Measuring and using crutches




"Walking aids are used by a variety of people. This includes people recovering from injury, people with  reduced balance strength and endurance, or people with pain or instability in any weight bearing joint used in walking.

The choice of walking aid should suit a person’s abilities and personal requirements. It is recommended to seek the assistance of a physiotherapist in this process.

A physiotherapist is also able to provide advice and training in the correct use of the device.
