Any tips for someone just starting out using a cane? I'm new to mobility aids and any helpful advice is welcome. Using a cane has been great for my overall health and my legs, but my arms/ hands are suffering. Also, any cool queer, poc, and/or woman owned places to buy canes from?

      Why would your arms and hands suffer using a cane? I been using one for years and have never had a problem of course I tweaked mine to my specification lol I took away some of the store bought parts and added my own so the griper is lots better and the end is much better in the snow and ice compared to the store bought piece where u can fall on your butt lol.

One user suggests that if you're having hand issues with canes, forearm crutches might solve that problem. Another user recommends starting off with a fairly cheap adjustable cane from Amazon to see if it helps first. For purchasing canes, one user mentions the company Cool Crutches based in the UK and another user mentions Neo Walks as their favorite place to buy walking sticks. However, no specific queer, POC, or woman-owned businesses were mentioned in the provided context.
