NEWS – A couple of years ago, I underwent two total knee replacements in a four month period.  During each recovery, I first used a walker for a couple of weeks, then I switched to a cane for longer-term use.  The cane provided me with some extra stability as I walked, especially when going up stairs or stepping on/off curbs, but  it was uncomfortable to use.  Although my cane was adjustable for my height, it never seemed to be the right length for me.  When the physical therapist adjusted it for me, it seemed too short, and I felt like I was bending too far over while using it.  Walking for a while meant my neck was tired because I had to hold my head at a funny angle to see where I was going.  And I felt like my center of gravity was somewhere out in front of me because of the way I was hunched over.

If I had a Campbell Posture Cane back then, I think I would have felt more comfortable and confident using a cane.  The Campbell cane allows you to stand more upright, so you can see where you’re going.  My arm and shoulder wouldn’t have gotten so tired because I wouldn’t have been hunched over and leaning too much weight on wrist and shoulder joints that were never meant to be used that way.  You use the Campbell cane while standing upright in a more natural position, and you support your weight more naturally, too.

The Campbell Posture Cane is height adjustable to customize the fit for you.  The handle means you hold the cane more like a ski pole, which provides support and stability without putting pressure on your wrist and shoulder.  And the stability tip has texture for slip-resistant traction, and it’s big enough to improve your stability and even stand on its own so you don’t have to find a place to lay the cane when you sit down.  The cane helps you navigate sidewalks, stairs, and uneven terrain as easily as you can navigate your home’s floors.

The Campbell Posture Cane is $39.99 at their website.

  2. I don’t see anywhere on their site that gives information on what the height adjustment range is, and how that compares with the height one would use for a traditional cane. E.g., I know that because I am 64″ tall an appropriate standard cane would be around 32″, so I wouldn’t buy a cane whose minimum adjustment was 34″. I’m sure this figure is different for this cane given that the grip is so different.

  3. To find a good height, try going to a outdoor specialty store (like REI) and ask how to be fitted for trekking poles. The holding height recommended for the trek poles are the height you would want on the cane. I’ve been using my LLBean poles as a cane. If I’m on a walk, I use both. Going out & about, I only use one. I’m 5’3” and my trek pole holding height is 110 centimeter. I never liked using a cane because they were awkward and uncomfortable. I’m thinking about getting the Campbell Cane.

  4. i AM disgusted with the fact that you have this “dont care attitude about your customers; the first thing we hear on the phone is about YOU; asking the customer about a product instead of asking their name and finding what they want. Yes, we want to order the cane but we needed to speak with someone to get clarification on info about the product. Some of your inquiring is repetitious, boring and unnecessary. Also the customer is prevented from responding the way they desire to do/ plus we are forced to listen to too many offers in which we are NOT interested & do not have time to hear. You may have good products but bad manners

    1. Tymme, You might want to give this critique to the company who makes this product and not to us. We just wrote a news post about the cane to let people know that it exists. We don’t sell or provide customer service for any of the products that we write about on this site.

  5. HOW to adjust the height on the cane is not explained or shown on the instructions or anywhere on the Internet. Please advise.
