These walking canes are masculinely designed, so that they are perfect for any man, young or old, who is looking for a cane. They come in a variety of colors and sheens, and in different lengths, as well. Aside from being aesthetically appealing, these men’s canes are also supportive and durable.
Who Needs a Cane?
A cane is meant for use by any individual who doesn’t need two-sided support; one-sided support is enough. This means that someone who uses a cane will have more mobile strength than a person who uses a walker. For this reason, often, when a person who uses a walker progresses in physical therapy, he’ll get a cane instead of his walker.
Components of a Men’s Cane
A men’s cane is made up of several different parts; the handle, the collar, the shaft, and the tip. Not all canes feature all these components, most will have at least half of these features. Find out more about the makeup of a cane immediately below.
The cane handle is the part of the cane that the person holds onto with this hand for support. As you’ll soon read in our Walking Canes Guide, there are several different style cane handles.
The shaft of the cane is that long stick that makes up most of the length of a men’s cane. This is the part that provides the user with the most support.
This looks similar to a ring. It is placed over where the cane handle and shaft meet.
A cane handle strap is a wrist strap that provides the cane user with something to sling over his hand when he isn’t using the cane. He can also utilize it to help prevent it from falling to the floor.
A cane tip actually has a fancier name; it’s also referred to as a ferrule. The cane tip is attached to the bottom of the cane in order to prevent wear and tear on the bottomest point of the cane, where it would touch the ground if not for the tip that’s over it.
Guide to Finding the Best Walking Canes for Men
Are you interested in purchasing a men’s cane, but you’re not sure what to keep in mind while searching? Do you want to get a men’s walking cane that is not only supportive, but offers added benefits as well? Below you’ll find some information on what to remember while searching for a men’s walking cane.
In order for the cane to provide you with maximum support, you’ll want it to have the proper weight capacity for your needs. A cane that is not made to bear the weight of the individual who is using it is not sufficiently safe for use. Therefore, always be sure that any cane you’re interested in has the optimal weight capacity for you or your patient or loved one.
In order for the cane to accomplish its purpose of supporting the user properly, and allow him to stand without leaning over low or stretching one’s hand upward more than necessary, the cane should be the right height for the user’s needs. This will prevent posture issues. Standard canes usually range between 29 and 38 inches, but there are walking canes for tall men who need canes that are longer than that.
In order to check what size cane you need, you can measure the length of space between your wrist and the floor (while you’re wearing your shoes). Place each hand straight against your body, and then bend the elbow of your dominant hand about fifteen degrees. Once you’ve done that you can have someone measure the distance from the floor to your wrist. This is how long you’ll want your cane to be.
There are men’s canes which are height adjustable, and can be set to the exact right height the user chooses.
When it comes to choosing a handle for a men’s cane, it’s really a matter of preference. There are a few different styles of cane handles to select from; to name just a few, there’s the Derby handle, the Fritz handle, the crook handle, and several other options. The Derby handle is an elegantly curved tip, and the Fritz handle features a stylish curve as well. The crook handle is a standard, classic men’s cane handle that looks almost like a shepherd’s staff.
Some handle designs are quite elegant and austere, while others are more simple and practical-looking. Choose the one that suits your taste best.
Men’s canes are usually constructed of either of the following two compositions: Metal or wood. Metal men’s canes are supportive and practical, and men’s wooden canes are sturdy, and often beautifully designed.
