be sure to choose a cane that accommodates your own height. Some canes are height adjustable for the best fit possible.
Round handles (or crook handles) are the most traditional type of cane handle, but can be difficult for people with low dexterity to grip.
Derby and Fritz handles are very popular among cane users due to their contoured design.
For those who need more stability, the offset cane helps distribute your weight and reduces the strain on your wrist as you walk.
Most canes come with a non-skid rubber tip to provide stability when walking on all of types of floors, from wood to tile. For greater support, try a tripod cane tip.
Cane tips should be replaced regularly to ensure your safety and balance.
Look for a walking cane made of strong and durable materials. Aluminum canes are typically lighter than wooden canes.
Folding canes, like Switch Sticks, are great for travel and public outings because they easily fold up and fit in your bag or purse.
Nowadays, canes come in various fun colors and stylish designs compared to traditional brown canes of the past. There are even patterned covers you can slip onto your cane as a fun accessory.
Most canes can support at least 250 lbs. Look for a bariatric or heavy duty cane if you need extra support.
