StrongArm® Comfort Cane FAQs:
What Makes the StrongArm® Different From Traditional Canes?
The StrongArm® works effectively at shifting the user’s weight by moving their weight from the wrist to the forearm. This helps the individual distribute their weight more evenly as they walk, yet it also eases tension on the wrist. Furthermore, the StrongArm® has an ergonomic handle that keeps your wrist and forearm in a natural position to prevent further injuries from happening. This is particularly useful for those with any type of joint inflammation or carpal tunnel disorder.
Traditional canes do not offer weight distribution, and individuals who utilize this type of walking cane could encounter strain in their wrist. These designs are not recommended for individuals with existing joint issues.
