Safety in design Mr Rolfe's answer to his own question ‘a man has injured his right leg and uses a walking stick. In which hand should he hold it for maximum relief?’ (Vo1.73 No. 10 May 1995) is, based on experience of a broken leg: He holds the stick in the right hand when standing and in the left hand when walking. When standing, this enables him, if necessary, to take all the load off the injured leg. When walking, the good (left) leg is necessarily clear of the ground half the time. By holding the stick in the left hand in contact with the ground during this time the total load is shared with the bad leg. Trying to do this with the right hand will merely throw him off balance. If the injured leg cannot take approximately half the total load he will have to use crutches. Verulam
