How to Choose a Forearm Crutch
Shorter than standard walking crutches, forearm crutches are equipped with a cuff that adds complete support and stability while in use. While other crutches are positioned beneath the armpit, these forearm crutches evenly distribute weight throughout the arms, resulting in a less painful user experience. If you're searching for a smaller, more lightweight crutch that is portable and easy to maneuver, a forearm crutch may be the ideal choice for you. There are a couple of different styles to choose from when it comes to selecting a forearm crutch. There are several different types of forearm crutches available to suit a variety of different needs. Some of these styles include the following:
- The Smart Crutch is a crutch that makes it easy to stand and sit while using, and articulates movements between standing and sitting quite easy and pain-free.
- The Euro Style crutch has a unique, angled design and standard forearm crutches that include a forearm cuff to keep the crutch completely in place.
Forearm Crutch Materials and Designs
Forearm crutches require a little bit more exertion than underarm crutches, but allow for a much higher and more comfortable level of control over movement. If you're a fairly active patient, then a forearm crutch may be the most optimal choice for you.
Crutch Tips and Fit: Crutch tips are usually constructed with a rubber, slip-resistant tip. These crutches have a rubber tip that supports weight while keeping the entire crutch balanced as you walk. Because such a high level of pressure is placed on crutch handles, some handles come equipped with special handles and extra padding that effectively reduce stress and make walking much easier to grip. Offering greater security and comfort to the user, these handles are simultaneously comfortable and easy to use.
