I'm a big fan of trekking/walking poles.   When I was very disabled and couldn't walk more than a few feet unassisted without falling I found a pair of trekking poles gave me much better stability than a cane without the bulk and limitations of my walkers.  Although I've regained the ability to walk significant distances unassisted and fall probably less than once weekly, down from many times daily, I can walk farther, faster and push myself to deeper fatigue with poles while getting more of a whole body workout.   I got a nice pair of convertible poles for about $30 with quick swap tips, metal cores and round rubber for hiking and angled rubber for full stride walking, super light, folds compactly and easy to bring with when traveling by bicycle.  Despite the low cost they rank pretty high on my list of most valued possessions.
