Forearm crutches are a popular choice for people who need to use crutches for a short period of time as a mobility aid. They are designed to be more comfortable and easier to use than traditional underarm crutches. Forearm crutches are a good option for temporary users because they are lightweight, easy to use, and provide better support than traditional underarm crutches. They also reduce pressure on the wrists, improve body posture, and distribute your weight evenly.
When choosing forearm crutches, it’s important to consider the following factors:
- Height: Forearm crutches come in different sizes, so it’s important to choose the right size for your height.
- Weight: Forearm crutches should be lightweight so that you can easily carry them around.
- Comfort: Look for forearm crutches with comfortable handgrips and underarm pads. This will help prevent blisters and soreness.
