Canes, Adjustable-Length

Definition : Canes using a single shaft that can be adjusted in length designed to provide additional support to the user while walking. These canes usually consist of a straight shaft divided in several sections with holes and pins to adjust length, a handle at the proximal end, and a rubber tip at the distal end. The handle typically includes an easy-to-turn button/knob at its base with a mechanism that is activated to adjust the length of the cane. They are typically made of sturdy materials such as light metals (e.g., aluminum), plastics (e.g., acrylics), fiberglass, or a combination of these. Adjustable-length canes are mainly designed for patients with mobility disabilities.
