Yes, this is due to our replaceable rubber tips, the hour-glass shaped foot maximizes ground contact regardless of the leg position. The piece is made from rubber and is unique in design, allowing the rubber to angulate in all directions during the transfer to the ground, ensuring horizontal adherence on the non-skid flat tread to the ground at all times. This provides a far more secure hold than conventional crutch tips, adding to the increased feel of confidence the crutches give on various surfaces. We do sell tip covers with studs for use on ice or snow. These are seasonal items so please contact us if you don’t see them available.
