   ⑤ two-point walk: One side of the armpit and contralateral foot lateral extension at the same time, and then the remaining axillary Shui and then stretched out.

   ⑥ walked over: the method is similar to the pendulum step, but the feet do not drag the ground, but in the air before the swing, so large pace, speed, the patient's trunk and upper limb control force must be better, or fall easily .
