A new medical revolution is underway. Practitioners who want to provide the best possible support for patients who need crutches for recovery from a variety of injuries are moving to prescribe smartCRUTCH. Patients are benefitting from a significant reduction in the pain, discomfort and injury often caused by conventional crutches. They are also enjoying far greater mobility because of smartCRUTCH’s innovative design.
This unique new design, which provides six times more surface area for support, distributes pressure far more efficiently than conventional crutches do. The six fold reduction in pressure on the hands and forearm eliminates calluses and significantly reduces wrist strain, inflammation and the nerve damage often experienced by patients on crutches. Pressure under the arms is also reduced dramatically, which contributes to greater comfort over longer periods.
The vastly improved support provided by smartCRUTCH also means it is very well suited for patients who have weak wrists or who have a hand or wrist in a cast at the same time that they require crutches. By distributing the weight evenly between the palm, wrist, forearm, elbow, upper arm and shoulder the experience of using crutches is drastically improved.
