Gain your freedom with crutches
If you're recovering from knee surgery or an ankle sprain, a cane or a decent pair of crutches can no doubt help you gain some freedom before you're able to walk unaided again. Those with bariatric conditions can also benefit from the adjustable forearm, underarm or elbow crutches, many of which have ergonomic properties for a more streamlined experience. On eBay, you'll find all sorts of mobility equipment and crutches that are moulded to support your body.
Ergonomic forearm crutches
Ergonomic aids are often designed with the help of professional physiotherapists who have optimum limb configuration and join support in mind. FDI Medical on eBay offers optimal comfort forearm crutches with a padded cuff and ultra soft handle grip. A patented backbone structure technology means that aluminium tubing goes all the way to the top for maximum rigidity. Mobility is at the core of ergonomic crutches, so if you want a swift recovery, these will get you on the right road.
Forearm crutches aren't for everyone, so if you give them a go and don't get on, give underarm crutches a spin instead. Walking with crutches takes a little getting used to, but the underarm positioning is more comfortable if the top of the crutch is well padded. Aluminium alloy underarm crutches are lightweight and usually have easy push-button height adjustment features. The rubber tips help give stability outdoors and won't mark indoor surfaces.
Underarm crutch cushions
Sometimes you need a little extra comfort if you're using crutches over a long period of time. Australia has many great mobility aid companies, but Comfy Crutches is great when it comes to providing underarm cushions that fit perfectly over crutches. These soft, easy to clean and practical items have a foam filler, with a washable cover. Getting from A to B with crutches can be quicker and more enjoyable with the aid of padded crutch cushions.
