Folding Walking Sticks
Folding walking sticks are suitable for everyday use. However as they can be folded away when not required, they are ideal for the occasional user or frequent traveller. It can be awkward to store a straight walking stick in a car, especially with multiple occupants. All our folding canes are height-adjustable with most being suitable for both men and women. Extra long folding canes are available for people over six feet tall.
Folding walking sticks should be adjusted in much the same way as regular walking sticks, except that no cutting is required obviously. The walking stick user should stand upright in their regular shoes with their arms hanging naturally by their sides. An assistant should turn the walking stick upside down so the the handle rests on the floor. Positioning the walking stick next to the user, adjust the folding walking cane height so that the tip is is level with the bump at the bottom of the wrist bone. This ensures that the user's arm will be slightly bent when they hold the walking stick.
This design which has an elegantly shaped right angle handle is attributed to a Lord Derby, who wanted a walking stick that could still be hooked over his arm when not in use and could leave their hands free. The Derby handle is usually thicker for men's larger hands, and thinner for ladies. The shape of the Derby handle means that the walking stick is very supportive, carries the user weight directly over the shaft of the stick and its curves prevent the hand from slipping forward or backward. The Melbourne handle is a variation of the Derby and offers a stylistic compromise between Derby and Crook handles.
