Crutch Tips

Follow the doctor's prescriptions with confidence
Studies Have Shown
During rehabilitation:
• patients tend to load the injured leg 2 times more than required
• 80% of patients are afraid to step on their feet after surgery and delay a timely rehabilitation
Reduce the risks of complications
With smart crutches, your attending physician can monitor the course of rehabilitation and help avoid complications

d) fracture of the intramedullary shaft
e) rupture of the wire seam
Fracture of the latch:
a) deformation of the plate
b) deformation of the intramedullary shaft
c) deformation of the locking screws of the intramedullary retainer
Lock deformation:
a) loosening of osseous retainer screws
b) migration of screws or spokes
c) loosening of intramedullary retainer locking screws
d) loosening of the intramedullary shaft

f) teething of wire seam
Aseptic loosening of retainer elements:
Complications related to limb-fixing devices
Late load complications

Real Cases
Complications due to non-adherence to rehabilitation recommendations
Repeated osteosynthesis of the tibia with bone grafting plate
Dislocation of the endoprosthesis head
Muscle atrophy
Endoprosthesis displacement
Immobilization osteoporosis
An operation was performed on the tibia. There was an open comminuted fracture of both bones of the lower leg with a mixing of fragments. A plate was installed on the tibia. I was allowed to apply a full force on the injured leg, and the plate burst. I underwent a second operation with bone grafting and another plate.
I was diagnosed with Coxarthrosis of the head of the hip joint. I couldn't walk much during the illness because it hurt. That caused weakness in the muscles around the joint. After the operation, I quickly returned to my routine, but at some moment something seemed to click in my hip. I saw flashes in my eyes because of the pain. The leg became shorter, and it hurt like hell to stand on it. It turned out to be "Dislocation of the head of the endoprosthesis" due to the excessive load.
After the operation, I was afraid to step on my foot for a long time. I didn't want to damage the metal structure. The leg became noticeably thinner, and it was very difficult to restore the muscles. An injured leg quickly got tired after any activity.
I had endoprosthetics. I started to apply force on my leg right after leaving the hospital. As a result, it's already been a year, but I have not recovered yet. And probably I won't succeed with the rehabilitation in the future. Due to the displaced endoprosthesis, the femur clings to the iliac bone. I cannot sit for a long time because my leg becomes numb. I cannot walk for a long time, for the same reason. This is not what I expected from the operation!
Due to the lack of static and dynamic loads on the injured limb, immobilization osteoporosis developed, accompanied by pseudarthrosis. There was an operative treatment - transosseous osteosynthesis. From my experience, I know that it's crucial to follow a doctor's recommendations.
