A quad cane is a mobility device that aids walking and mobility. It is similar to a standard cane, but it

 has a metal base on the bottom with four small feet that extend off the base. These feet have rubber caps that help reduce slippage on the floor. Quad canes are usually made of lightweight aluminum and are adjustable with a small push button. Quad walking sticks are very useful for the elderly or those recovering from illness and need extra support. The quad legs provide a better stability than single leg sticks. The main reason to use a quad cane instead of a regular cane is that a quad cane provides better stability than a regular cane for some users. A quad cane is often prescribed for patients who have been using a wheeled walker, and can progress to a device with less support. It may be used for patients who use a wheeled walker, but need to go upstairs, and can’t do that with a walker. Quad canes are good choices for those who go outdoors and for those who walk on carpeting, cement or rough surfaces, and need support for balance and stability. Patients who have conditions, such as a stroke, which cause imbalance and weakness, or who have had hip replacement surgery often use quad canes as prescribed.

A Quad Cane has four small feet that are used to give added support, using a single point cane due to balance. Quad Canes come in both large base and small base depending on the balance or whether using this during rehabilitation therapist may recommend one over another. Large base Quad canes simply extend their legs a little further away from the base of the cane giving a larger platform and requiring less balance on the part. Types of Quad Canes:
There are basically two types of quad canes: wide and narrow base quad canes. Wide base quad canes have a larger base where the four legs are attached. This helps provide more support and improved stability while walking. A wide base quad cane is heavier and may be more difficult to maneuver.
A narrow base quad cane has a narrower base where the legs are attached. Although this provides less support than a wide base quad cane, it is easier to lift and maneuver while walking.
