Things to Consider in Finding the Right Walking Stick for Me
The primary objective of using a walking stick is to provide support and improve balance of the user. It also must ease tension in certain parts of the body usually strained during walking and standing.
It is important to note that when looking for a good and appropriate walking stick, the height of the stick, type of handle and make are among the important consideration for the utmost provision of support. Height matters according to how tall the user is. Type of handle would provide for the level of comfort that must be maintained when the walking stick is held when standing or while walking. The make of the walking stick would be in consideration especially if the user is always traveling (say, it is necessary to fold the walking stick for ease of transport and mobility, at times).
There are also types of walking sticks that have additional function for more practicality. Especially for those people who would like to stroll and watch the sun set, walking sticks with light can be helpful afterwards when they go to places (like from the park going home) and the night falls and it is becoming dark outside.
With all the more important considerations above, it goes without saying that style may not be taken for granted. Walking sticks may come in different colors and have designs on them that can make these products more pleasing.
Ultimately, whatever features your walking sticks have, the most important details of it must be to give you the utmost support you desire.
Setting the Right Height for My Walking Stick
When standing or walking aided with a walking stick, its base must be located approximately half a foot away from the outside of the foot (on the side where the balance and support is necessary). The height of the handle must be as tall as where the wrist crease height falls. The elbow on the side of the hand holding the stick must bend slightly when holding the stick.
With these, the user of the walking stick must be able to stand without: (1) having to lean just to have the stick be able to support their body, which means that the stick is adjusted too low; and (2) putting strain on the elbow and arm, which means that the stick is adjusted too high.
It is also good to measure the height of the wrist crease to the ground. Ensure that the user is wearing their walking shoes, they are standing naturally upright and that the elbow is slightly bent inwards, but still with the arm relaxed.
