Tips for Buying and Using Crutches Tag: walking poles
Crutches provide support if you're struggling to balance or need to take the weight off of one, or both, of your legs. They can feel more stable and secure than a walking stick, and are a crucial part of having some independence when needed.
Most people use non-weight bearing crutches when they need to keep weight off an injured leg, so they can heal and get back to full mobility. Non-weight bearing crutches can be used for both short and long-term mobility assistance and can help you support your weight when you’re unable to do so on your own.
Whether your situation is temporary or you’re a lifelong user of crutches, we have what you need to ensure comfort, safety, and durability for the duration of your time on crutches.
