Walking Cane by Medical King

This product was recommended by Farhan Advani from BuyHerePayHere

This Amazon’s choice award-winning walking cane provides the best support and balance for seniors. It has the highest rating for walking canes due to its robust, super comfortable, adjustable, and stylish design.

HONEYBULL Walking Cane

This product was recommended by Meg Marrs from Safer Senior Care

This is the one walking cane I always recommend. The 4 non-scratch rubberized quad-tipped base allows the cane to stand independently, and the base pivots to keep flat on any surface. This lightweight cane is made from heavy-duty aluminum, has five adjustable heights, is foldable, and comes with a handy travel bag. I actually used one a while ago when I injured my leg, and it is a really great cane that is perfect for seniors and anyone recovering from injury. I was never worried about slipping and found that the fact that the cane can stand on its own was an extremely handy feature.

TrailBuddy Hiking Poles

This product was recommended by Martin Sheerin from Light Up My Photos

I have a neurological disorder, Friedreick’s Ataxia (FA), that affects my balance and co-ordination. I have tried several versions of walking poles and have ended up with these TrailBuddy Hiking Poles. (1) They are made of aluminum. The main choice in walking poles is between carbon and aluminum. While carbon is a tad lighter it is also a lot more brittle. The extra strength and security of aluminum cuts down on the fear of the carbon snapping, especially when I’m away from home. (2) The handles have a cork grip which adds to my sense of security. The cork molds more to the shape of my hands, over time, and also absorbs hand sweat, which helps. (3) Comes with two sets of rubber tips – these rubber tips wear out unbelievably quickly!
