Canes are one of the most versatile mobility aids available. They can be used for support and to keep the pressure of a foot or leg whilst standing or walking. Walking canes are useful for the visually impaired, elderly, handicapped or for a patient recovering from a leg or foot injury. Quad canes offer more support and stability than traditional canes. Quad canes have four supports on the rectangular base at the end of the cane. If you are shopping for canes then you will find a rather wide range of walking canes to choose from.
