Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lifechangesinasecond this product is great but has a feature that could be concerning.
I am torn from rating this from good to excellent. Reason is ~ The crutch itself is very lightweight and looks great, the forarm piece is very smooth & comfortable. Soft and flexable which helps my forearm with allowing a little give like suspention. However, the forearm cuff cannot be molded to the size of your forearms. They are wide and tend to slip off my arms easily when wearing-standing at rest. The bend back when applying pressure and raises concern as to the durability over time. With heat exposure in Florida it would be nice to have the option for replacement pieces available for the forearm cuff. These are formed on the crutch and cannot be replaced. I weigh 175lbs. Anyone with considerable weight above that may feel the same uneasy feeling that they will give out after prolonged use. I use these now as back ups. The price and color selections are great! I would recommend these but not as your main assistance aids unless you don't mind replacing entire unit more often than others. The price is what you get. The advantage is color and smooth rubbery feel against the back of your arms not to mention how lightweight they are. I will be buying more colors for fashion only. Service and delivery were fast and knowing its such a reputable company gave me confidence they wouldn't be sending me junk nor would give a hassle should I wish to return them.
