How long should my walking stick be?
Physiotherapists recommend the following method of determining the correct height for a walking stick. The walking stick user should stand upright, in the type of shoes they usually wear, with their arms hanging naturally by their sides. Another person should turn the walking stick upside down, so that the handle is resting on the floor. Positioning the stick next to the user, make a small mark on the shaft of the stick level with the bump at the bottom of the wrist bone. Using a small saw, cut the stick at this point. Alternatively, if it is a height-adjustable model, set the mechanism to the appropriate height. A stick fitted to the correct height will mean that the user’s arm will be slightly bent when they hold the stick. Please note that this information is a guide only. Consult your doctor or physiotherapist if you require specific medical advice on this matter.
ORTHOPAEDIC WALKING STICKS
There is no officially approved weight test for walking sticks because people use them in such varied ways and at different angles. A 50kg person leaning heavily on their stick will exert more force on it than a 100kg person using a stick for light balance only. If a person requires very heavy support from a walking stick, a sensible course of action is to refer them to their doctor or physiotherapist, who will recommend a suitable design.
VAT exemption (UK only)
There are strict laws governing which walking sticks may be sold exempt of VAT (Value Added Tax) to registered disabled people in the UK. The stick must have been designed specifically for the use of a disabled person. All sticks in the Classic Canes orthopaedic range fulfil this criterion, but please note that standard derby and crook walking sticks do not. Non-disabled people cannot buy orthopaedic sticks exempt of VAT.
