Design Philosphy:

Switch Sticks designs are exclusively created for Switch Sticks products, working with contemporary and award winning designers and artists. They do not believe that a walking stick needs to be dull but can add to your style and personality. Just as glasses were once limited in choice, but now available from a wide range of labels, they believe that walking sticks can also be beautiful as well as accessible.

The philosophy is to put the ‘fun’ into functional.


Choose from a range of contemporary and colorful designs;

  • Made of high grade aluminum, they have a painted maple wood handle
  • Packaged in a stylish box
  • Includes free carry bag
  • All walking sticks are adjustable and therefore suitable for most adults - they adjust from 80cm-92.5cm - and so suitable for anyone from 5ft 1” to about 5ft 10” (ladies) and men up to about 6ft 3”
  • Walking sticks should be used in the hand opposite to the affected hip/knee/leg, or if simply as a support but with no specific problems, then they are typically used in your dominant hand ie: if you write with your right hand, you will most likely use the stick in your right hand
  • If a user is petite – the sticks can be cut - up to 8cm, Switch Sticks also provides a cutting service. On special request, we supply Petite 62.5-75cm and Tall sticks 97.5-110cm
  • Optional table rest also available - perfect for when you are out and about

Sandi Rigby - After a career as a graphic artist Sandi turned to printmaking and etching, training at the Sydney Gallery School. Sandi’s work is often influenced by a landscape theme. She tries to capture the mood of the subject with colour, texture, pattern and detail, layering plates and working both realistically and conceptually. Sandi’s travels overseas also inspire her work. She was won many awards and has works hanging in galleries throughout Australia. Sandi painted a stick from our Paint Your Own kit to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis. People then started asking if we would replicate the design in our collection and so a unique Australian design ‘Walkabout’ was created.
