5/5 Ease of Use
5/5 Meets Expectations
Reviewer: carol s. from des plaines, il
User Details: 65 year-old who, due to knee problems, occasionally needs the help of a cane to sit, stand, or walk.
Strengths: I'm only 4'10" and I appreciated the fact that this cane adjusts low enough to fit me properly. As an extra bonus, it arrived adjusted to the shortest setting, so I didn't have to do anything. Also, I didn't expect a hand strap, but I can see where it might come in handy, so it was a pleasant surprise. When looking for a cane, I noticed that some brands (not this one, though) have reviews that question stability, but this one is very secure -- no wobble. Of course, I've never tried any other height settings, so I can't say whether the cane is as secure when set at longer lengths.
Weaknesses: The rubberized handle makes it easy to hang in most cases, but since there's no hook-like shape, it doesn't always work when trying to hang from certain surfaces -- only a minor issue.
