Disability Products - Forearm Crutches Products Melbourne
Our forearm crutches provide relief and comfortable support during your recovery. Forearm crutches can prevent the pain and discomfort sometimes caused by underarm crutches. Recommended for lengthier recovery times.
Forearm crutches are encouraged for more active users, users who can already bear their own weight but require support, and users who expect to be reliant on crutches for a longer period of time. As this type of crutch relies on the user’s torso to support the weight of the body, it requires more core body strength than the underarm crutch. The advantage is in the lighter weight and greater maneuverability of the forearm style, which is usable even on unpredictable surfaces, up stairs and slopes and in small and difficult spaces. Use of forearm crutches may require more practice and control than underarm models, but they reward the user with greater comfort, mobility and independence.
