Walking Canes vs. Walking Sticks
Our Price:Rs 375
The Canes of today are very different from the ones of the past. Individuals can choose from standard, folding, or quad canes. For the fashion conscious, there are Lucite canes available in many colors to coordinate with almost any outfit, and many people opt for several of these. Other manufacturers and suppliers have fashion canes with derby, dog, or even duck head handles in eclectic materials like simulated horn, shell, or ivory. The point is, while one may need a medical device like a cane, expressing one’s personality is simple with the wide variety of styles and options in the market.
A walking stick is a device used by many people to facilitate walking, for fashion, or for defensive reasons. "Cane (walking stick)" redirects here. For use as a mobility aid, see Assistive cane.
Walking sticks come in many shapes and sizes, and can be sought by collectors. Some kinds of Adjustable Walking Sticks Elderly may be used by people with disabilities as a crutch. The walking stick has also historically been known to be used as a defensive or offensive weapon, and may conceal a knife or sword as in a sword stick.
While they often seem to be interchangeable words, walking sticks and walking canes are actually two very different types of product with different uses. Many people get them mixed up, but if you read on, you will be one of the elite few who know the difference between walking sticks and canes.
The main difference, of course, is function. Walking canes are designed to take weight on a regular basis. If you need support while walking, and you want to be able to lean your full weight on a walking aid, it is important that you use a walking cane. Canes are most often made of wood, aluminum, or steel. They are meant to take constant weight, and are designed to be comfortable and practical for daily use. Many fold down to less than a third of their normal height, making them convenient to tuck into a purse or bag. While they can have exciting colors and patterns, most walking canes feature simple construction and handles designed for comfortable use.
Walking sticks, on the other hand, are mainly items of fashion. They are often not designed to take any weight at all, as they are little more than accessories. They can be made from a wide variety of materials, and their handles can get very elaborate- and uncomfortable! Trying to put your weight on a knob handle could result in severe discomfort or pain in your hand and wrist. Be careful when using a walking stick, and be aware that they truly are accessories rather than walking canes.
So there you have it; the difference between walking sticks and canes is one of form vs. function, of style vs. practicality. Don’t be fooled into thinking a walking stick can serve as a mobility aid- they may be flashy and attractive, but a strong, solid, comfortable cane will last longer and provide greater comfort. And in the end, that safety is far more important than a walking stick handle shaped like a duck.

Unfortunately, your doctor or loved one might not suggest you need a cane or walker until after you have a fall and have a scare. Canes are used to help you compensate for an injury or disability.

We have different colors, folding canes, ergonomic canes, adjustable canes, acrylic canes with different styles of patterns and prints, derby canes, and canes with seats on them, you name it, and we probably have it and most are under $20.
One of the many benefits of using a can is you get to keep your independence. I will admit using a cane is a downside of aging but it is a whole lot better than falling down and possibly permanently your independence. People who use a Walking Sticks stand up straighter and move with more and more control.
When sizing for a can, it is best to see your health care professional. The cane users should be wearing his/her normal shoes and be as upright as possible. His/her arms should hang at their sides with a normal bend at the elbow. If possible, have a second person place the cane upside down and the bottom portion of the cane should be even with the bend in the wrist. If you do not have a second person, you can use a tape measure to measure the bend of the wrist of a person to the floor to get the right length of a cane.
