This past month smartCRUTCH® introduced their new junior model, designed with children ages 5 to 12 years old in mind.
The patented smartCRUTCH® design distributes your body weight evenly over your forearm removing pressure from your hands, wrists and elbows. The design also helps the user to maintain proper posture and gait and has built in shock absorption and padding for extra comfort. This all reduces the risk of further damage caused by traditional crutches and also allows the user to be mobile for longer, vastly improving their quality of life.
Fully adjustable the unique modular design can be changed from a forearm to a platform crutch with the twist of a dial. Each smartCRUTCH® can be personalized to the exact height and forearm length for an ergonomic fit.
Now the same innovative design is available to kids for rehabilitation or permanent use providing maximum comfort for little bodies. Ultra lightweight and collapsible, it’s available in five fun colors (Black, Blue, Purple, Red and Pink) and kids love it because it looks too cool for school!
Durability and toughness was a key factor in selection of materials used and spare parts are available too.
Sold in Pairs for USD$94.95 plus shipping.
Weight of a single crutch 1.1 lbs (500 grams)
Range for approximate height in shoes 4’ to 5’3 ft (122-158cm)
Maximum weight limitation 110 lbs (50 kgs)
