Canes And Crutches
Walking Canes & Crutches are very beneficial for people with weakness or instability during walking. An assistive walking cane or crutch is a great mobility aid that can help improve stability by increasing the base of support and improve balance. In the US, approximately 10% of adults older than 65 years use canes, and about 5% use walkers. A Walking Cane improves balance, reduces the risk of falling and provides support.
Canes are available with single tip cane and quad canes. Most people with arthritis need only single tip canes, but those with a neurological impairment often walk better with a quad cane for more stability.
Crutches are often prescribed when recovering from an injury or surgery of the ankle, knee or leg.
