Description

 The walking stick is a technical aid for mobility. This mobility aid increases stability and reduces fatigue or load on the lower extremities while walking, since it allows the weight of the affected leg to be unloaded.

Walking sticks are indicated for use by people who have functional deficits in one or both lower extremities caused by pathologies such as arthritis and osteoarthritis or neurological diseases. The use of the walking stick allows the user to maintain their independence when moving and helps to encourage the user to continue to live a good, dynamic and active lifestyle.

For the walking stick to fulfil its purpose, it is necessary to make good use of it. To do this, it is necessary to take into account the following:

  • The grip on the handle of the cane must be adequate. The user must feel comfort and security in the support of the hand, choosing the handle that best suits their needs.
  • The measurement should extend from the wrist to the floor in a vertical position. In other words, the optimal height is the height from the greater trochanter to the ground.

 In addition, we must check the condition of the support point frequently, since once the rubber (ferrule) begins to wear out, the risk of falling increases and the cane loses grip and, therefore, stability.
