Crutches are a basic mobility aid that can help you get where you need to go. There are two main types to choose from. What's best for you depends on your needs. Standard crutches – the type you might use if you have a foot injury or after surgery – are designed for short-term use and have a push-button design that lets you adjust the crutches to the perfect height. Forearm crutches have a hand grip and a cuff that fits your forearm. Forearm crutches are designed for long-term use by those with walking and balance problems, leg spasticity, limb loss and long-term medical conditions like polio or multiple sclerosis. Both types are available in adult and child sizes. We also have crutch accessories including underarm pillows that provide extra cushioning and replacement tips.
