Walking aids are supported by equipment that allows people with inflexible legs and feet or even unable to walk to take care of themselves and go out for a walk like normal people.

For some elderly people with leg and foot inconvenience, patients with balance dysfunction, and those with injured legs and feet, walking aids are particularly important. Walking aids can support their weight strongly, maintain their balance, and ensure their safety while recovering.

If your left foot is injured and you need to use an elbow cane, which hand should you use for crutches?

Most people choose to use the left hand, that is, "the ipsilateral upper extremity of the affected side of the lower extremity" use elbow crutches. The reason is often "Which leg is not easy to use, you have to help support it"! This reason seems very reasonable, but it ignores a more important issue. When we humans walk, the swing direction of the upper limb is the same as the direction of the opposite lower limb. In short, it is the right when the left leg is moved. Swing the arm forward, and swing the left arm forward when stepping the right leg. Therefore, if the injured person uses the elbow crutch with his left hand (the upper limb on the same side), there will only be two results when he steps:

One is the "exploratory" pace, but it can't really move forward.

The other is the "Yi Shun Kuai" method. The gait of a straight turn or a straight side, in addition to seeming a bit funny, more importantly, this kind of progressive state is not stable, which will cause the center of gravity above the torso to swing too far, the center of gravity is unstable, and the gait is natural It is also difficult to stabilize, which poses a risk of falling for people who need to use walking aids to walk.

The correct way is to use the right hand, because we should first try to follow the "natural walking attitude", so that when we step out of the left leg (lower limb of the affected side), the right hand should also swing forward. During the support period after stepping out of the leg, Since the left leg cannot be effectively supported due to pain, the right hand needs to use an elbow to assist in supporting the left leg.
