    Steps on How to Measure for a Cane

    The correct cane length is the key to safe use and better mobility. Many models of canes are adjustable, but it is still helpful to know what the proper length should be.

    1. Obtain measurements while wearing regular walking shoes.
    2. Standing upright, allow arms to relax (with normal bend at the elbow) at your sides.
    3. Have a second person measure the distance from your wrist joint down to the floor. This number is the right length of cane for you.

    An estimate of the proper cane length can be made by dividing an individual’s height by two. For most persons, the right sized cane is within one inch of half their height. This guideline can be applied if the user is not available for an actual measurement.

    This is a common question from our customers so do not worry! We have many more resources in our Learning Center about Canes.
