  • Perceived effectiveness for Walking problems: Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all

Advice & Tips: Try out different handle types and styles, especially if you have sensory problems with your hands. Different quad canes have different weights, Heavy canes can be burdensome if you are weak. This can also affect your coordination, I got my foot tangled up in the quad foot multiple times.
