Size a Walking Cane

For walking canes, our standard 37-inch size is a good starting place for most adults. (For taller folks, we offer 40-inch canes as well.) Cane sizing is best achieved by standing up nice and straight, relaxing your arm naturally to the side, and having someone measure the distance from your wrist to the floor. As seen in the graphic below, a good cane size should allow for an elbow that is slightly bent.

Again, to reiterate, the sizing recommendations listed above are only suggestions.

Please note that our recommendations for walking with a cane, cane sizing, and any other cane-related recommendations, should not supersede your doctor’s advice. Please contact your doctor before using a cane for medical purposes.
