It is very important to have the walking stick or walker at the correct height for use. If the height is incorrect then the support will not be adequate, or may cause discomfort. For example, if the walking stick is too high, this will result in the user elevating his/her shoulders, therefore reducing balance and comfort. Over time height measurements and user posture will change so if the same walking stick is being used for a long time, consult a healthcare professional to determine if the height is still correct.
