I was sick and tired of lumbering about on the crutches I bought from Amazon.
And I bought mid-range, moulded hand grips, etc.
But, every step, the pressure on my wrists as I pushed down on the hand grips, and the grips are smooth, so on a hot day, extremely sweaty.
Just stock, aluminium tubes with bits of plastic bolted on as an afterthought. No consideration given to their actual function, nor indeed styling.
I used to dread walking any distance in them, they were only good for balance, nothing more.
Frankly, they were crap.
So, I bought these:
The Ergobaum Royal.
Dual shock-absorbers, padded, adjustable hand grips, padded cuffs, angled forearm-rest-thing, headlights, warning horn (overkill, with the lights and horn, maybe).
Like crutches designed by a committee of crutch-users, every idea thrown in.
Used by the king of Spain, THE KING OF SPAIN!! They must be good.
I've only just received them, but I'm happy so far.
What kind of crutches are you all using?
