Description

smartCRUTCH™ – Best crutches for long term use!

The smartCRUTCH is patented modular design which distributes your body weight through your forearm, releasing pressure and pain from your hands, wrists, underarms and shoulders

Innovation | Comfort | Affordability | Independence | Freedom | Fully adjustable, it can be used comfortably as both a platform or forearm crutch.

smartCRUTCH ™ is a fully adjustable crutch that has been designed by a patient who was subjected to a protracted convalescence following an achilles rupture then a re-rupture following conservative treatment in a plaster cast. The morbidity and discomfort the patient experienced on conventional crutches, led the patient to design the smart CRUTCH ™.

An assessor trialled the Smart CRUTCH ™ during a 7-week convalescence following knee surgery that required partial weight bearing, he used the smart CRUTCH ™ to travel to the UK, traveling both by air and rail while also using public transport for a period of 4 weeks, all with ease when compared with the traditional crutches.
