Specifications, Limitations and Accreditation

The smartCRUTCH™ design allows pressure distribution for maximum user comfort with a six-fold reduction in pressure per square centimetre in comparison to conventional  crutches

Making the pressure “point” redundant, makes  SmartCRUTCHTM “ the Worlds most comfortable CRUTCH !

This patented modular design distributes the users body weight over the length of their forearm, releasing pressure and pain from the hands and wrists using a unique and comfortable cuff design.

This cuff, moulded from Virgin Nylon PA6 Polymide, is just the beginning of its superior design to other crutches, used in recovery from injury or for more permanent users. Smart CRUTCHTM is the pain free alternative.

The unique half cuff mould is made even more comfortable with expanded foam inserts. The cuff may then be angled by rotating the forearm platform from 15- 90 degrees,to suit the user. Thus allowing much less strain on the hands and wrists, yet offering full support for both weight bearing balance and non weight bearing situations.
