FOLDING CANE INSTRUCTIONS

Determine the proper size:
  • With regular walking shoes on, place the handle of the cane on the ground on the opposite side of the weak or injured side
  • Stand comfortably; if the rubber tip does not touch the middle crease on the inside of your wrist, the cane needs sizing.
How to fit:
  • It takes 2 people to fit a cane
  • The user should be wearing their usual walking shoes and standing as naturally upright as possible.
  • Their arms should hang at their sides with a normal bend at the elbow
  • The non-cane user places the cane with the handle on the ground, opposite the side of the injured or weaker leg.
  • The user stands with the palm facing the cane.
  • The correct adjustment is the hole closet to the crease in the middle of the wrist.
How to adjust the height:
  • Loosen the Secure Lock Screw on one of the ten adjusting positions of the shaft.
  • Depress the adjusting button and turn the bottom section of the shaft, lengthening or shortening to the desired height by sliding the shaft up or down.
  • Twist the shaft to allow the adjusting button to pop out into the adjustment hole.
  • Make sure the adjusting button pops completely out to insure maximum stability.
  • A clicking sound will occur when the adjustment button is completely engaged.
  • Tighten the secure lock screw.
How to walk with a cane:
  • The cane is placed in the opposite hand opposite of the injured or weak leg.
  • The cane moves with the weak/injured side.
  • Stand normally with cane tip meeting the floor flatly. Hold the top of the handle. (If using an offset cane, slip the hand through the wrist strap.) Hold handle securely.
  • Move the cane foot first, taking one step directly in front of the body.
  • Move the cane and weaker foot at the same time, taking one step.
  • Continue in this manner, taking short smooth steps to insure balance.
