These lightweight forearm crutches are available in three sizes to suit people of different height and are best suited for people seeking greater walking flexibility and for longer term use (when compared to underarm crutches).
Typically, forearm crutches require more strength in general than underarm crutches so while they promote better posture and potentially reduce strain on the wrist, they can be slightly more challenging to master. This is why forearm crutches are often better for longer term use or for people who find underarm crutches especially uncomfortable.
These crutches feature a moulded semi-circle arm cuff that wraps around the upper arm for comfortable support. They also have anatomically shaped, moulded handgrips to ensure that pressure is evenly distributed across the hand. The height of both the forearm cuff and the handgrips can be independently adjusted, guaranteeing a comfortable fit.
The crutch is made from a lightweight aluminium tube and features push button height adjustment for quick adjustment. The steel handles are strength welded to the frame making them very strong. Suitable for people weighing up to 110 kilograms.
