cane geekery

December 8th, 2011 (12:07 pm)

OH MY GOD YOU GUYS Thomas Fetterman, Inc. has tornado tips for canes now I AM GEEKING OUT SO MUCH
http://www.fetterman-crutches.com/tips/cane/

They also have the best ice/snow tips I have ever seen. Even if you only use a cane sometimes for stability on the ice or something I cannot recommend these enough. They look expensive but they last so long that you wind up saving money, and my tornado tips don't even slip on wet marble. Also they absorb impact so well your wrists will thank you.

I rarely use canes anymore at all but I'm considering getting a tip anyway.

Sure thing. I really really really love these tips and so does everyone I know who switched to them.

Oh, damn, that looks awesome. We're already starting to get some of the icy bullshit in Missouri, and my cane is... it's okay, but on serious ice, I'm better off not depending on it. Add freaking /shock absorption/ and I might die and go to heaven. I don't have wrist issues most times, but in the cold, my weight bearing arm gets sore easily.

I gotta show this to my goofball, especially since it might make the dumbass use his cane more often when his knee is bugging him. He's got actual damage to his wrists, and sometimes has to choose between reducing knee pain and having the use of his dominant hand the next day.

Since I started using these tips on my crutches my wrists are COMPLETELY different. They feel like . . . well, wrists!

Serendipity^3!

My canes are ~15 years old, and rattly, and I was pondering replacement but disappointed by the Walgreen's stock choices. Thank you so much!

Okay. Fetterman is the place for tips. But canes, I would check out exquisitecanes.com. They have beautiful canes in all sorts of prices, their customer service is phenomenal, and I think the canes ARE exquisite.

Indeed, I browsed the crutches — gorgeous, really, and I love that picture of Clinton swiveling on the Tornado tipes — but was disappointed to find no canes. And then I come back here to see you've anticipated my every need!

Stylin' Thanks a bunch.

They only have 2 canes

They're at the bottom of the crutches page.

ok, when I first read this, before I got to the squeeing, I thought you meant that they had tips on using your cane in a tornado, and I wondered if it went much beyond how to use your cane to help you get into a duck and cover position...

Ooooh! You should get a tip for emergencies. Like, if something happens to your crutches and you need to use your cane in unfortunate weather conditions. Of course, you'll only have the dire need if you decide not to buy it (I swear that's how these things work!)
