As you get older it is not uncommon to slowly develop issues with your mobility. With age comes the possibility of arthritis, osteoporosis, and other joint issues that can affect how you get around. Falls in particular can be a major problem: every eleven seconds an older adult is treated in the emergency room because of injuries sustained by a fall. One way that can help prevent falls is to acquire a cane to improve mobility when in the home or going about town. Over ten percent of Americans aged 65 and over use a cane. Canes are the most common and most widely used mobility device in the United States. These canes can be made of different materials ranging from a variety of woods to metal. However the best material for a cane is one made of carbon fiber, a lightweight fiber made from carbonized acrylic fiber. This article explains the benefits of using a carbon fiber cane to help with your mobility.
First of all, carbon fiber is a highly durable material that is also extremely lightweight. And unlike wood, which can scratch or even break (given enough force); carbon fiber will not scratch or break. Second, not only do carbon fiber canes come in the traditional stick form, they can also appear as folding canes. Also known as collapsible canes, folding canes can be broken down into a smaller size when not in use (which makes it much easier and more convenient to store). Third, as with other canes, carbon fiber canes can be customized into different designs to make yours look unique and stylish. They can also be shaped into extra tall canes to accommodate people who are taller than average (or for any height in general).
In conclusion, carbon fiber is the ideal material to use for a cane because it is highly durable and lightweight. They can also appear as folding canes or traditional stick canes. These cans can also be customized with unique and different designs that can accommodate your specific needs. They can also be made to look stylish (no need for a cane to be plain and boring) with fun designs (like different colors or decorative patterns). No matter which form it takes, carbon fiber canes are a useful tool for improving your mobility.
