  • Axilla or underarm crutches: They should actually be positioned about 5 cm below the axilla with the elbow flexed 15 degrees, approximately. The design includes an axilla bar, a handpiece and double uprights joined distally by a single leg. They are adjustable in height; both the overall height and handgrip height can be adjusted (adjustable approximately 48 to 60 inches (12 to 153 cm).
  • Forearm crutches: (or lofstrand, elbow or Canadian crutches). Their design includes a single upright, a forearm cuff and a handgrip. The height of the forearm crutches are indicated from handgrip to the floor (adjustable from 29 to 35 inches or 74 to 89 cm).

What are some different walking patterns used with crutches aluminum?

There are several different walking patterns that an individual using crutches may use, including:

  • 2 point: the crutches and the fractured leg are one point and the uninvolved leg is the other point. The crutches and fractured limb are advanced as one unit, and the uninvolved weight-bearing limb is brought forward to the crutches as the second unit. this gait pattern is less stable as only two points are in contact with floor and good balance is needed to walk with 2 points crutch gait.
  • 3 point: this gait pattern is used when one side lower extremity (LE) is unable to bear weight (due to fracture, amputation, joint replacement etc). It involves three points contact with the floor, the crutches serve as one point, the involved leg as the second point, and the uninvolved leg as the third point. Each crutch and the weight-bearing limb are advanced separately, with two of the three points maintaining contact with the floor at any given time.
