Multi-functional Walking Sticks

Print Friendly

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.
