ABOUT SMARTCRUTCH

smartCRUTCH is a versatile mobility device designed to prevent the pain, discomfort and injury commonly associated with conventional underarm or forearm crutches. The unique design offers individuals with short term injuries, long term disabilities or people suffering from chronic hand, wrist or joint disease, a new option in mobility

Unlike conventional crutches that direct an individual’s entire weight load on the hands and wrists, smartCRUTCH is designed to transfer weight load to the forearm. The forearm platform can be adjusted from 15° to a 90° giving users the ability to minimize the compressive forces on the hands and wrists. The smartCRUTCH design spreads the load over a larger surface area resulting in less pain, discomfort and reduction of potential injuries.

smartCRUTCH is engineered with durable, lightweight materials and feature ergonomically designed grips to maximize comfort. The forearm platform utilizes memory foam padding for long lasting comfort and an easy push-pin height adjustment system. An hourglass shaped tip is designed to reduce shock and improve grip on a wide variety of surfaces.

COMPARISON

Axillary (Underarm) Crutches

For more than 80 years the conventional underarm (axillary) crutch has been the standard issued walking device for temporary disabilities or injuries in the United States. Not much has changed since their inception apart from replacing wood construction to lighter weight aluminum in the early 1960’s. They have certainly served a purpose but their primitive design continues to cause irritation and severe injury to nerves, tendons and soft tissue found in the axilla (armpit). Also, direct load on the hands and wrists can cause additional joint and nerve damage along with blistering or callusing of the palms.  

Forearm Crutches

Forearm crutches are commonly used throughout Europe for both short term and long term use. They are beginning to gain popularity in the United States and Canada but are mostly used by individuals with long term disabilities. The forearm crutch design does have some advantages over underarm crutches by eliminating damage to the axilla (armpit) region of the body. However, their inherent design places direct weight load on the hands and wrists which can cause damage to palms, joints, nerves and tendons with limited use.

smartCRUTCH®

The smartCRUTCH design incorporates all of the benefits of a forearm style while minimizing or eliminating the compressive forces on the hands and wrists. It does this by allowing the user to adjust the angle of the forearm platform to reduce or increase the amount of weight load to the hands and wrists. Transferring this load to the forearm can reduce or potentially eliminate injuries commonly found with the use of standard underarm or forearm crutches as stated above. smartCRUTCH also helps maintain proper posture, relieve stress and minimize fatigue setting you up for a safe and speedy recovery.
