Dynamo Cyclone Cane On Stairs
DYNAMO Cyclone Cane – Which is an walking cane in USA.
Today we are talking about how to use a cane on stairs so I had a single point Dynamo Walking Cane with me here and I'm going to demonstrate how you go downstairs using a rail and a cane now when you go down the stairs or up the stairs for that matter it really doesn't matter which side of the body in regards to your injured leg the cane is in the main point is is that you have some support on both sides of the body when you're going up or down the stairs unlike when you're walking with a cane and it needs to be on the opposite side of the injured foot and if you need a refresher on that take a look at the video on how to walk with a cane so let me demonstrate how to come down a set of stairs so what you're going to do is you're going to hold on to the rail you're going to put the cane down and you're gonna lead down with your injured or weak foot first and then bring your good foot on down okay so you're gonna put the cane down bring your bad foot down first and then the good foot okay one more time here we're going to come down first with the bad foot and then the good foot.

Now we're going to take a look at how to walk out the stairs with a cane so again I have my cane which is an Walking Cane for Womens and my hand over here at the rail on this side it doesn't matter which side the cane is in just so that we have support on each side of our body as we go up or down the stairs so what you're going to do when you're going up you're going to lead up with the good foot first so you leave the cane on the bottom step you're going to put your good foot up you're gonna kind of give it a little push on the king and bring your injured leg up okay so you're going to lead it up again with the good foot push up and come on up with your injured leg in the cane now on occasion people who will want to bring the cane up off the stairs first I'm ok with that I like to leave it on the stair the step that you're coming off of because it is support for your injured leg and your injured leg is remaining down while you're moving your good leg up so this is what it looks like here again some people like to put it up here it's kind of the patient's preference but I prefer to keep it down here because it's actually supporting your injured leg so that's how you go up the stairs also how you go down with stairs with a cane that's it for today from adaptive equipment corner have a great day and don't forget if you can't do it adapt it.
