My new cane. It is a bit bigger and much heavier than my old cane, but then, it was just an ID cane. This one is the real deal. The Orientation & Mobility instructor went over how to properly hold the cane, and the basics of how to use it. We walked up and down the street a bit. We’re going to keep doing this until I feel comfortable with it. I have discovered, though, that the way you are supposed to move your wrist to move the cane from side to side, makes my wrist snap.
