Flexyfoot 25mm Shock-Absorbing Ferrule (Black)

Why Use a Flexyfoot Shock-Absorbing Ferrule?
Whilst necessary, using a cane or walking stick can cause a number of adverse conditions, including upper body pain, pain in the arm and postural issues. The Flexyfoot ferrule is designed to absorb light shocks and bumps that the ferrule on a standard cane or stick will not.
This is perfect for users lacking confidence when using a stick or those wanting to make their current cane a little more robust over difficult and stubborn terrains.
Who Could Benefit From Using One?
Anyone looking to make their current cane or stick more stable will benefit from the Flexyfoot ferrule. The flexible and robust design will stand up to any terrain, making it viable for use on pavements, paths and grass.
What Size is the Ferrule?
This Flexyfoot ferrule has a diameter of 25mm (1"), which is measured across the width of the ferrule opening, as demonstrated in the image below. The ferrule accommodates canes with a circumference of 80mm.

Rough and Uneven Terrain Ready
Flexyfoot ferrules are designed for use on rough and uneven terrains, as they provide a level of support and stability that a standard can or stick ferrule simply cannot offer. Their thick, rubbery design absorbs all the rigour that you can throw at it, leaving you free to walk calm and confidently.
What Sticks Are Flexyfoot Ferrules Compatible With?
Flexyfoot ferrules are compatible with canes, crutches and walking sticks, provided the correct size for the stick is purchased. Simply remove the ferrule currently on a stick and attach the Flexyfoot ferrule for added support, stability and peace of mind.
Adds 5cm of Height to Your Walking Stick
The Flexyfoot ferrule uses a flexible hinge to absorb shock and improve stability, but it also adds 5cm (2 inches) of height to your walking stick. So for the best fit, your stick might have to be shorter than it would be with a standard ferrule. If your walking stick is adjustable this won't be an issue, but for wooden sticks, you may have to saw some off - see this handy guide for more detailed instructions.
