How to choose the old crutches
Mar 19, 2018

Choice of attention

1. handle:

The handle of the stick can't be too slippery and comfortable to ensure that the old man can use it at any time. An old man with arthritis or apoplexy can make a special handle under the guidance of a doctor. When the old man straightens up and grips his crutches and legs, the arm should have a 30 degree angle with the crutches. If the crutches are too long, the handle will lift the wrist too high, so the old man will feel uncomfortable when he holds them, and is not suitable for long time use. The hand length of the crutches should exceed the width of the palm of the hand so that the old man can hold the hand bowl more relaxed.

2. single or multiple feet:

The appropriate length is very important. If it is too long, it will make the body lean and easily lead to the insoles of the old man's foot. If it is too short, it must bend down and bend forward. Long term use will make up bad effects such as low back pain or humpback. The most appropriate height should be attention stand, hands down naturally, stick from the ground to the skin between the wrist stripes of height.

5. the weight and material of crutches:

A heavy, it would be laborious; light, holding will also have erratic feeling, feel is not practical, generally speaking, the weight 250 to 350 grams as well. Stainless steel, strong and durable, holding in the hands of a sense of stability, strong and not easy to deform.

Matters needing attention

The bottom of the crutches must be rubbers, rubber and ground. The friction force is very large. It can keep the crutches on the ground light and stable, and will not slide, and check whether the rubber is worn or not, so that it can be changed at any time.
