A cane or walking stick can improve mobility and balance when you walk; it can also help reduce pain because it takes weight off your leg and joints.

Most canes are made of wood, plastic, or metal. Standard and straight-handled canes have a single leg; broad-based canes have three or four short legs to provide more support. Equipped for Life sells many different designs and colors of canes for all ages, right in our showroom.

It is important to be properly fitted and learn to use your cane correctly. An Equipped for Life service technician can adjust your new cane to your specific height and teach you to use it for walking, climbing stairs, getting in or out of chairs, and other everyday activities. We have years of experience working with patients who use a variety of canes. We’ll make sure yours is the safest and best option for your needs.
