I love this cane, as I am walking more upright and not stooped over! My back doesn't complain anymore.
I have arthritis in my hands, and the handle let's me choose my hand position, so I don't get cramped fingers, or a sore wrist.
I haven't used the cane a lot but think it will be more serviceable in time.
Think it is helpful with balance too,which seems to be a troublesome problem as one sges.
