Types Of Crutches
Depending on the type of injury you have and the duration you require crutches for, the type you hire will be different. There are three main types of crutches:
Axilla or underarm crutch – positioned around 5cms below the underarm, these crutches are designed to have your weight distributed through your arms to the axila bar or handpiece. They are good for short term use and take little practice to master, they can cause issues with posture however.
Forearm or elbow crutch – These crutches feature a forearm cuff and handgrip, they allow for better posture, but require more practice to use well. They are best suited for longer term use.
Gutter crutches – These crutches allow you to balance your weight through your forearms in a padded horizontal cuff. They are ideal for those who have injuries or difficulties with arthritis in their hands.
