Are Your Crutches Ready for Spring?

Are your crutches ready for Spring?

Here are some steps you can take to get your crutches ready for spring:

1. Check the condition of your crutches: Look over your crutches for any signs of wear and tear, such as cracks or frayed straps. If you notice any damage, you may need to replace your crutches.

2. Adjust the height of your crutches: Make sure the crutches are set to the correct height for you.

3. Clean your crutches: Wipe down your crutches with a damp cloth to remove any dirt or grime that may have accumulated on them.

4. Lubricate moving parts: If your crutches have any moving parts, such as the adjustment mechanisms, apply a small amount of lubricant to ensure they move smoothly.

5. Replace worn out tips: Check the tips of your crutches to make sure they are not worn out. If the tips are worn, replace them with new ones to ensure you have good traction on slippery surfaces.

6. Replace worn out padding: Check your hand pads, arm pads, etc. to make sure they are in good shape and comfortable for your use.

7. Practice using your crutches: If you haven't used your crutches in a while, take some time to practice using them again before you need to rely on them for daily activities. This will help you feel more comfortable and confident when you need to use them.
