Height and the elbow should never be straight while holding the cane keep adjusting until you get it correct now it is at wrist height with a slight bend in the elbow perfect

The optimal way to use a cane is to place it in the opposite hand of the week or involved side in this case his left lower extremity is involved to practice the correct pattern stand still and move the cane and the involved side
