Guest Hi - Coincidentally, I’ve been having “issues” about cane tips. I am using a tripod and it’s proven the best for me. I found quads cumbersome as my foot gets caught or kicks it. Also, I’ve ordered and have received a cane that’s been “cut to size” I didn’t realize my old cane was too high, which caused irritation between my thumb and wrist.

Hope you make great progress in your walking process. Remember the Tortoise and the Hare - slow and steady wins the race!

In my experience, it is better to progress to a single point stick if you can....I had my stroke in April 2016 and was using a quad stick by 3 months, therapists helped me move onto a single point stick in another 2 months... It felt odd in the beginning but Im now walking without my stick indoors and hope to get rid of the stick all together before the end of the year... A single point stick will challenge your balance more, this is likely to result in better quality walking over time pamelai1 wrote:
