TRIPOD CANES / THREE PRONG CANES
Tripod canes are one of the most practical kinds of canes you can find. These three prong canes feature a wider base than single tip canes, and, due to this, offer a number of distinct benefits many seniors and disabled individuals find helpful.
A tripod cane base features 3 legs; hence the alternative term three legged cane. A tripod cane is an ideal alternative to single tip or even quad canes. Here are just a few of the reasons for the tripod walking cane’s undeniable popularity.
Studies have proven that using a tripod cane is beneficial for anyone who finds balancing to be difficult. A tripod cane will help more with postural steadiness than a single tip cane. Its wider base is small enough that it shouldn’t cause tripping (as is wont to occur during while the individual is utilizing a quad cane). If you’ve been searching for a cane that is designed to keep the user balanced and steady, a three point cane may be a great option for your needs.
The three prong walking cane allows for users to walk across tar, grass, and dirt paths. It features unbelievable traction. Here’s how it works: When the user is ready to take a step, he puts the cane on the ground, and leans on it a bit. The pressure that is now placed on the cane causes it to get “pushed down” just a bit, so that the three prongs on the bottom of it become a bit more spread out, and grab onto the floor tightly. This makes the tripod cane quite sturdy. When he picks up the cane, the three prongs clench together just a bit, and when he puts it back down again, the prongs spread a tad apart. This movement modality resembles that of a duck’s webbed feet, which also spread just a bit with each step for increased grip.
Keep in mind that the diameter of the base is what determines its dependability; the wider the base is, the more supportive the cane will be. For this reason, while a tripod cane is more dependable than a single-tip cane, a quad (four pronged) cane, which usually features a larger base, will be even more supportive than the tripod cane.
