Sizing Your Cane

It is easiest to get an accurate length for your cane if you have somebody else to help you take the measurement.

To measure yourself for a cane, stand on a flat surface with your shoes on and stand up straight. Let your arms hang free and have somebody measure you from the ground up to where your wrist bends.

 

Sizing Your Cane

 

Add 1 inch to that measurement for an accurate cane length. Remember, if in doubt, order your cane an extra inch or two longer from your measurement. It's a lot easier to cut a cane that is too long, than it is to stretch a cane that is too short!
