Types of Crutches Explained.

Buy Quality Crutches

There are several basic types of crutches; underarm, forearm and elbow crutches. Crutches are made in all sizes, for adults anImage of a particular type of crutchd children. They are primarily used to reduce weight bearing on one or both legs, or to give additional support where balance is impaired and strength is inadequate.

The most common type of crutch in the UK is the Elbow Crutch, which has a cuff around your lower arm to keep it steady. They are generally given to people who have injuries below the waist, to help with mobility by transferring weight from the legs to the upper body.

Make sure you choose the right kind of crutch that gives you the most support and feels the most comfortable for your injury. You should think about; your strength, posture and balance, fit, comfort, ferrules and handles.

Other things to consider when buying a new crutch are;


 Consider your budget

 Research different brands and what they can offer

 Think about what features certain sticks have for example – speciality ferrules or reflectors on the handles

 Look at the materials and dimensions of different crutches, some are heavier than others

 Check out any customer ratings or reviews on the sticks you are interested in

 Consider the colour options available, the brighter the better!

 Take into account any postage and packaging charges and whether the company ships to different countries


Get good crutches Why not try Folding Crutches?


The standard crutches given by hospitals in the UK are obviously the cheapest available, due to them being free on the NHS.


They’ll do the job, but they are uncomfortable (especially for long-term use) on your hands, make a horrid ‘clicking’ noise when walking with them, and above all they a GREY and BORING!


Crutches with padded handles or anatomic (shaped, specific left and right) handles, made with quality materials can make recovery or long-term use a far more pleasant experience and is unlikely to lead to any secondary injuries. Also, it is proven that the more comfortable a person’s crutches are, the more likely they are to use them, speeding up their recovery.


Carrying standard crutches around wherever you go can be a real hassle, and storing them in crowded restaurants or on busy trains can cause no end of problems. But Folding Crutches eliminate that issue completely, collapsing down to a compact bundle easy to keep under a chair or table.


Remember to seek help/advice from a healthcare professional before choosing or using crutches.
