Crutches, Triceps

Definition : Crutches mimicking the action of the triceps muscles designed to provide the user with additional support while walking. These crutches resemble the axillary crutch, but ends proximally at the midarm level. They usually consist of a shaft that bifurcates partway up from the distal tip; they also include additional bands (i.e., for the arm to ensure that the elbow remains extended despite upper extremity involvement); an upper cuff to contact the upper third of the arm below the fold of the underarm; a lower cuff placed below the elbow to avoid making contact with it; and a rubber tip(s) at the distal end that meets the floor. Triceps crutches (also known as Warm Springs crutches) were originally designed for polio patients; currently they are mainly intended for use by patients with upper-extremity deficits.
