How to Measure

Stand erect on a flat surface in shoes you normally wear. Put the handle of the cane on the floor and lean the end of it against your arm, then with your arms and shoulders relaxed and hanging to your side, mark the cane at the level of your wrist bone — that knobby bone on the outside of your wrist. Cut the stick at that point. Most important is your comfort and good alignment of your shoulder and arm. If your arm gets tired, or your shoulder rises as you walk, your cane is probably too tall and you may need to cut it again. Be sure to cut no more than 1/4” at a time. (Do not try to measure by yourself—you need another person to measure accurately.)
