A universal cane wrist strap is a small tool that can make a big difference for an arthritis patient. Arthritis is the leading cause of disability among Americans. The symptoms of arthritis can affect every aspect of life particularly arthritis in the weight bearing joints, such as the ankles, hips, or knees.
Though there is no cure for the disease, through treatment and the use of daily living aids, patients can reduce their symptoms and slow the progression of the disease.
The symptoms of arthritis include pain, stiffness, and inflammation. These symptoms can further lead to reduced mobility. A cane is an important living aid, as it relieves the arthritic joints from the stress of walking and standing. A cane takes up to 20% of your body's weight off of the joints.
Canes give you additional support, improving balance and reducing your risk of falling. Even before serious problems with mobility start to affect daily life, using a cane can help to prevent permanent damage to the joint caused by unnecessary strain.
Have your cane adjusted for height so that you'll have the right fit. In order to select the right size, stand up straight and the top of the cane should reach your wrist. Hold the cane on your stronger side for the best support. When going up the stairs, use your good side first, followed by the weaker side. When going down stairs do the opposite, your weak side, followed by your stronger side.
Unless you were born with three hands, you may find using a cane is not easy at first. We often need both hands during a day for various tasks. A universal cane wrist strap will help you to overcome some of the challenges of using a cane. It eliminates the need to look for a place to lean your cane when you need both of your hands.
With the wrist strap in place, you can just release the cane and you will be free to find your wallet, unlock a door, answer the phone, or anything else you may need two hands for. Like a camera strap, a cane strap prevents you from dropping your cane, saving your joints from the added stress of bending to pick it up. Cane straps give you peace of mind, security, and convenience, keeping your cane where you need it when you need it.
Most canes come with a cane strap, but if yours doesn't, purchasing one will increase your safety and prevent you from losing your cane. They are cheap and the help they offer makes a big difference.
