Home / ILS Blog / What Is A Quad Walking Stick / Cane?

A quad walking stick, AKA quad cane, is similar to a standard walking stick but with a wide or a narrow base to improve stability. A large quad base walking stick can be heavier and it might be more difficult to manoeuvre. A smaller base quad walking stick provides less support than a large quad base walking stick but it is easier to lift and manoeuvre while walking.

Speak with a healthcare provider to decide if a narrow or wide base is best for you.
