If the elderly feel knee pain, bone spurs, or even knee degeneration, they may consider using crutches as an aid!
Crutches are mainly used to bear part of the pressure on the feet with the hands, and can also prevent falls. Before the elderly use crutches, it is best to receive an evaluation from an occupational therapist. The occupational therapist will choose a suitable crutch based on the elderly's balance ability and physical condition.
Common crutches are divided into "single-legged".
"Three legs". Three-legged crutches are more stable and suitable for elderly people with minor strokes. The correct way to use a cane is to hold the cane between your index and middle fingers and hold it tightly. The height should be set near the hip joint and at an angle of 30 degrees to the arm. As for the maintenance method of crutches, wipe them with a damp cloth and pay attention to whether the anti-slip rubber particles are worn. If they are worn, they need to be replaced immediately.
Japan's Ichigo's three-legged walking stick adopts a small three-legged plastic lamp design. It is as light as a single leg and is stable. This time it is specially recommended to everyone.
