Crutches are used when a person cannot walk or has any leg or foot injury. A crutch has two purposes: to reduce the weight load on one of your legs and improve your balance and stability. There are many types of crutches to provide you comfort while regaining your ability to walk.
Walking crutches, or arm crutches, are placed under the armpits and extend to the floor. This is the most common type of crutch and can be easily adjusted to your customized height.
Forearm crutches have a cuff that is placed just below the elbow and a hand grip for better stability. Many people prefer forearm crutches because of the smaller size and easy handling.
Knee crutches are commonly used for lower leg or foot injuries. These are like a knee scooter relieving all pressure from the injured leg.
