Adjustability Of Modern Walking Cane Can Provide Key Element To Good Posture
Experts suggest adjustable walking canes are vital for good posture
According to Mayo Clinic’s advice, when using a walking cane the user should bend the elbow at a comfortable angle, which is usually about 15 degrees. The elbow may need to bend to a somewhat greater degree, if the cane's usage is chiefly for balance. To determine the exact height of a cane, Mayo Clinic suggests the user rests their arm down the side of their body. The crease in the user's wrist needs to match the top of the cane.
"If the cane is too long, you'll need to work harder to pick it up and move it," reads the Mayo Clinic tip for choosing and using canes. "If your cane is too short, you might lean on one side—which would throw you off balance."
The Handy Cane comes with a push-button/spring adjustable mechanism allowing for 10 height level modifications, ranging from the highest setting of 40 inches (100 centimeters) down to 30 inches (77 centimeters). The handle can even shrink to 25 inches (65 centimeters), allowing for discreet storage when there's a need to tuck the cane out of sight.
Human beings are created in different sizes, all standing at various heights. Gravity Mobility Aids takes that fact into the design of the Handy Cane, giving it full adjustability to individualize the product to each customer.
