Replacement cane tips
Important - training is needed to use a long cane safely and effectively
- Long canes are rolled or tapped from side to side as you walk, to find your way and avoid obstacles, and should not be used for supporting a person's body weight.
- A long cane should reach between the user's sternum (breastbone) and under the chin, when the user is standing upright and the cane tip is touching the ground between their legs. The length and speed of walking stride will also affect the length of the cane required.
- If you’d like advice on the right cane for your needs, or to arrange cane training for yourself or a relative, please contact your Local Society or Social Services team for assistance. Contact us on 0303 123 9999 for help finding your local service.
