Graces,
What is going on? You just asked "Anyone have tips for traveling by plane when immobile in a wheelchair?" https://www.agingcare.com/questions/anyone-have-tips-for-traveling-by-plane-when-immobile-in-a-wheelchair-440931.htm

If you or your father is "immobile in a wheelchair", then why do you need to know about the "Best Canes"? Is the cane for yourself? Please give us more details and information. Thanks.
Anyone who really needs a cane should have one fitted by an OT or someone qualified to evaluate their abilities, but before graduating to a rollator my mom's friend swore by her quad canes.
Just make sure it can stand up by itself. My mom's cane was always falling over to the floor because it wasn't a quad cane.

I can't tell you what kind of cane to get for therapeutic reasons, but I can tell you where to find a huge choice of styles of canes that make you feel pretty (or handsome), once you know what you need. When I realized I needed a cane for balance, I decided to treat it as an accessory. I got mine from a catalog called "Fashionable Canes." You can order by mail and they'll cut them to the proper length for you. Some are really pricey, some are economical. Mine is a clear lucite cane with silver colored collar, and cost $36. I've had lots of compliments on it, even from a young hipster on the street last week ("Cool cane, lady!")
