Being suddenly disabled at the age of 30 was quite hard for me to accept, but, 3 years on I'm finally getting there. Products like these are so fundamental in the process of acceptance and these crutches make me feel proud when I'm out using them instead of ashamed or embarrassed.
I already have the right handed funky purple crutch but now need two crutches, so ordered the matching left handed crutch. They are so well made and exceptionally comfortable... and the Funky Purple design adds fun and personality to something I couldn't be without! A huge thank you to Cool Crutches, Tracy xxx
Bought for my wife, who loves the funky colour scheme. More importantly, she reports that the crutch feels light, but is very sturdy. Is comfortable.to use, reducing the strain she would feel in her shoulder while using other crutches. Cool Crutches has another fan and there may well be another order coming your way in the near future.
It's all in the detail
Our crutches have been specifically designed with comfort, silence and safety in mind
1 Detachable and flexible arm cuff
The arm cuff sits gently around your forearm to provide extra support. Using an arm cuff enables you to use your hand to pick up something whilst resting your crutch but prevents the crutch from falling. For example, if you were opening a door the cuff would hang from your arm whilst you opened the door, without falling to the floor.
2 Elbow rest
Height adjustable elbow rest.
3 Comfortable, soft neoprene grips
Our grips are neoprene, which have been created specifically for Cool Crutch handle grips. The soft neoprene grips are designed to cushion your hands whilst walking – no more blisters! Each pair are removable and washable.
4 Height adjustment clips
Our clips are used as the pivot point for height adjustment, allowing you to secure the chosen height. These are also the feature which ensures each crutch is silent. Suitable for those between 152cm - 193cm tall.
5 Cushioned ferrules
Our soft, cushioned ferrules ensure minimum impact to your joints, making them more comfortable than, and a safe alternative to NHS crutches.
