What to Buy with Standard Aluminum Crutches?


How to Choose Correct Size Crutches?

  1. When standing up straight, the top of your crutches should be about 1-2 inches below your armpits
  2. The handgrips of the crutches should be even with the top of your hip line
  3. Your elbows should be slightly bent when you hold the handgrips
  4. To avoid damage to the nerves and blood vessels in your armpit, your weight should rest on your hands, not on the underarm supports

How to Use Walking Aid Crutches?

While Walking
  1. Lean forward slightly and put the crutches about one foot in front
  2. Begin the step as if going to use the injured foot or leg but, instead, shift the weight to the crutches
  3. Bring the body forward slowly between the crutches
  4. Finish the step normally with the good leg
  5. When the good leg is on the ground, move the crutches ahead in preparation for the next step
  6. Always look forward, not down at the feet

While Sitting
  1. To sit, back up to a sturdy chair
  2. Put the injured foot in front of and hold both crutches in one hand
  3. Use the other hand to feel behind for the seat of the chair or wheelchair
  4. Slowly lower into the chair
  5. When seated, lean the crutches in a nearby spot
  6. Be sure to lean them upside down as crutches tend to fall over when they are leaned on their tips
  7. To stand up, inch to the front of the chair
  8. Hold both crutches in the hand on the injured side
  9. Push the body up and stand on the good leg

While Climbing and Walking Down Stairs
To walk up and downstairs with crutches, you need to be both strong and flexible.
  1. Facing the stairway, hold the handrail with one hand and tuck both crutches under the armpit on the other side
  2. When going up, lead with the good foot, keeping the injured foot raised behind
  3. When going down, hold the injured foot up in front, and hop down each step on your good foot
  4. Take it one step at a time
  5. User may need someone to help, at least at first
  6. If a stairway is without handrails, use the crutches under both arms and hop up or down each step on the good leg, using more strength
  7. If you feel unsteady, it may be easier to sit on each step and move up or down on your bottom
