How to Measure a Walking Stick

How to measure your walking stick length:

To determine the length of your walking stick, hold a broom handle at a height that feels comfortable, then measure from the floor to the top of your hand. Add five inches to this measurement to get the length of your stick. Remember to have your walking shoes on before measuring.

For most people a walking stick feels comfortable when the elbow is at 90 degrees (forearm parallel to the ground) or slightly higher (better a little long than too short).

How to measure your cane length:

Stand naturally upright as much as possible, using a tape measure or yard stick, measure the distance from your “wrist joint” down to the floor. Round up to the nearest inch.

Remember to have your walking shoes on before measuring.
