Quad Canes and Single Point Canes
Several years ago we had a precious WWII veteran that would frequent our store. He was a go getter! He got up every morning and went and sat with his wife at the nursing home where she laid quietly. She never acknowledged he was there due to her Alzheimer disease but that never stopped him from going and sitting by her side and talking to her. He would talk to the staff and talk to the visitors as they came in and out. Everyone knew him! He walked with a cane that he bought from our store. It had American Flags on it and he walked with it proudly! He always had people stopping and talking to him about his cane. He probably bought 20 of those American Flag canes and gave them out to his friends that needed them. We miss him and I always think of him when I see an American Flag can today.
We keep Quad canes and Single Point Canes in stock. They both have good practical uses that can benefit you.
Quad Canes are good for helping you feel like you have a little more stability. It has a wider base and four little feet. It stands up on it’s own when you are sitting in a chair or resting between walks.
Single Point Canes give you something to assist with your walking. It helps when ambulating over rough surfaces and your gait needs some assistance, the cane is perfect for that extra help.
The quad canes usually have 2 choices of base sizes to choose from and come in a few standard colors like bronze, silver or chrome and black. They have soft cushioned handles for comfort as well. They can be height adjusted for the proper fitting for you the patient.
The cane designs are just fun! We have a variety of canes you can choose from. It is a great way to display your personality through your cane. They have soft foam handles, they have hard plastic handles, and also wooded shepard hook handles. There are several accessories that can be attached for convenience. Like a wrist loop so you don’t drop it or lose it. A cane holder that will clip onto a wheelchair. They are all height adjustable but we have wooden ones that can be cut to size.
Hope that helps give you a sample of the difference in the two canes.
