Crutches - Elbow & Forearm

Crutches are invaluable mobility tools that provide stability and assistance especially for those undergoing a healing process. In this guide, we will explore the various types of crutches for sale and provide valuable insights to consider when selecting the right mobility aid.

1. Underarm Crutches: Traditional Support for Upper Leg Injuries

Underarm crutches, also known as axillary crutches, are the classic choice for individuals with upper leg injuries. These crutches feature:

  • Padded Underarm Supports: The underarm rests are padded for user comfort and to reduce the risk of pressure sores.

  • Hand Grips: These provide a secure hold and are typically adjustable to accommodate different user heights.

  • Adjustable Height: The height of underarm crutches can usually be adjusted to ensure proper fit and weight distribution.


2. Forearm Crutches: Enhanced Comfort for Lower Leg Injuries

Forearm crutches, also known as elbow crutches, offer improved comfort and support for those with lower leg injuries. These crutches feature:

  • Cuff Support: Instead of underarm rests, forearm crutches have cuffs that fit around the forearm, providing better weight distribution.

  • Hand Grips: Like underarm crutches, hand grips are adjustable for a secure hold.

  • Stability: Forearm crutches often provide enhanced stability and control, which can be particularly beneficial for lower leg injuries.


3. Knee Scooters: A Convenient Alternative for Non-Weight-Bearing Injuries

Knee scooters, or knee walkers, are an excellent alternative to traditional crutches for individuals with non-weight-bearing leg injuries. They provide:

  • Comfortable Seating: Users rest their injured leg on a cushioned platform, reducing discomfort and strain.

  • Steering Handlebars: These scooters are equipped with handlebars for steering and control, offering a smooth and convenient mode of mobility.

  • Braking Mechanism: Knee scooters typically feature a reliable braking system for added safety.


Considerations When Buying Crutches:

a. Injury Type: Identify the specific type and location of the injury to determine the most suitable type of crutches.

b. Mobility Needs: Assess the individual's mobility needs, including whether they require non-weight-bearing support or enhanced stability.

c. User Comfort: Prioritize products that offer user comfort, including cushioning, adjustability, and ergonomic design.

d. Weight Capacity: Ensure that the chosen crutches can safely support the user's weight.

e. Durability: Our crutches are crafted from high-quality materials for longevity and stability.

f. Safety Features: Prioritize products with essential safety features, such as non-slip tips, stable frames, and secure locking mechanisms.
