Derby Style Walking Canes
The derby cane is by far the most popular type of cane available. Not only are they comfortable to use, but they provide a lot of support and they look great. They are named for Lord Derby, who favored this classic design. It is the handle of this particular cane that sets it apart from other canes.
The handle of the derby cane has an elegant shape that creates a comfortable grip. This cane is often recommended for use by people with arthritis or other conditions that make gripping difficult. It has a reinforced pin where the handle meets the shaft and this combined with the unique shape of the handle provides for maximum support. It helps to direct the weight of individuals over the shaft which makes it incredibly stable and comfortable. Most canes do not have these features. The lack of these essential characteristics can actually throw people off balance or cause them to overcompensate, making for an extremely tiring walking experience.
Derby canes are typically made out of high-quality, durable woods. You can occasionally find canes made out of other materials but they probably will not be as strong. The wood is treated with a semi-gloss and water resistant finish to ensure that it lasts for years and continues to look fabulous. They are also wood kiln cured for extra strength and durability.
The derby cane is chosen 4 to 1 over any other cane. There are many reasons for its popularity, besides it stability and classic look. The unique crook shape at the back of the handle allows it to be easily hung over a wrist or arm when both hands are needed. This cane is particularly durable and not just because it is made out of high quality wood. It is also threaded with steel studs for added strength. For added stability the cane has a rubber ferrule, or tip, to prevent slips.
If you are looking for a cane that provides comfort, support and stability, the derby cane is the perfect choice. Not only is it extremely comfortable for both men and women but it looks fabulous as well. The handles of the women's canes are usually a bit smaller making for a comfortable grip. This classic cane adds a touch of elegance and grace to anyone who uses it.
They have a very stylish and timeless design that is extremely popular. They can be hung over the wrist when you need to use both hands. These comfortable canes are available in mens and womens walking designs.Fritz handle canes are a good alternative if the derby handle does not meet your need.
