A major medical breakthrough in walking AIDS

Generally speaking, the cane is suitable for patients with hemiplegia or unilateral paraplegia, and the forearm rod and axillary rod are suitable for paraplegia patients. The support area of the walker is large, more stable than the axillary rod, and it is often used indoors.


(1) the walking stick can only be used with normal muscle strength of the upper limbs and shoulders of the walking stick, such as incomplete paraplegia patients with hemiplegia whose healthy side and lower limbs have poor muscle strength. Patients with good grip strength and strong support of upper limbs can choose a single-legged cane, such as poor balance and coordination ability, should choose a three-legged or four-legged cane.


(2) the forearm and crutch rod (1) double lower limbs completely paralyzed (paraplegia below T10, must use a leg brace, or T4 incomplete paraplegia below, use of paraplegia orthopaedic foot patients with upper limb muscle strength reached 5), can use double turn forearm or axillary on foot; One side of the lower limb is completely paralyzed and walks with a walking stick. In case of incomplete paralysis of both lower limbs, armpit turning or forearm rod are chosen according to the residual muscle strength of lower limbs. In general, standard forearm rod is adopted for training. For example, if the patient raises the axillary rod and can walk with the hand supporting the handle, the forearm rod can be selected. When upper arm muscle strength is weak: when triceps of humerus are weakened, the supporting ability of elbow is decreased. When elbow joint stability is poor, choose the forearm rod or axillary rod with wrist joint fixation band. If the elbow joint is flexed and contracture is not straightened, a flat pole may be adopted


(3) when the muscle strength of two upper limbs is poor and the body weight cannot be fully supported, armpit support walking device should be adopted. Patients with paraplegia with normal upper limb muscle strength and poor balance ability can choose interactive walking device.
