Here is a variety of tools that can make life easier for and more comfortable for users of crutches and walking sticks.
How do you use crutches?
First and foremost, the crutches must be placed at the correct height . To start walking with crutches, you need to gradually shift your weight to your healthy leg . Move the cranks in front of you to a point where you can maintain stability. For the swing, move your weight from your healthy leg to your arms, swinging your body through the crutches as the crutches absorb the weight. Place your healthy leg at a point forward, again maintaining stability , and transfer your weight back to the leg. Then move the cranks forward to repeat the movement. Have someone assist you while using the crutches on the stairs.
When going down, place the crutches on the next step, then step down with the right leg.
When going up, first step with the right leg up and then bring the crutches up.
If you are using only one crutch, the walking techniques start by placing the crutch under the arm opposite your weaker leg. Move the crutch and your weaker leg forward simultaneously. Then take a step with your stronger leg.
