Will This Product Work for You?
The iWalk2.0 is a useful solution for many people, but it will not work for everyone. This guide is intended to prevent confusion as to whether or not a hands free crutch is a good solution. Some things to consider are activity level; type of injury; and height, weight and age. To find out if the hands free crutch would work for you, ask yourself the following questions:
- Before your injury, could you walk up and down stairs without any kind of assistance? If so, move on to the next question. If not, the iWalk2.0 may not be the right solution for you.
- Are you able to balance on the non-affected leg? If you can balance for 30 seconds or more, then move on to the next question.
- How would you describe your activity level: high, average or low? If you answered low, the iWalk2.0 may not be right for you. For all other answers, move on to the next section.
Type of Injury
- Are both legs injured? If so, then the iWalk2.0 may not work well for you. If the injury is only to one leg, move on to the next question.
- Is your injury below or above the knee? If the injury is below the knee, move on to the next question.
- Does your knee bend to 90 ° without pain or discomfort? If the answer is yes, move on to the next question.
- Is your unaffected leg fully functional? If the answer is yes, move on to the next question.
- Do you have an ACL tear, MCL tear, patella condition, hamstring tear, groin injury, piriformis injury, IT band issue, illiopasoas, or a diabetic ulcer? If you do, this product may not be right for you. If you do not experience these conditions, move on to the next section.
Height, Weight and Age
- Are you over 55? If the answer is yes, then the iWalk2.0 may not be right for you, depending on your activity level and dexterity.
- Are you between 4'10" and 6'6"? If the answer is yes, move on the next question.
- Are you under 275 lbs.? If the answer is yes, move on to the next question.
- Is the circumference of your thigh less than 27 inches? If the answer is yes, move on to the next section.
If you didn't meet one of the conditions above, but still believe the iWalk2.0 is right for you, it is recommended to contact an iWalk technician. Be sure to watch instructional videos before making a purchase decision.
