Single-point cane – Ideal when minimal support is needed. Single-point canes are the most basic type of cane. Various handle types and colours available. These are also available in a collapsible version – great for travelers!
Quad cane – Ideal when more support is needed. Quad canes have four points of contact with the ground. They can also stand on their own, a convenience that many appreciate.
Crutches – Used to take weight off a limb. These are usually used to recover from a lower limb injury. Available in youth and adult sizes, in aluminum or wood.
Walker – Used when a high level of stability is required. This is often the next step after a quad cane or using two canes. Walkers are typically lightweight and easy to transport. Various accessories are available.
Rollator – Similar to a walker, but designed for more mobile people. Rollators have four wheels, brakes, and are slightly larger. Most come with a built-in carry basket, which adds convenience when shopping or moving things around the home. There are a wide range of options to suit individual need and taste.
Transport Chair – These chairs are for those who cannot propel themselves. They are lightweight and the easiest of the wheelchair family to transport. They do not have drive wheels, which means an attendant is required to move the chair.
Cane Ice Pick Accessory – Installs onto any single point cane, the cane ice pick digs into ice or snow to provide extra traction in the winter months.
