These metal and wooden walking sticks have anatomically shaped handles designed to spread your weight over a wider area of your hand. They are specifically designed for left or right handed use.
These sticks may be more comfortable if you use a walking stick everyday or if you have painful hands.
There is a range of traditional & contemporary walking sticks in this section, combining elegance and style.
Assessment by a qualified Physiotherapist is recommended when considering walking and standing equipment. They will assess your personal requirements and will ensure that the equipment is the correct height, size and type for your needs.
It is essential that walking sticks are adjusted to the correct height for each individual user. If the height is incorrect then the support will not be adequate. For example, if the walking stick is too high, this will result in you raising (elevating) your shoulders, therefore reducing your balance and comfort.
All ferrules should be checked regularly and replaced as appropriate.View references and sources of further information ›
