Best Type of Crutches


Best Height of Crutches

Finding the best type of crutches usually requires a little research; one size does not fit all!


However, at Chic Aid we have done the hard work for you and all you have to decide is which crutch best suits your personal requirements and in which stunning colour you want it in.


Crutches are used by a variety of different people, this includes; people recovering from injury, people with reduced balance, strength or endurance, or people with pain or instability in any weight bearing joint used in walking. The type of crutch should suit a person’s abilities and personal requirements and so is recommended to seek the assistance of a health care professional.


Crutches may be for you if :-



Most crutches are made from metal, either Aluminium or Steel Reinforced Aluminium for heavy-duty use.




It is very important for the crutches to be at the correct height for the user.


Elbow crutches generally have two adjustment points; one for the overall height of the crutch and another between the hand grip and the crutches cuff. A two-point adjustment is often the preferred choice with crutch users, as it allows the user to customise the total height of the crutch for a more personal feel. A single adjustment Elbow crutch would only give floor to hand grip height adjustment, which some crutch users prefer and they are usually slightly cheaper than the double adjusting crutches.


The Elbow crutch is available with two styles of cuff; open (half) or closed (full). An Open Cuff is semi-circular in shape and a Closed Cuff is an incomplete ring that prevents the forearm from slipping out of place.


Then there is the choice of handles. Elbow crutches are available with:-

Standard Right-Angled Handle – these are generally the standard style handle and are usually ridged on the underside of the handle for comfort.

Anatomic Handle – these are anatomically shaped to fit the shape of the users hand, allowing the pressure to be more evenly spread across the palm of the hand to improve comfort and grip for the user.
