When looking for an orthopaedic walking stick you will notice how many of these sticks are moulded to allow the majority of the palm of the hand to take place and rest on the stick.
Usually available in both left and right handed versions they will generally not be priced expensively and a basic orthopaedic stick can start at around £15 to £20.
Spares can be easily purchased for one of these sticks, including a rubber ferrule, wrist strap, anti slip grips, cane holders and more.
This style of stick is also designed to be comfortable, as it spreads the weight evenly across the palm and helps to prevent a pressure point from building up, in general you will get the support you need without putting uneccessary strain on your hand or wrist.
You can also buy folding orthopaedic sticks for easy storage.
