It takes two people to size a cane.
Put on your usual walking shoes.
Stand naturally as upright as possible.
Let the arms fall naturally down to the sides with a normal bend at the elbow. Do not force the arms down straight.
Have the second person measure the distance from the wrist joint down to the floor.
This distance should be the total length of your cane.
Remember, canes can be shortened but they cannot be lengthened.
Please see my other guides for sizing a walking or hiking stick.
