WALKING STICKS

 


What's the difference between different types of Walking Sticks?

The Material
- usually wood or metal. The more suitable woods are strong yet yielding - preventing undue jarring on the hand and arm
The Style - From elegant to rustic. The sticks can be very beautiful or very unusual, and besides being functional, many have become collectibles.

Latest update October 23, 2017

If your walking stick falls to the ground will you be able to pick it up easily?
Use a convenient Wrist Strap – can be attached to any stick

The Use - A companion on a stroll, support on a hike, or as a genuine walk aid; collapsible for travelling.
The Length - Adjustable length, or the stick may be cut to size. Standard length is 914mm (36 inches).

The Handle

Walkings/ick handle typesThe traditional Crook handle is comfortable to walk with and steady yourself if you stumble, and it is easy to hang up when not in use. It is strongest when the handle is all one piece with the shaft.
The Knob handle may be more elegant and decorative.
The Y-handle as in the thumbstick is wonderful to lean on and catch your breath.
The Crutch handle is more suitable for somebody who really has to lean on the stick, as it helps spread the pressure on the hand, and the modern “Derby” crutch, invented by Lord Derby in England, hangs easily on arm, rail or table. It comes in different styles. Melbourne crutch is very similar.

COMFORT WALKING STICKS


The HIT and Comfort walking sticks have the advantage of being slightly longer
than the standard
imported walking sticks –
and if necessary can easily be cut to your preferred length.

Comfort walking stick

ComfortThe shaft of the stick is made from hard woods –
Saligna wood shaft, longer than usual sticks.
The stick is fitted with a moulded crutch handle for comfort and added support.

This “Comfort” grip is ideal for the person who needs to put weight on the stick either through infirmity or inadvertently when out walking.

The shape of the grip distributes the pressure over the whole hand (with no pressure points) and the hand cannot slide over the top.

If your walking stick falls to the ground will you be able to pick it up easily?
Use a convenient Wrist Strap – can be attached to any stick


Length - the suggested correct length is just above the top of the thigh bone - which allows the hips and the shoulders to be level when the walking stick is placed fairly close to the body and pressure is exerted.
When standing with your arms hanging loosely at your sides, in your usual shoes, measure from the floor to your wrist.

Correct height of walking sticks

CORRECT HEIGHT OF WALKING STICKS
Physiotherapists recommend the following method of determining the correct height for a walking stick. The walking stick user should stand upright, in the type of shoes they usually wear, with their arms hanging naturally by their sides. Another person should turn the walking stick upside down, so that the handle is resting on the floor. Positioning the stick next to the user, make a small mark on the shaft of the stick level with the bump at the bottom of the wrist bone. Using a small saw, cut the stick at this point. This will mean that the user's arm will be slightly bent when they hold the stick.

If the walking stick user is not present, for example if they are buying their walking stick by mail order or through the internet, they can determine how long their walking stick should be by asking another person to measure the distance from their wrist bone to the floor. The walking stick user should ensure they are standing correctly i.e. standing upright, in the type of shoes they usually wear, with their arms hanging naturally by their sides.

Please note that this information is a guide only. Consult your doctor or physiotherapist if you require specific, medical advice on this matter.
