The Russians were named ways to avoid falling on ice

Doctor Tyazhelnikov: when it is icy, you should give up your heels and walk without lifting your heels Andrei Tyazhelnikov, chief specialist in primary health care for adults at the Moscow Department of Health, said. His words are quoted by RIA Novosti.

“Prefer shoes with flat grooved soles or with low wide heels. If it still slides, then you can stick on it strips of adhesive plaster or sandpaper, “he said.

According to the specialist, as a result of falling from a height of one's own growth there is a risk of serious injuries – contusion, dislocation, sprain and fracture. He noted that fractures of the ankles in the ankle joint and fractures of the arms often occur. “It is even more dangerous when a person falls on his back. Then the blow falls on the occipital region. As a result, not only a concussion can occur, but also a fracture of the occipital bone and massive brain damage, “Tyazhelnikov said.

The specialist emphasized that it is possible to rise after a fall only if there is no acute pain. He also urged not to treat hematomas and edema on their own, but to contact doctors.

In January 2020, auto expert Ilya Pimenov said that Russian drivers make several major mistakes when braking on ice. These misconceptions can make things worse. So, he called quick pressing of the brake pedal a bad habit of motorists. This advice is found in old driving textbooks, which said that this method supposedly mimics the operation of an anti-lock braking system. Pimenov noted that in practice it is impossible to do this, because a person cannot work with a pedal so quickly.
