Check out the photos to see, first hand, how the Freedom Crutch can benefit you.

Important Information

The Freedom Crutch is made and owned by Veterans. If you like what we're doing, please give us positive feedback. If not, please let us know how we can improve by visiting Check out and watch the video tutorial. Guidelines for Use: Start by attaching the Freedom Crutch accessory, using the provided hardware, to your crutch so that the knee pad platform is at a comfortable height. Learning to walk with the Freedom Crutch: When using the Freedom Crutch (or any kind of assisting walking device) for the first time, you should start out on carpet or some other non-skid surface. Never use crutches of any kind on wet slippery surfaces! While using two crutches (one with the Freedom Crutch attached) place the knee of the injured leg in the Freedom Crutch knee platform. While standing upright adjust your weight so that an equal amount of weight is distributed between the right and left leg. Pull up slightly on the hand-grip so that the knee rest fits snugly against your knee and move the injured leg and the Freedom Crutch forward about one half of a normal step. Check your balance before proceeding to the next step. Place your weight on the Freedom Crutch and bring your other leg forward and half of a normal step in front of the injured leg. Repeat steps 4 through 6 Continue practicing until you feel comfortable using the Freedom Crutch and be sure to lift the crutch completely off the ground while walking so the crutch tip doesn't drag on the floor causing the crutch to not move forward with your leg. You should feel comfortable enough after a few minutes to take your normal full steps. Using the Freedom Crutch with a hand free: With practice you can maneuver about while having a hand free. This takes some practice and should not be attempted until you are quite comfortable using the Freedom Crutch. After some time you may feel comfortable walking without using the crutch that doesn't have the Freedom Crutch.

I am 6'2'' tall and weigh 215 lbs and I am in good shape. I got a foot operation and had to stay off one foot for 2 months. I progressively tried five of the basic implements advertised by Amazon to help me deal with the inconvenience--some worked very well. This particular item was the most disappointing. Not only is it vastly overpriced--for a simple piece of metal with a thin pad and two screws-- but it borders on dangerous to the user. My height and my crutch and the location of the holes on the Rest were almost impossible to line up. When I finally succeeded in getting them attached in a barely adequate fashion the metal knee rest gradually and steadily bent under my weight quickly making it unusable. This design may have some utility for the claimed purpose but it needs a lot of basic engineering work.

I ordered the Freedom Crutch Knee Rest back in February. I slipped on ice and suffered multiple fractures and a torn ligament in my ankle so I was non weight bearing. I had never used crutches before and for the first two weeks I was completely miserable. I just could not get the hang of it. My whole body was constantly sore. In a desperate attempt to make things easier I went to google and stumbled on this knee rest. I ordered it and it arrived a couple of days later. I had to adjust it a few times to get it at a comfortable height but once I did it was great. I wasn't able to use just one crutch right away, it took some practice. I spent the first two days using both crutches before I started practicing with one. by the fourth day I had it down.

The only negatives I can think of are:
The knee pad itself could probably use a bit more cushioning. The first few days I added something else to help but after, I guess my knee got use to it and it stopped bothering me.

The washers make it difficult to unscrew the wing nuts without a tool after being in place for a while. And I did put a few scratches on the furniture with the screws that stick out.

I saw another review that mentioned something about an odor. My pad had no smell at all.

All in all I recommend it to anyone who has to deal with crutches. I was reluctant because of the price. When I got it it was $99. But once I got it, I immediately decided it was absolutely worth the price. More so now that the price has gone down.

I give it 5 stars for functionality, but 3 stars due to needing some improvements. Functionality wise, it rocks! I'm about 5'5" and it works great for me. It does take some getting used to, but you can get to where you can walk with 1 crutch without putting any weight on that foot. You do need to have some decent balance and build up some strength in that arm and the weight bearing leg to walk for any length of time. After a few weeks I was able to walk, do light housework, go grocery shopping, and carry light items with one crutch. It's exhausting to be up walking for a couple hours, which I would not be able to do at all without this device, but it can be done thanks to this knee rest.

As far as improvements needed:

1. The price is high for what it is.

2. I do think the padding could be much better. I have to wear the boot and it rubs against the padding and the padding is starting to show wear after 3 weeks, but I am also more active than most according to my physical therapist.

3. You put all of your weight on that crutch tip if you use one crutch, therefore you will go through more crutch tips. I went through a tip in 3 weeks. Looking right now to find the most heavy duty crutch tip I can find. My PT replaced it, but he didn't put it on right and it blew in one day. This may have nothing to do with the crutch pad, just throwing that out there.

4. The most annoying thing about it for me are the metal edges. For that price they can make the edges less sharp. You need some kind of padding on the edges in order not to scratch the cabinets if you get too close, or scratch your car getting the crutch in and out. Or scratching anything you may run into with it.

After my first week on crutches, my hands felt bruised and I was having trouble holding myself up correctly with them. My arms hurt, my shoulders hurt, my back hurt....I felt like I got hit by a bus! I Not to mention crutches make you almost helpless. You can't go get yourself a glass of water and carry it. Same with fixing yourself a plate of food and trying to figure out how to get it to the table. I looked into getting a knee scooter, but with steps going into my house in both the front and back, and stairs to the only bathroom in the house, not to mention a gravel parking lot at work, there just wasn't enough areas for me to use it on to justify the expense. The iWalk seemed like a potential option, but was twice as much as this in cost and looked like the leg shelf was longer. I'm a short person and my boot comes half way up my calf, there looked like there would be a painful overlap where the top of my boot would be on the leg shelf.

This arrived very fast. Installation WOULD have been simple if I were taller and/or had been given the right size crutches by my doctor. Even after asking my height (60"), I was given crutches that only adjusted down to 62" on the lowest setting. This meant I had no open holes to install the bolts for the Freedom Crutch. I thought about buying some youth crutches in my size (nevermind the fact that I'm 33), but paying for more crutches on top of the Freedom Crutch was getting pricey. I opted to drill extra holes in my existing crutches and that worked out great!

Some things to keep in mind for a new user:
1) Use your other crutch with this for a while until you get your balanced figure out! The knee shelf sits inward from the point of contact on the ground with the crutches.
