Walking sticks & accessories
A correctly measured walking stick enables the user to maintain an upright posture with the elbow slightly bent. The body's weight is taken through the stick as the user pushes down on it when walking. Using a walking stick of the correct height is important to ensure the correct upright posture is maintained.
When measuring for a walking stick, the handle should rest on the floor against a flexed wrist. The stick should then be adjusted or trimmed to the crease of the wrist.
Where two walking sticks are required, the length should be slightly longer as they will be used ahead of the body when walking. For further details on how to measure for a walking stick click here.
