iWALK vs Forearm Crutches
Forearm crutches are one of the leading mobility devices for leg injuries, especially outside of the USA, but they have some serious limitations. Forearm crutches hurt your hands, wrists and arms. They require significant upper body strength, and are very inefficient for walking. Even if you know how to use crutches, your hands and arms are totally encumbered, so you can’t do normal day-to-day things. Crutches are the most hated device most people will use in their lifetime.
In contrast, iWALK2.0 solves the problems of standard crutches. It’s the best crutch alternative available. It’s both hands free AND pain free because you use your leg to support your weight, not your hands and arms. And it’s highly functional – you walk and stand with your hands and arms 100% free to do whatever you need. iWALK2.0 is more than a crutch, it’s a temporary lower leg.
