Elderly People | Old Age

Though a controversial subcategory of adulthood, humans are typically considered elderly, old, or senior citizens once they reach the age of 65 years old. Often understood as the final phase of adulthood in which a human nears the end of their life cycle, adults who fall into the category of elderly often experience many of the same symptoms characteristic of aging. Physical symptoms may include hair loss, hearing loss, and wrinkles in the skin. This is due to the fact that over time, the human body loses many of its regenerative abilities, making it more prone to injury, disease, syndromes, and sickness than that of younger humans.

Walking | Assistive Cane
Drawing diagramming the range of motion of a Walking Cane to the side and to the front of a person

Walking canes, also known as assistive canes or walking sticks, are a form of mobility aid that redistribute weight away from injured or weak lower limbs. The basic cane is made up of a handle for a comfortable grip, a collar to connect the handle to the shaft, the shaft for transmitting weight load, and the ferrule (tip) for being a tactile interface that adjusts to the ground surface. Outside of injury and assisted general support and movement, canes are often used for a variety of needs that include aging, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, arthritis, diabetes, and other conditions.

Fit, comfort, and safety are paramount for the effectiveness of a cane and the first step to accomplish these goals is correctly fitting a cane to a person. To size a walking stick for an individual, measure the distance from a flat floor surface to their wrist joint while they are wearing standard walking shoes. From this dimension, round down to the nearest size available or place a custom order. Another simple way to estimate cane length is to divide an individual’s height by two and find the closest cane size within 1” (2.5 cm) from this measurement.
