SmartCrutch: Product Review
SmartCrutch: Product Review – In this video Cindy, physical therapist with Adaptive Equipment Corner reviews a product called the SmartCrutch. This video won’t review the differences between axillary crutches (the ones that go under the arms) and forearm crutches, but be sure to click the link, Crutches: Underarm or Forearm: https://youtu.be/b19qyDwHz3Y to check that out as well.
What is the SmartCrutch?
The SmartCrutch is a forearm crutch with features that allow for improved adjustability and versatility, which improves individual customization and comfort.
Who Can Use the SmartCrutch?
- Anyone with a leg injury
- People with a neurological or musculoskeletal disorder
- Clients with generalized lower extremity weakness needing additional support
All crutches take practice for safe use and a degree of upper body strength, though forearm crutches tend to require a bit more upper body strength than axillary crutches.
- Adjustable forearm platform from 15-90 degrees
- Memory foam padded forearm trough/rubberized hand grip
- Off set hand grips specific to Left and Right
- 3 length settings for hand grip
- 3 cuff sizes, multiple colors and designs
- Junior sizes up to adult 6’7″ height (see specifications for further details)
- Sold in singles or pairs
- Multiple crutch tip styles
The adjustability of the SmartCrutch allows for weight distribution off of the hands/wrists, back through the forearm, greatly improving comfort.
Overall Product Review
Although the SmartCrutch is more expensive than the “typical” axillary and forearm crutches, after use of the SmartCrutch, we certainly would recommend taking a look at this product when considering length of time to be spent on the crutches as well as maintaining the best level of comfort for the rest of your body during the process.
