A quite attractive slender black dress cane, perfect for formal and informal occasions. When simplicity begets the perfect look, this is the accessory you'll desire next to your side. A true designer cane with unspoken luxury.

This is a petite, slim cane; best functions for balance and as an accessory, not for heavy-duty orthopedic or support needs.

HELPFUL INFORMATION:

  • Choose the correct type of cane for you. There are five main types, and they are listed here in the order you should use them depending on your weight or pain.
    • Cane-single point
    • Quad cane-4 tips
    • Crutch
    • Walker
    • Rollator
  • Use your cane in the hand that is opposite of the side of your pain. For example, if you have a pain in your right leg, use the cane in your left hand.
  • Make sure you have a good grip of the cane and that the fingers and thumb do not overlap.
  • Shift as much weight to the cane as necessary.
  • When ascending stairs, step first with your unaffected leg, placing your foot on the next stair up from where you are, then bring the cane and the affected leg up by straightening that unaffected leg.
  • When descending stairs, step first with the affected leg and cane at the same time and lower yourself slowly by bending your unaffected leg's knee until the stick and your affected legs foot are in firm contact with the next stair down, then bring your unaffected leg down to the same stair.
  • Keep your free hand on the railing when going up or down stairs.
  • Make sure the tips/stoppers on the bottom of the cane/walker are not worn or broken. Get someone to help you replace them if they are.
  • Consider the functionality of the cane, not only its appearance.
  • Select from the various styles of canes by considering the stability each offers.
  • Discuss your options with a doctor, so you know which type of cane will support you the best.
  • An offset, t-handle, ergonomic, derby or Fischer handle is often times the best/optimal choice for maximum support.
  • A crook shaped handle is the worst choice of cane for people with a lot of pain.
  • Handle:Wood, modified Fritz style.
  • Shaft: Wood, slender 5/8 inch diameter.
  • Length: 35 inches - can be Custom Cut to size, enter desired length in COMMENTS section at check-out (NOTE-Custom Cut canes can not be returned).

DETERMINING AND ORDERING CANE LENGTH:

"It is always best to consult your doctor for both type and length of cane she/he feels best for you."- the Concierge.

  • Please enter desired length in the COMMENTS Section during checkout.
  • NOTE: Custom Cut canes can not be returned.
  • Stand erect with both arms relaxed at your sides and wear the shoes that you normally wear.
  • Elbow flexion should be about 25 degrees.
  • MEASURE from the floor to your mid wrist (just before wrist bone, or second skin crease of inner wrist).
  • When one can not measure the rule is: Cane length is "usually about" one half the cane user's height, in inches, wearing shoes ( i.e. person is 5'8" = 68 inches, 1/2 is 34 inches, thus cane should be around 34 inches).
  • PROPER CANE LENGTH: Shoulders should be even with each other. If you have an existing cane, look in the mirror with cane in place. If the shoulder of arm holding cane is higher than the other, your existing cane is too long. If this shoulder falls lower than the other, your existing cane is too short.
  • Ideally, if requiring a walking cane as a mobility aid, consult a Physical Therapist to determine the proper cane length. Otherwise, please carefully follow the proceeding guidelines to determine the proper cane length…It is strongly recommended that you have someone assist you when measuring for the proper length of your walking cane for the first time.
