How Can The Flexyfoot Crutch Help With Knee Pain?
Walking immediately after injury or knee surgery can be incredibly painful and is not recommended. A crutch will help shift some of the weight away from your knee so that you can walk further and longer without causing aggravation or worsening any injuries you already have.
When coupled with a knee support, you'll experience double the benefit, allowing you to heal much quicker!
Should I Choose the Left or Right Crutch?
Which crutch you choose all depends on which knee is injured or affected by arthritis. You should purchase the crutch that corresponds with your stronger side, ie: if you have an injured right leg, buy a left-handed crutch, and if you have an injured left leg, buy a right-handed crutch.
Alternatively, you could also buy both the left and right options in order to maximise your stability.
What's So Special About the Flexyfoot Ferrule?
Unlike standard ferrules found on standard crutches, Flexyfoot crutches feature unique, shock-absorbing ferrules that provide outstanding grip and shock protection. The Flexyfoot ferrule bends to absorb the impacts as your crutches hit the ground, stopping painful vibrations from straining the body.
Learn more about this incredible feature by watching the video below.
Traditional ferrules (the caps on the bottom of crutches) do not absorb the shock which is generated every time the crutch touches the ground, which then travels through the hand and arm, resulting in fatigue and discomfort. The Flexyfoot ferrule's uniquely designed bellows absorb shock, which in turn can help relieve this pain.
This shock absorption is ideal for people that are suffering with elbow and shoulder pain as a result of using crutches or similar walking aids. The Flexyfoot features two parts: a collar and a pleated bellows. The bellows act like a spring that absorbs shock, meaning less pressure, tension and impact are transferred to your body compared with other traditional rubber ferrules.
Are the Cuffs Hinged?
Yes, the cuffs are hinged.
Perfect for Use On Rough Terrain
Because the bellows make the ferrule flexible, the Flexyfoot will stay in contact with the ground when used on rough terrain, helping provide a greater level of grip. This helps make you comfortable and more secure, allowing you to be more active when using your crutches.
The Flexyfoot Crutch makes it much safer to walk on rough surfaces
The Flexyfoot Anatomical Soft Grip Handle Closed Cuff Crutch is built for comfort. Its anatomical grip handle is moulded to the shape of your hand, which maximises comfort by distributing pressure over a larger area. A closed cuff is designed to keep the crutch connected to the arm, granting the hands more freedom while clip height adjustment means you get a perfect fit no matter how tall you are.
Helps You Stay Visible At Night
People with poor mobility need to take extra special care when they're out and about at night. For this reason, the Flexyfoot crutch comes with integrated reflectors that help you stand out to other street users in the darkness. This gives them more chance to see you so that they can give you extra space if needed.
How Tall Is the Anatomical Soft Grip Handle Cuff?
The Anatomical Soft Grip Handle Cuff measures from 75cm to 105cm from the ferrule at the bottom all the way up to the top of the handle. As the height can be adjusted, this helps to ensure that you can use the crutch as comfortably as possible.
