--- "DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY ------- PURPOSE: Adaptation of an axillary crutch to allow a high upper extremity amputee in a non- weightbearing leg cast to ambulate with crutches. The crutch adaptation consisted of a figure eight harness which went around the patient's shoulders and fastened with velcro around the top of the crutch to hold it under the arm; and a frame to hold the crutch 6 inches from the cast so it moved with the leg and did not scissor in front of the patient. Includes photographs. SKILLS REQUIRED: Assembly.
