Crutch-walking gaits. Shaded areas indicate weight-bearing. Arrow indicates to advance foot or crutch. (The illustration of each gait begins at the bottom of the picture.) All gaits begin in the "tripod” position, with each crutch and both feet being the three points of the tripod.
I have been walking on crutches since I was maybe four or five. Now that i have Post-Polio syndrome it makes it tough. I have torn rotator cuppes in both shoulders and carpal tunnel syndrome in both wrist. I will not be going to get it repaired, thank you very much.
