Has anybody got any wizard ideas on how to stop cruches sliding away from you in the when out walking in the wet?
I put alot of weight through my crutches when I walk and don’t feel safe unless I hold the crutches quite wide from me, which creates a slight ankle as I need the extra stability to keep my balance. This seems to make the crutches slide away from me in the wet. I cope OK in the dry, but when it rains alot of surfaces become very slippy, so I have to shuffle along a few inches at a time to keep my balance or fall on my bum.
Has anybody had the same experience and tried any thing to overcome the problem succesfully or not?
At the moment the best I can come up with is to use my scooter instead, but it isn’t always practical to take it.
I’d love to hear from you.
