Re: tips for crutches with snow on the ground
See if you can get rides while you are outside... unless there is icy snow, you should be ok cause the ground is rough enough to keep you from slipping. The problem comes when you go inside buildings with hard floors and wet crutch tips. If you walk, putting all your weight on them, you will most likely slip, which is bad. This is not as big a problem if you are PWB cause you can usually catch yourself. So, I found that when I went inside, wiping my crutch tips on the toes of my shoes dried them off enough to keep me from slipping. I came back from spring break after having ankle surgery, and in snowed three inches in MARCH!! I was not happy, but survived trapsing through it... you will be ok. Good luck!!!
