Forearm Crutches are Crutches used to help patients with a foot or leg injury regain mobility. A forearm crutch is shorter than a normal Walking Crutch and is not positioned under the arm pit. Instead, the Forearm Crutch has a cuff that goes around the forearm for stability and a hand grip for moving the forearm crutch in the direction of travel. The cuff on the forearm crutch is made of plastic or metal and is either a half-circle or nearly a full circle with a V-type opening that facilitates the forearm slipping into the cuff. The leg of the forearm crutch is often telescoping to accommodate the differing heights of patients. Forearm Crutches are available for purchase in the following options: Heavy Duty Forearm Crutch and Lightweight Forearm Crutch. The Forearm Crutch is sometimes referred to as a Canadian Crutch or Elbow Crutch. Many orthopedic surgeons prefer the Forearm Crutch over the traditional walking crutch because of its easy handling and smaller size. Using a crutch regularly helps the recovering patient exercise muscles and provide rehabilitation.
