Every person has different desires, unique opinions, and individual needs. No two human beings were ever created identical; just as every snowflake is distinct, the same goes for individuals. And therefore, there is almost never a one-size-fits-all cane option that will work for anyone. This is the very reason why AvaCare Medical offers walking canes for short persons. We understand that not all people are the same height, and we want to provide every person, regardless of height, with the perfect cane.
Why to Use a Walking Cane for Short Persons
The importance of using a walking cane that is the proper height simply cannot be underestimated. When a cane is the right size for the user, it allows the person to move around more confidently and easily. However, when a cane is not the correct size, ultimately, it is contra purposeful. This is because the user’s impetus for acquiring a cane is based on the fact that a cane is designed to assist the user with maintaining his balance, and to ensure the user is being properly supported while in a mobile state. Ergo, it is best to not have a cane at all rather than have a cane that is too high.
When a short person utilizes a tall cane, it is much more strenuous for him. He has to put in much more effort in order to raise the cane following each step. He must be careful to keep the cane straight, even though it is too high, because if he doesn’t do so, it may cause him to lose his balance. Also, a cane that is too high may trigger pain or strain on back and upper and lower arm muscles.
For all these reasons, it is imperative for a person to pick the cane that is the right height.
Pediatric Cane vs. Walking Cane for Short Person
A pediatric cane is not the same thing as a walking cane for a short person. The difference between the two is subtle, but distinct nonetheless: A pediatric cane is designed to support a child, and will usually be between 21 and 28 inches high. It has a weight capacity of about 150 pounds. In contrast, a walking cane for short persons can generally be adjusted to any height between 28 and 38 inches, and can hold at least 250 pounds. Essentially, a pediatric cane is designed for use by a child, while a walking cane for a short person was constructed to support a short person who is not in the throes of childhood, or even at the threshold of adolescence.

Petite Folding Canes
A petite folding is quite a practical choice, since it is able to be folded up when not in use. This allows one to walk with it when necessary, and store it discreetly in her purse when she doesn’t require its use. It also is quite convenient for when packing; it takes up less storage space. This is definitely the most compact kind of cane.
Petite Canes with Wrist Strap
This petite folding cane is not only compact; it also has a wrist strap. The benefit of a wrist strap is that one can stick his hand through it and keep it in place so that it won’t fall down.
Quad Cane for Short People
A quad cane offers superior, unrivaled support. It has a larger base than any other type of cane. According to the laws of physics, something with a larger base at the bottom will offer more support than something of the same makeup, with a smaller base at the bottom. Also, a quad cane features four legs. All this makes it ideal for people who are looking for a cane that will provide optimal support in order to maintain balance.

Some people require the use of bariatric products. Many of these individuals are on the taller side, or of average height, but there are individuals who are short, and require the use of bariatric products. For these people, AvaCare Medical has the option of a bariatric cane for short people.
