Frequently Asked Questions:
1-What are hand support walking sticks used for?
Hand Support Walking Sticks are often used for longer term injuries and illnesses. They use more upper body strength than underarm crutches, but they give you more control over your movement. They tend to be easier to use on uneven terrain and stairs.
2-How do you use a walking stick for support?
When standing up straight, the top of your walking stick should reach to the crease in your wrist. Your elbow should be slightly bent when you hold your walking stick. Hold the walking stick in the hand opposite the side that needs support. For example, if your right leg is injured, hold the walking stick in your left hand.
3-What's the point of a walking stick?
Walking sticks provide a basic level of support and are designed to assist with balance. They can also be used to assist if someone has an injured leg and requires less weight on the affected leg.
4- Who would benefit from a walking stick?
People who would benefit from an Hand Support Walking Stick are People with long term injuries, Seniors, Elderly, Aged care and people with some types of disability as they provide more support and stability than a regular walking stick.

Walking sticks take some of the load off your lower back, hips and knees, which may be helpful if you have arthritis or back problems.
