Canes, Pedestal Base

Definition : Canes with a single fixed-length shaft and a supporting (pedestal) base designed to provide additional support and maximum stability to the user while walking. These canes usually consist of a one-piece straight shaft including a handle at the proximal end, and a pedestal base with metal/rubber pods at the distal end. The tips of the pods make the cane self-standing in order to provide maximum stability (e.g., tripod, quadripod). They are typically made of sturdy materials such as light metals (e.g., aluminum), plastics (e.g., acrylics), fiberglass, or a combination of these. Pedestal-base canes are available as fixed-length or adjustable-length. They are mainly designed to provide the user with support, balance, and stability and to reduce the stress of impact on the user's hand.
