Multi-functional Walking Sticks
Yes, walking sticks are mobility aids but they are also used for many other purposes.
Walking Sticks Online supply over nine hundred different sticks for various people and uses.
Take seat sticks for example, it’s a temporary seat and a stick to lean on all in one and perfect to take out with you when you know seating will be limited or unavailable (football matches, picnics and other outdoor events).
Thumbsticks, wading sticks and wooden hiking sticks are used by ramblers, walkers, hikers, hunters, fishermen and those enjoying the great outdoors. Thumbsticks are used for balance and something to lean on when out and about.
Wading sticks are used by fishermen and huntsmen to test the depth of water and to keep their balance when crossing a body of water.
Wooden hiking sticks are used for walks in the country too.
Walking canes are used on stage productions and television as props for certain characters. This is usually the fancier type of cane that is still a functional stick but is decorated or has a novelty handle.
Nordic walking uses walking poles is a popular past time with the belief that walking with poles gives your whole body a good workout and not just the legs. Walking is excellent exercise and the two go hand in hand. Nordic walking is very big in the UK and you are bound to find a group near you.
Silver or chrome plated walking sticks are used in funeral and wedding ceremonies as the traditional gentlemen’s accessory. Again, these are functional sticks but with another purpose too.
Collapsible or folding sticks are perfect to take away on holiday. The internet is full of stories about people who had a lot of problems getting on an aeroplane with their stick. Taking a folding one in your luggage at least allows you to use a stick when you reach your destination.
There are a vast array of collectible or novelty walking sticks on the market for the collectors out there. From snake heads and skulls to barn owls and elephants, you will find something for everybody.
There are many sticks available for people who do not like to use a stick or which it was invisible some days. You can buy transparent lucite canes for those invisible days, Swarovski crystal covered canes when you want to add a sparkle to your evening out and gadget sticks that hide something inside them or turn into something else.
For orthopaedic use, you can find self-standing canes and sticks with specially shaped handles for people who use them everyday and want something super comfortable to use.
Walking sticks are certainly not limited to the traditional crook handled wooden stick that you may think of first!
