For maximum comfort and security follow the instructions below. Height: Adjust crutch height by depressing both push-buttons, rotating foot piece, and pulling down until desired patient height is reached. To assist in doing this the foot piece has a circular ring marked on it to indicate the location of the push-button. Rotate foot piece again until BOTH push-buttons snap back into place. Handgrip: Adjust handgrip by removing the wing nut and bolt securing the handle to the crutch. Align handle to the desired set of adjustment holes, allowing an approximate 10 degree bend at patient elbow. Insert bolt into desired adjustment hole and through the handle. Tighten wing nut onto bolt. Safety check: With crutches positioned as in included diagram, confirm that patient can lean forward comfortably while resting on the underarm supports. Patient should not have to stand in an uncomfortable upright position. Ensure BOTH push-buttons are firmly in place and the handgrip wing nuts are also securely tightened. Fitting of crutches should ultimately be done by a medical professional.
USE AFTER PROPER TRAINING UNDER THE DIRECTION OF YOUR DOCTOR OR PHYSICAL THERAPIST. REPLACE CRUTCH TIPS IF WORN. KEEP HANDGRIP WING NUT TIGHTENED. USE EXTRA CAUTION ON WET AND SLIPPERY SURFACES.
