Late summer at various parks, I have seen people walking with one and two poles ( not Canes ),
They were close to entering the Golden years. My two girls after seeing the people walking with them, stopped at one of the wood working shops and presented me with 2 of them.
Started using the 2 poles (right then) walking on the uneven ground and my balance was great and also endurance. Used only 1 on level ground and worked just as well.
Will use them around the grounds and walking trails here at home. Would recommend them to anyone with osteo or who has had lower extremity surgery. More support them crutches, in my opinion.
