Canes, Walkers, Crutches
We give special attention to the most important room in the house for safety.
Navigating the bathroom is at the top of the priority list for safety modifications.
Canes are the most widely used assistive device—in 4 million U.S. homes.
Canes come in many styles to support your needs, with looks that suit you. Canes support up to 25% of a person’s weight and may prevent falls. The two types of canes available are single-point canes and quad canes.
A single-point cane provides minimal support during ambulation and is appropriate for people who have slightly decreased balance, poor endurance, poor coordination, or muscular weakness.
A quad cane has four points in contact with the ground, providing more stability than a single-point cane. Quad canes are available with either a wide or small base. People with significant muscle weakness in both the arm and leg on one side of the body, which often happens following a stroke or brain injury, may benefit from the use of a quad cane.
The different materials used in the shaft of a cane can change its weight and feel. Traditional wood is relatively heavy, while aluminum and carbon fiber are much lighter.
When you need to keep weight off one leg, crutches it is!
Underarm crutches (also known as axillary crutches) are by far the most commonly used type of crutch. They require minimal training and substantially less upper extremity strength than other types of crutches and are generally less expensive. Crutches are most likely to be the appropriate walking aid when a person must not bear any weight on one leg, as would be the case with a broken leg, ankle, or foot. We also have a number of knee roller aids that allow you to more safely ambutlate than crutches.

A wide variety of walkers to meet your needs.
Almost 2 million people in the United States rely on walkers for their mobility needs. Since their introduction more than 200 years ago, walkers have changed dramatically. We also have walkers designed for specific medical needs such as a stroke, parkinsons, arthritis, etc.
Originally designed as temporary rehab equipment, walkers have been modified for use in the home and features have been added like wheels, seats, and brakes, along with convenient accessories such as detachable baskets, trays, and walker bags. Kohll’s has whatever you need!
We also offer walker repair services.
