Hints and Tips :
2. Location – Pick an environment that allows you to take as many steps as possible without turning around or navigating around objects. Ideally, you will have a wall or rail to give you confidence. Hallways work well.
3. Surface – Hard level surfaces are the best! Definitely avoid padded carpets for learning
4. Be confident! When walking on the crutch, commit all your weight onto the crutch. Don’t favor your crutch leg – just walk normally. You’ll learn way faster if you don’t baby it.
