Not perfect, but glad I bought it
There are a lot of good comments/reviews here, which have already expressed most of the advantages and shortcomings of this crutch. I have a broken ankle. The strap system holds fine, but it is hard to release, and it takes some time to get in and out of. I wish it were more like my snowboard bindings (ratchet in, release out). I can only stay strapped in it for two hours max at a time, or my leg/knee gets uncomfortable. In fact, because my ankle cast comes fairly far up my leg, I have to add padding under my knee so my lower leg will be horizontal and more comfortable when strapped in. It definitely helps to be a agile/athletic person to begin with. You have to practice with it and figure out your balance. You should always be thinking, "Should I trip, how do I go down gracefully?" I have not tripped yet, but I suspect I may at some point.

All that (and other issues) said, this thing is great. I can move around my yard and garage, and use my hands, do projects, hobbies, etc. Make no mistake, it's not like having your regular leg back, but it absolutely improves my mobility and helps keep me happy while I'm recovering. It also works your upper leg so you will lose less muscle/strength in your hip and quad. For me, it is a great addition to regular crutches, and a knee scooter (which I prefer in the house). If this in your budget, definitely consider it.

This is a great product; it just takes a little getting used to it.
The instructions are perfect and the videos are perfect. It is great to be able to walk around and have my hands free. I can't imagine walking very far in this because it would do a number on my lower back, but for getting around the house and work it is perfect.

Helpful!
Good construction except the latches are a bit difficult to use and the straps were too long. I had to trim the padding around the top strap in order to tighten the strap to fit my leg. It was especially helpful in allowing me to stand at the kitchen counter. I was able to keep up with more activities than I would have otherwise.

not for everyone
It does what it says it does, but I felt very unstable on it, and never got confident enough to walk on it without a cane or hanging on to something. I was also very aware that if I fell, there would be no way to stop myself. So I ended up sending it back.

Port Townsend, WA
useful alternative to standard crutches, could use a few design tweaks
I have a ruptured achillies and have to keep weight off right foot for around 8 weeks. Standard crutches turn you into a functional paraplegic, occupying both your hands, making it tough to do much of anything (like cook, get groceries etc). this device is very definitely has a place in one's arsenal in that it allows for movement without occupying your hands. I don't find it very comfortable for all day use and is less efficient than crutches if you have to get up and down often due to the time required to take off and put on. when walking with it you have to splay your bad leg with the Iwalk out to the side, due to the fact it feels like it is rolling under you if you try to walk more vertically (ie naturally). this could have been addressed in its design by being able to offset the foot pad about 1.5" to the right or left depending on which leg it is used. The Iwalk would be much easier to get on and off if quick release latches had been used instead of the ratcheting straps. being able to adjust the straps once, then snap them into place would save much aggravation over a few days use. all in all, the Iwalk vastly improves your ability to operate independently when you have a temporary loss of use of a foot.

Serious company
I had a problem with the shipping. They worked hard to solve it. In the end they refunded my money. Quite happy with their professional attitude.

Works well to provide hands free mobility
I am a below the knee amputee and was looking for an alternate to crutches/wheel chair while getting used to my prosthesis and for quick, hands free mobility when not wearing it. The iWalk has provided this. The design is simple and effective however the straps can create a pinch point if care is not taken and the release for the straps is a bit of a pain but overall I'm happy with the freedom of movement it has provided.

The product allowed me to go back to work early and do all the functions that I'm used to doing. I would recommend the product to anyone. Every where I go people stop me and share their injuries and how much they wished they knew about the product then. Thanks

Performs as advertised!
I ordered the iWalk-Free because I wanted a crutch device that would allow me to keep my hands free and because I needed to be able to safely navigate stairs to my home office. With this device I can definitely accomplish both. My only criticism relates to the strapping mechanisms. While they are very secure, they take some effort to undo. A better locking mechanism, such as that for ski boots, would allow for sizing and one handed fastening and unfastening!

Overall, I am very satisfied.
