Independent upper and lower leg height adjustments allow you to tailor the crutch to your personal leg proportions. Adjustments are quick, easy and tool-free.
The Thigh Supports recruit the upper leg to align and stabilize the crutch. Adjusts for thigh circumference from 15.5” to 28.0”. Left and Right are independently adjustable.
Are you Valgus (knock kneed) or Varus (bow legged)? Most of us are one or the other to some degree. Asymmetrical adjustment of the Thigh Supports compensates for both conditions – see Fitting and Use for more information.
The Calf Strap Mounts are on rails that run along the length of the Knee Platform. They can be repositioned by hand along the length of the rails to allow you to position the Calf Strap forward or back on the Knee Platform. You use this in cases where the standard Strap position (at the back of the Knee Platform) might irritate your injury. Below knee amputees will typically position the strap further forward to accommodate their residual limb.
Gives user confidence and aids in initial learning. Often used for longer distances to improve efficiency. Used for short distances to keep crutch aligned and in contact with the user’s leg when walking without straps. Also used when treating the crutch like a cane for assisting in getting up from seated position.
Quick release buckles allow you to quickly put on or take off the crutch. After basic proficiency is achieved, most people can don / doff the crutch in 10-15 seconds. As an additional safety feature, straps must be loosened fully before buckle can disengage. Converts tool-free for Left or Right leg use.
Proper tensioning of the strap is essential to give you maximum control and safety. This section, identified by the Blue webbing, is ergonomically positioned on the outside of your leg, which allows you to fully and significantly tension the strap with a quick pull on the end of the strap. A quick lift of the buckle releases tension so you can quickly take the crutch off.
Prevents the lower thigh from going between the two Upper Assembly tubes. This works in conjunction with the Knee Strap to keep the strap fully tensioned. Comes in two styles, plastic and fabric, which function similarly.
High resiliency closed cell foam provides comfort and durability. Closed cell foam material will not absorb liquid. Channels allow air circulation for cooling. Velcro attachment allows for easy replacement.
Anatomically designed structurally reinforced platform is light weight and
extremely stiff for maximum control. Your weight is distributed along the length of your shin to allow maximum comfort. Composite reinforced material with structural grid provides exceptional stiffness while maintaining light weight. Ergonomic shape fits the contours of the lower leg.
Tightens and loosens by hand to lock in all upper and lower section height adjustments. When tightened, height adjustments are intentionally difficult or impossible, so loosen before making height adjustments, and always tighten before using the crutch.
Our patented Foot is offset to the outside to provide stability, balance and control. Easy tool free adjustment allows Left or Right foot use. Includes our proprietary Vibram ™ tread for wet and dry traction, long wear and shock absorbing.
