It is recommended to use the axillary crutch instead of the forearm elbow or a cane. Because the armpit turns, it can be used in the entire rehabilitation period of the patient, which is also safer and easy to learn. The forearm elbow turned and the cane is only applicable to rehabilitation.

How to adjust the height of the armpit cane

Adjust according to personal height, long arm, and leg length.

The position of the 侧 拄: The distance of 45 ° in front of the side foot is about 15cm.

The height of the handle: about the height of the large rotor, the elbow angle is 150 °.

Height of the turning point: 3-5cm/height -41cm tall from the armpit. If the body stands straight, the elbow joint can be slightly bent. The corner should be about 2-3 fingers under the armpit (avoid contacting too close, weight is pressed at the support, hurts the nerves and lymphatic circulation in the armpit, and even causes shoulder cuff damage).

Precautions for using crutches: 1. Pay attention to safety, do not walk on a slippery and uneven ground to prevent the side sliding down. 2. The abduction requires certain upper limbs support, so before the abduction, you need to perform some muscle training of the upper limbs accordingly. 3. Be sure to pay attention to the height of the top, not too high (too high will cause the body’s weight to be pressed at the armpit, it is easy to overwhelm armpit nerves, arms and nerves, etc.). More, it may cause discomfort in the waist/hip). 4. Don’t be overwhelmed. The recovery process should be step by step. The supplements slowly accelerate, the stride gradually increases, and the distance slowly becomes longer.
