Durable and lightweight underarm crutches available in three sizes to suit people of differing heights this design is best suited for people with limited upper body strength or for short term use only (when compared to forearm crutches).

Typically, underarm crutches are easier to master and require less upper body strength than forearm crutches. They are usually a better option for people who have trouble with balance or coordination. Long term use of underarm crutches, however, can cause discomfort regardless of underarm padding and may encourage bad posture.

These crutches feature comfortable padded underarm support and padded handgrips for maximum comfort. The height of both the underarm support 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 base of the crutch is fitted with a replaceable rubber tip for good grip and long lifespan.Suitable for people weighing up to 136 kilograms.

Three sizes are available, with the following as a rough height guide:

  • Small for people 1.4 metres > 1.6 metres in height
  • Mediumfor people 1.6 metres > 1.8 metres in height
  • Large for people 1.8 metres > 2 metres in height


The two main types of crutches are forearm crutches and underarm crutches each catering to different user needs. We recommend you consult your local healthcare professional to determine which model is best for you. You may want to consider the following factors when considering the right option:

Strength Both underarm and forearm crutches require upper body strength from the user. You will be supporting your weight with your arm, shoulder, and chest muscles. However, forearm crutches tend to require more strength in general. These are great for long-term users, who can build up the muscle mass and strength they need, but for the short term underarm crutches may be easier to use. If you have limited upper body strength, you will want to try underarm crutches.

Posture Posture is one very important factor to consider when choosing crutches. Many first-time users of underarm crutches tend to slouch over their crutches, and this can be a hard habit to break, eventually leading to strain and muscle pain. Forearm crutches, however, encourage good posture in their users- the taller and straighter a person stands, the easier their crutches will be to use. If you are worried about posture, you will want to try forearm crutches.

Coordination Underarm crutches are generally easy to master, as they have one basic possible gait. Forearm crutches can be more difficult to coordinate, and often require the consultation of a physical therapist to fully master. However, forearm crutches allow for a greater variety of walking styles and gaits, and are more stable on rough or uneven terrain. If you have trouble with balance and coordination, you will want to try underarm crutches. If you require more flexibility from your crutches, you will want forearm crutches.

Comfort Forearm crutches feature a cuff under the elbow which helps reduce strain and keeps some of the pressure off the wrist while in motion, making these crutches comfortable and easy to use. Underarm crutches, however, press against the side of the body when used, often leading to soreness and abrasions no matter how much padding they feature. If comfort is your main concern, you will want to try a pair of forearm crutches.

Underarm Crutches

Underarm crutches are very easy to figure out for most new users, but are designed for short-term use. Examples may include recovering from a fractured ankle or a post-operative lower extremity joint like a total knee arthroplasty. The Days Underarm crutches conveniently come in three different sizes, but each type is not restricted by permanent height settings. Each crutch has two height settings: one for the lower body and one for the under-arm to hand length. The weight capacity is for up to 300 lbs, which is excellent for a wide range of body types. For persons who have a history of falls or additional medical conditions that compromise balance and muscle coordination (i.e. multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, arthritis, vertigo, visual deficits, paralysis/paresis, etc.), consult with your doctor or a physical therapist prior to using any crutches for the first time.
