Advantage Graphite Canes have several benefits over traditional canes:

  • Light Weight: but stronger, more rigid and more durable than aluminium.
  • Greater Sensitivity: Graphite fibres transmit superior "feel".
  • Longer Life: more than twice that of aluminium canes.
  • Flexibility and Rigidity: provides excellent support - but will flex and return to straight unlike aluminium which remains bent.
  • Highly Reflective: be seen at night for your safety.
  • Twelve Month Warranty - with proof of purchase.
  • Impact absorbing shock rings at each joint for improved feel and wear.
  • Best Overall Value: low cost, high quality, user friendly cane.

Advantage graphite canes are designed to achieve optimum balance for ease of use and comfort. At 90cm, the Advantage cane weighs only 216 grams.

Quality Advantages

  • Graphite will not corrode.
  • A rubber grip combined with an elastic loop wrist strap for safety.
  • Precision ground joints do not stick and become difficult to fold.

Queen Alexandra College can supply the following canes:

  • Collapsible Cane
  • Rigid Cane
  • Child's Cane
  • Symbol Cane
  • Support Cane
  • Telescopic Cane

The Advantage Graphite Cane can be supplied with a variety of different tips these include:

  • Standard pencil tips
  • Metal tips
  • Teardrop tips
  • Standard Roller tips
  • Jumbo Roller

Measuring a cane:

When working out what size you require, the basic rule is to measure from the floor up to the mid of the breastbone. Please note that the Jumbo Roller will add around 8-9cm to the overall length of the cane with all other tips adding around 2-3cm, so please factor this in when ordering your size. For example a 120cm cane with a Jumbo Roller will measure approx 129cm from the handle to the end of the tip.

'Carbon Fibre Canes are so much lighter!'

"I heard about the Carbon Fibre cane from Sally-Anne Cook at Guide dogs and I chose to buy one because Sally said that these canes were lighter than the standard aluminium cane and my daughter gets achy arm using her cane.

My daughter is a reluctant cane user but she is really happy with the carbon fibre cane.

The service at QAC was great. The team was friendly and the cane arrived very quickly so I would say the service was great."

‘Light, strong and durable’

"I chose to try a carbon fibre cane because I wanted a lighter alternative to my aluminium cane, but it also needed to be as sturdy and durable. 

I have now been using my new carbon fibre cane for a few weeks and I like it very much.  I do not have a lot of experience in using various cane types and therefore cannot compare it to anything else other than my one aluminium cane and both have individual features that I prefer.  

The carbon fibre cane is much lighter and therefore very manoeuvrable and comfortable to hold.  The one thing I prefer about my aluminium cane is that it does not have a handle which makes it slightly easier to grip with the type of hold I use, although it might just be a case of eventually getting used to holding a cane with a handle.

I found the customer service that I received from QAC to be very good and would use their services again."
