Folding canes?

Postby Aaron » Thu Mar 17, 2005 9:58 am

Hi,

This is AAron, not to be confused with our fearless leader aRRon. :lol:

Anyway, I've heard people speak of canes that the can fold and carry if they don't need it at the time. Does anyone have any info on how I can purchase one of these. I sometimes 'gimp' after walking a distance, but sometimes I don't, and I don't want to be lugging around a stick all the time if I don't have to.

I'm also tired of missing out on things because I'm afraid I won't be able to handle the walk.

My husband has MS uses folding canes. They are nice except if you go across some mud that can make it stick. Otherwise, wonderful. You can get them on line at most of any medical supply place. Also, if you are in the USA Wal Mart carries them. Try to find the one that is brassy looking with a brown handle. This handle works best for grip
