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.

"I love that I can personalise my cane!"

"My name is Aneeba. Due to having Moon Bardet Biedl Syndrome, I have always been a long cane user. Queen Alexandra College has always been really helpful and efficient every time I have needed a new cane, help or advice. I use Revolution Carbon Fibre canes as they are extremely lightweight and I love how you can personalise them with various colours." Aneeba A.

"Advantage Carbon Fibre canes are lightweight and easy to fold."

"The Revolution canes are lightweight, therefore the hand does not tire and does not snag on anything when walking. They fold and unfold easily compared to aluminium canes, especially in the winter. The carbon fibre joints prevent them from sticking." - Mr Moody

‘Advantage Carbon Fibre canes are lightweight and durable.’

"I have been a cane user for over 30 years. Most canes I have used have been heavy and clunky and would fall apart every few months.

Advantage Carbon Fibre canes are different. They are durable, well made, lightweight and thanks to their jumbo roller tip option, you can roll, rather than tap your cane from side to side. That means you always keep contact with the ground in front of you in order to gain important information such as changes in the surface you are approaching.’

There is often a stigma attached to using a cane, especially with young people or those who are recently Visually Impaired so having colour options for your cane can support overcoming the stigma and give people the confidence they need to embrace cane use and become more independent." - Paul H.
