Crutches

Forearm and bariatric crutches help elderly people get around more easily by providing added stability as they walk. Often times, elderly patients no longer have the strength and balance required to walk unassisted. Some individuals require canes; other require walkers, or scooters or wheelchairs or canes. Only your physician or physical therapist knows what is the best device to restore indpendence to those with reduced mobility. Whether crutches are used permanently or for long term use, these adaptive products are just one type of mobility aids that allow the elderly to move more freely.

If you are choosing crutches, which type should you choose? Consider the differences between forearm and bariatric models when you’re trying to decide.

Forearm Crutches
•ergonomicly designed for comfortable use
•able to use just one easily if support is only needed on one side (i.e. after a stroke)
•avoids contact with sensitive underarm areas
•less conspicuous in appearance
•adjustable

Bariatric Crutches
•designed to be exceptionally sturdy
•able to support additional weight capacity
•adjustable

One caregiver said “I used to dread going to the grocery store with my mother because she had to walk so slowly and have me lead her by the arm to avoid having another fall, but now that she has a forearm crutch on each side, she walks more confidently and securely.”

Buy your loved one a pair of crutches from our extensive selection and restore their independence. Make sure that appropriate sized crutches are prescribed for them by a qualified medical provider. Also make certain that they are appropriately trained in their safe use.
