Walking Sticks

There are many styles of walking sticks available and again, the choice of stick will depend on the persons condition and their personal preference. Walking stick designs available include:

  • Single point sticks – The most common, usually made of wood or aluminium
  • 3-point (tripod) sticks – Suitable for those who require extra support.
  • 4point (quad) sticks – Ideal for those who need more support.

The tripod and quad stick designs are used by people who require additional support (i.e. due to poor balance). Depending on the person’s disability, either one or two sticks may be used.
