    The cane is a technical aid for mobility. It serves to facilitate walking, increasing stability, and reducing fatigue or load when walking on the lower extremities, since it allows the weight of the affected leg to be unloaded. The use of the cane allows the user to maintain independence to move and helps to have a good quality of life, dynamic and active.

    For the cane to fulfill its purpose it is necessary to make good use of it. For this, it is necessary to take into account the following:

    • The grip of the cane handle must be adequate. The user must feel comfort and security in the support of the hand, choosing the handle that best suits their needs
    • The measurement must cover from the wrist to the floor in an upright position. In other words, the optimal height is the one that exists from the greater trochanter to the ground.

    In addition, we must check the condition of the fulcrum frequently, since once the rubber begins to wear, the risk of falling increases and the stick loses adherence and, therefore, stability.
