Forearm CrutchForearm Crutches are shorter than standard walking crutches, with a cuff that goes around the forearm for added support and stability. Instead of being positioned under the armpit, forearm crutches distribute weight in the arms. This unique style is designed for comfort and convenience. The smaller size and lighter build make them more portable for those able to use them. Excellent for use during physical therapy and physical rehab, forearm crutches can be much easier to use than walking crutches but do require more arm strength.
Forearm Crutches may be preferred over the arm crutches or walking crutches because of their easy handling and smaller size.
