heavy duty

it is alittle heavy,but you won't have to worry,it won't break,very well built


My mom was extremely happy

The handle has a very comfortable grip and is very sturday. It is a good buy.


Heavy Man Heavy Cane

Very good. Tested the last two weeks in ice and snow. Terrible right leg so I have to lean heavily unto it. I'm 350 pounds and it's very solid. Adjusts in seconds. Nice cane and excellent value. My leg can do more in a day without becoming exhausted after a few hours.


Good Cane

This quad cane was easy to adjust, is stable and makes walking more steady. The price was certainly less than I had expected for a quad cane of this apparebt quality.


Great product

I love this cane. I have knee problems and the stability of the quad cane appeals to me. I accidently left my cane in a store cart yesterday and no one turned it in. Needless to say, I am going to buy a replacement today. I also have a single cane and don't feel comfortable with it - not as much support in my opinion. I checked the local Walgreens & CVS and the same Quad cane is almost $40.00 at both stores. The value at Wal-Mart is great!!


I love not worrying about falling. Thanks.

I love this walking cane. Being a heavy person, I worry about falling all the time, been using a walker or cane now for two years. Walker was too big and the other canes I have had did not seem to support my weight without wabbling making me scared to get up at all. At my doctors request, I started looking for a Quad Cane and found out about the weight capacity ratings. Being 300 lbs. I was at the limit for several that I looked at. I found this one by accident on Walmarts site and on a whim I ordered it site unseen. It had free shipping and I did not have to go out to get it, two good points for me. A few days went by and it went out of my mind. Then it arrived on a day that my legs hurt alot, just walking to the door was a chore. But after I opened it, I was so impressed. Very sturdy and it supported me even when I was shaking. Gave the other four canes to the local shelter and I am sold for life. Love not being worried about falling.


Too Heavy

At 5 pounds weight, this cane is not viable for a person with mobility problems.


OUT OF BALANCE

THE FOUR POST ON THE FLOOR ARE ALL UNEVEN. POORLY MANUFACTURED. I'M VERY UNHAPPY WITH THIS ITEM. IF I STILL HAD THE PAPER WORK I'D RETURN IT.


Too heavy. Base is not wide enough.

My mother is used to a regular cane. She does not use a cane straight up and down but slants it when she walks. The quad cane is hard for her to use at the slanted angle. So, she tends to carry the quad cane rather than sat it straight down and walk. It is also very heavy. It is sturdy and heavy duty though.


solid for unstable person

well built and heavy. must be on level ground to stand alone. no instructions on which is right or left. overall much better than lighter canes. very good value.


Quad Cane

Product meets expectations, but would order wider base next time. It is for a family member with Parkinson Disease, and think the wider base would give him a little better stability. Shared information gives cane users' info, not mine.


Excellent item. Would recommend it to all that.

GOOD AND STURDY. I LIKE IT. Got here in very short time. Use it where my walker won't go.


much needed item for ill friend

He is starting to use this item more each day, had to adjust both mentally and physically to the idea. Have been out and about alittle and like using it for balance. Good price, solid item, great assistance to the welfare.... Would shop Walmart again for internet shopping and pick up all worked great, thanks Vicki


GOOD BUY

THIS PRODUCT IS A VERY GOOD BUY IT IS LITE WEIGHT, COMFORTABLE AND THE GRIP ON THE HANDLE IS GREAT VERY EASY TO USE AND ADJUST I AM VERY SATISFIED WITH THIS PRODUCT:-)


Should Have Been Better

I needed a TALL cane so I hoped the extra strength of "bariatric" would make up for the extended leverage. This cane claims to support up to 500 pounds but its quad legs are not as sturdy as those on the 250-lb versions of other brands. Select Carex or Access Point brands instead. Despite its price, it won't be a bargain if you don't like it.


Good, sturdy canes

I have 2 bad knees, and wobbly gait. I checked out canes at medical supply stores several years ago, but they didn't have heavy duty quad canes. The single tip canes I tried in the stores were not strong enough to support my weight, and didn't provide any stability, and were hard on my wrists, so I put off buying canes at that time. Since then my knees have gotten gradually worse, and a month ago they got a lot worse after I carried in a large load of heavy grocery bags. Increasing my dose of joint supplements only helped a little, so I finally decided to look into canes again. I considered my needs, and did some research.\n\nI need a cane that can be height adjusted for a short person, but that can take a lot of weight, because I am overweight. I also need a quad cane for stability and strength, and an offset handle for better weight distribution, which makes me less wobbly. There were several aluminum canes that claimed to have a weight limit of 300 pounds, but I am not convinced that aluminum canes are as sturdy as they claim, so to be on the safe side, I looked for a steel cane with a higher weight limit. The only one I found on Walmart's site is this Medline bariatric cane with a claimed weight limit of 500 pounds. It has an offset handle, and quad tip base, and can be adjusted for either left or right hand use. It can also be adjusted for different heights. It has a column of ten height holes to choose from, and it is easy to change the height. It is also easy to change the handedness of the canes, but since I bought two, whoever shipped them to me was nice enough to make sure that each one was adjusted for a different hand. The original ad stated that it has foam handles, but that is incorrect. It has hard rubber handles. It only comes in black. In researching this cane, I found several different prices from different providers. I only found one price cheaper than Walmart's price, but since I only use my Walmart card for online shopping, I went with that one. All the other prices were a good bit higher, though, so it is still a very good\ndeal. Here's a list of Pros and Cons:\n\nCON: Hard rubber handle.\nPRO: The hard handle makes for a sturdier grip, is easier to clean than a foam one, and won't wear out as fast as a foam one.\n\nCON: Only comes in black.\nPRO: Black goes with everything, and you can add colorful stickers to it to dress it up and personalize it.\n\nCON: Offset handle--no cons\nPRO: Provides better stability and weight distribution, and is easier on my wrists.\n\nCON: The quad tips spread out pretty far, which can make it difficult to get around in tight places.\nPRO: The greater spread provides more stability than a single tip base, and greater ability to support someone heavy.\n\nCON: It's a little heavier than I would like. This steel model weighs about 5 pounds.\nPRO: The higher weight is due to sturdier materials and construction and I need it to be sturdy. Also, the weight is not too much for me to handle. There is an additional PRO to the weight of the cane: It provides me with mild upper body exercise when I lift them to move them forward. It also provides lower body exercise, as I am walking around more now that I am using these canes. Because they take some of the weight off my knees, there is less pain, so I am better able to get around.\n\nThese canes are really helping me, and I don't mind the hard rubber grip, as I like the sturdiness of it. And I also like the exercise it is giving me. :-D I did find during the first couple of days that I was tending to lean too far forward when I moved the canes forward. I decided that this was because the canes were set a little too short, so I fixed that by making the canes one notch longer. Now I don't feel that I am leaning too far forward when I use them. I may need to make them an additional notch longer when I put on shoes to go out, as the shoes make me a little higher than my slippers do.\n\nOne change I would suggest, at least for the aluminum canes, is to switch to a six tip base, instead of a quad tip one. The quad tip bases have too much space between the back and front tips, which makes them less side stable. Putting an additional "foot" on the sides would help fix that. Unfortunately, steel canes, which are already heavy, would be heavier with 6 tips. It might be possible to lessen the weight a little by shortening the length of the feet a little, so then even the steel canes could benefit from greater stability. I find with the quad tip steel canes I bought that I can improve the stability a little more by turning them so the outer front feet are approximately at the 12:00 position, instead of at the front outer corner when walking. So far this hasn't bothered my wrists any. I think the offset handle and hard rubber grip help protect my wrists from strain when I do that.\n\nIf you have arthritis in your hands, you would probably do better with a cane that has a foam grip. If you have trouble lifting things that are a little heavy,\nyou should probably go with an aluminum cane, but do get them with a quad tip and an offset handle. Those features are much better than straight canes, and single tip canes.\n\nBottom line: I really like these canes, in spite of their weight, and would get them again, and would recommend others get them. It is really nice to be able to get around better again, and with less pain. It has been a real mood booster for me, and the exercise side effect amuses me, so that also boosts my mood.


beyond expectations\n\nonly negative - noisy


My 88 year old father-in-law loves it. It gives him a more stable support when walking.


Sturdy cane but a little top heavy

Very nice and sturdy cane but if you don't make sure it is solid on all four legs or it will fall over when released.


This product has been very helpful to me. I'd recommend it to anyone.


My mom was extremely happy

The handle has a very comfortable grip and is very sturday. It is a good buy.
