Benefits of iWALK2.0 For Your Patients:

The New Standard in Mobility Devices – The pain and limitations of crutches and knee scooters are well known.   Finally there is a better alternative – the iWALK2.0 Hands Free Crutch.   It’s safer, increases patient well-being, reduces recovery time, and allows your patient to maintain a functional lifestyle during their non-weight bearing period.  iWALK2.0 is the new standard of care for lower leg injuries.

Everyday activities are impossible on traditional crutches or knee scooters. With iWALK2.0 you can immediately get back to your routine. So whether you’re pushing a shopping cart, going up or down stairs, carrying a cup of coffee, walking the dog, the iWALK2.0 gives you your life back.

Improve your quality of care by giving your patient a functional, pain-free, hands-free recovery.

Watch videos of iWALK2.0 first time users here.

“Without the iWALK2.0 my summer would have been awful!”

“Crutches hurt! The knee scooter gave me limited mobility. After getting the iWALK2.0 I can do just about everything I normally do!

iWALK2.0 is clinically proven to reduce your patient’s recovery time. Also, your patient will prefer the iWALK2.0 to other mobility devices because they can lead a functional lifestyle during their recovery. Increased activity promotes a reduction in muscle atrophy for both the injured and non-injured leg, and increased compliance can reduce secondary injuries.

“I’m going to use it for myself, and I’m excited to use it for my patients”

“I‘m going use it for myself because of my stress fracture in my heel but I’m excited the opportunity to use it for my patients, especially my non-compliant athletes who have foot and ankle stress fractures and post-ankle surgery. I really think it’s going to cut down on the morbidity of crutch use or walker use. It’s truly hard for patients to be compliant when they have to carry around a device that’s so restrictive that they can’t use their hands or take care of their kids or hold their bags or purse or such.”

Dr. John Jasko MD, Orthopedic Surgeon, AAOS, AOFAS, AOSMS

iWALK2.0 is inexpensive and affordable. It enables people to get back to work during their recovery period and prevents their injury from impacting their income.

“If the patient is happy, then I’m happy……and the patient is happy!”

“my patient actually introduced me to the iWALK and, by the way, I’m doing this video just because my patient loves this device. He came walking into the office, I’d never seen it before, and the look on the guy’s face, just watching him walking by all the other patients in wheelchairs, crutches, everything, with this iWALK on, was amazing. And if the patient happy then I’m happy, and let me just tell you – the patient is happy. I just have to say, this is the best device ever.”

Dr John Lyon MD, Orthopedic Surgeon

Better by design, the iWALK2.0 is functional, strong, easy to use and easy to adjust.  It can be tailored to your patient’s leg type, which allows it to mimic their specific leg geometry.  This provides natural balance which is familiar to your patient.   Unlike other mobility devices, iWALK2.0 has a long history of injury-free performance.

“My life sucked! It all changed when I found the iWALK2.0!”

“I assembled the iWALK2.0 in about 10 minutes. 15 minutes later it was like I had been walking on it for a year. I can walk up and down the stairs. I was even able to go to the gym.”

Austin, Active Marine
