While standard canes are a great option for those in need of balance assistance, some users will find they need a bit more support. For these individuals, quad canes are the perfect option. A quad cane has four legs, and offers a wider base and greater stability when compared to single platform models. While other four pronged walking aids (e.g. standard walkers , wheeled walkers , etc.) may prove obtrusive for those with minor mobility/balance difficulties, quad canes strike a balance between too much assistance, and too little.
