Best Canes of 2021

Are you looking for a cane that promotes stability and good balance? The quad cane may be just right for you. A regular cane only has one point of contact increasing the possibility of an accident. A quad cane provides greater support, the wider base affords you the ability to put more weight on it, unlike a basic cane. Quad canes also eliminate other problems experienced with a basic cane, including slipping and falling on specific surfaces.

When you are out walking around the neighborhood, getting a bit of exercise, a traditional cane may slip in the loose gravel on the side of the road. Slippery rugs are another surface to watch out for with a traditional cane. Quad canes while not perfect can provide more stability in the above situations and ones similar to them.

When transitioning to a quad cane, one thing you will notice right away is the added weight of the cane. While a basic cane is lighter the quad cane has extra feet to account for but also provides that extra bit of stability. Within a short amount of time, the weight will be forgotten, and finding new places to travel, with secure mobility will be the new focus.

Here is a review of several quad canes on the market.
