I ordered these on a Friday morning and they arrived by Saturday morning. They make using crutches so much easier. Better for my hands than standard crutches. I've had a few comments from people telling me how nice they are. If I have to use crutches to get around then I'm going to try to get the most comfortable pair.
Cool Crutches are great, strong and make getting around much easier.
Currently non wait bearing due to major ankle operation - crutches are far more comfortable on my hands and don’t suction to the ground like the ones issued to me. My only request would be that the neoprene hand covers are tighter fitting as they slip.
The crutches arrived promptly, and were as described. They are easy to adjust and dismantle if needed. The only drawback is that I feel that the length of the handgrips is slightly on the short side. My hands are small, and felt the handgrips were slightly too short, especially for bigger hands. An extra half inch would be a bit more comfortable.
Following a fall and a trimalleolar fracture and two surgeries I have to remain non-weight bearing. The NHS crutches were making my hands hurt and am going to need to rely on crutches for a while so decided to buy myself some. Although expensive best decision in the last 3 weeks so much more comfortable.
Absolutely delighted with the crutch so much nicer than the hospital one.
I went to see rod stewart in Birmingham on Friday and I used my new crutch for the first time then and felt safe and secure. I read your article in woman & home magazine and wish you every success for the future.merry Christmas.
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.
