Gents' Acacia Classic Derby Walking Stick
An additional crutch or cane can play a huge role in limiting the amount of pressure placed on your knees. The Gents' Acacia Derby Walking Stick is made using the finest Acacia wood that is said to be one of the strongest and most durable types of wood around.
It doesn't hurt that the stick looks great too, with a sophisticated derby handle and finished with a polish.

The overall height of the Gents' Classic Walking Cane is 92cm (36"). This makes it suitable for most adult users.
How Does this Walking Stick Protect My Knees?
Knee pain is generally caused by too much pressure being placed on a weak or unstable knees. By providing you with an added crutch, the Gents' Derby Walking Stick improves your stability and takes the strain away from your knees. A walking stick is a more affordable alternative to our offloading knee braces, which relieve pain in much the same way.
Which Knee Supports Would Work Well With This Walking Stick?
The knee support you purchase alongside the gents' Derby Walking Stick will depend on your condition and its severity. If you have very unstable knees, you may want to pair this cane with a Hinged Knee Brace to further enhance stability.
However, if the walking stick provides all the stability you need, you may want to opt for a Compression Knee Brace for round-the-clock pain relief.
Stylish and Fashionable Derby Handle
Reputedly the invention of an earlier Lord Derby, who wanted a supportive walking stick that he could also hook over his arm, this style provides excellent support and can be held in either hand. The user’s weight is carried directly over the shaft and the hand is perfectly supported, so it can neither slip forward nor back.
It is claimed that, even if not treated, this type of wood can last up to 40 years, which means that it doesn't scratch easily and is both water and fungus resistant. Acacia wood is smooth to the touch, especially when polished, and comes in a warm brown colour with an attractive natural grain.
