Cane with seat?

Recommended Posts

I know there's been some discussion about a cane with a seat, but as you know the search feature is not very helpful!

 

If you've used one what would you recommend?  My big butt needs to fit fairly comfortably :) .

 

TIA,

Fern

you'd be better off with a rollater.   the cane seats are not very stable and are  on the smaller diameter.

Why don't you go to a hospital supply store and try them out?  EM

Thanks, but I really want a cane with a seat.  Guess no one use's one.

I own one.  The one I have was about $22 on Amazon.

 

The height is not adjustable, and it has 3 legs.  It folds someone flat and then you spread it into a tripod for using as a seat.  Not comfortable, but works for standing in long lines.  Not appropriate if too heavy.  I’m 5’9” and about 190lbs.  

 

It is not all that great as a cane or as a seat, but works for a short time for either.  

I use it when I will be standing in line for 20 minutes or so.  For $22, good enough.

Thanks.  That's the kind of thing I'd be using it for.  I can sit and walk okay, but standing in one place is not good!  What brand is yours?

Mine is a “Drive Medical” from Amazon.  

For  $22 it was worth the chance.

I bought one and only used it for one excursion one time.  I am small, 5 ' and lightweight 100 lbs. but it was not comfortable for me as a cane, since it is not adjustable, nor as a seat, because it is not really steady and not very comfortable.

 

I would much rather use a walker with a seat which is adjustable in height and much more comfortable.

Thanks for the info.  I just need something to "perch" on occasionally, so I think one of the cheapies will be fine.

I appreciate your opinions,

Fern

Thanks, Carol.  I better be aware of the weight when I buy one.  The regular cane I use weighs almost nothing 😊.
