Canes / Crutches
Traditional crutch design has not changed in over 70 years. They are
not ergonomically designed and thus force the user to adapt to them.
Traditional crutch use over time can cause additional strains to joints,
tendons, and ligaments. This strain can lead to additional problems
including tendinitis and carpal tunnel syndrome.
In-Motion Crutches have been designed from the ground up to address the
problems associated with traditional crutch use. Working together as a
functional unit, the features of the In-Motion Crutches provide for a
comfortable experience while on crutches. The features include the large
Underarm Cradle, an Ergonomic Grip, a very popular Folding Design and a
Shock Absorbing/Power Assist Feature. The Extended Range of the Crutch
also fits a larger range of heights than a traditional Crutch.
The shock-absorbing feature of the
crutch increases comfort by reducing stress, fatigue and soreness. The
tension of the shock absorber allows the necessary cushion in each step,
but is firm enough to provide a feeling of security and stability.
- » Absorbs impact energy
- » Increases comfort by reducing stress, fatigue and soreness
- » Reduces pain in back, shoulders, elbows, arms and wrists
Traditional crutches are awkward to
use in crowded settings such as in a car, or on an airplane, sitting in
an audience, or at a restaurant. The collapsible feature of our crutch
makes using it in public places much more convenient. It simply folds
for easy storage.
- Convenient to fold and store
- Easy to carry, package and ship
The ergonomic grip on our
shock-absorbing crutch is at an angle (12°) designed to provide the
greatest amount of blood flow and reduced trauma to the nervous system.
- Designed for repetitive and vigorous use
- Allows proper blood flow and nerve conduction
- Reduces carpal tunnel syndrome and wrist tendinitis
This unique feature provides for
better sense of stability in use. The cradle feature allows for greater
position confidence while in the walking motion. As the walking movement
proceeds, the front position of the under arm cradle gives the user
forward arm and shoulder support. Consequently, there is less reliance
on the direct underarm pressure. Since the user relies less on the
underarm support, there is a reduction in back and shoulder stress.
- Larger area enhances sense of walking stability
- Reduces underarm fatigue and soreness
- More comfortable and easy to use
