Underarm crutches are one of the most popular types of crutches used by people who are healing from an injury or experiencing a degree of disability. One of the benefits of this type is that they are easy to use without a lot of training, upper arm strength or practice.
Underarm crutches are often used by people who are experiencing some sort of injury or disability. They are used by putting the pads at the top underneath the armpits. The hands grab onto the grips. Underarm crutches are simple to learn to use and are ideal for people with reduced strength in the upper arms. You have several choices when choosing which style suits you best, but the important point to look for is the size or the possibility to make adjustments. Some of the options include different sizes, steel or aluminum construction, spring assisted shock absorption and non-skid tips.
