If cane handles aren't comfortable, the purpose can be defeated. If the weight doesn't sit right on the cane, it can even pose a walking hazard when it should be helping.

Otherwise, you could find yourself using cane handles that that feel uncomfortable or even painful when used. There are many canes that will work equally as well on either hand and this is often a good choice, especially if you will be buying the cane for someone else.
