How to Use the Crutches:
Walking – Leaning on your

slightly wider than shoulder width apart. Supporting your weight with
your hands (not your armpits), carefully swing your good leg forward,
placing this foot just in front of the crutches. Keep your head and

possible safety hazards such as cords, water or oil on floor, rugs, or

Sitting down – Back up to the seat until you feel the backs of your
legs touching it. Hold both crutches by the hand grips in the hand on
the injured side. Hold onto the seat with the other hand and lower
yourself slowly, bending at the hips. Unless authorized by your
healthcare provider, keep your injured leg off the ground and your
weight on your good leg.
Standing up – Make sure that
your seat is secure. If using a wheelchair, ensure that the brakes are
engaged. Move forward until you are sitting at the edge of the seat.
Place the stronger foot on the floor. Hold the crutches by the hand
grips in the hand of your injured side. Push up from the seat with the
stronger leg, keeping your head forward. When upright, place a crutch
under each arm.
