Crutches are often needed for medical reasons or for decreased mobility. Compared to canes, they take a lot more body pressure, so they need to be chosen carefully to fit your exact needs. There are many styles to choose from, but height is probably the most important consideration when making your selection.
There are several types of crutches on the market, and we have a wide selection of every style. If you’re new to crutches there are some different types to know about before deciding which model is best for your situation. Crutches tend to be subject to high amounts of body weight, so they need to be the type that will support that weight. One of the most popular styles is the elbow crutch, or those that are used by your forearm. There are also axial crutches, which fit under your armpit. Whichever style you choose, be sure that they are the correct height.
