After breaking my leg (i.e, tibial plateau fracture) during a skiing accident and being told I had to be on crutches for 6 weeks, I set out trying to find a crutch-alternative that would make life less challenging. I was surprised to find that there aren't many alternatives out there and the technology hasn't changed in 5000 years. I had never been on crutches before and found the whole thing exhausting and extremely difficult. Fortunately, I found mobilegs which were a godsend. I walked on regular crutches for 3 weeks and then got to mobilegs and have been on them for another 3 weeks. I would definitely purchase them again, and would recommend them to anyone on regular crutches.

POSITIVES:
However, don't expect any miracles. While they are great crutches and gave me a new vigor to be mobile again, don't think you'll be sprinting down the street in them. First, the great features: (1) LIGHTWEIGHT: These things weigh much less than your standard crutches, and you can lift and move them more easily. This added to my mobility and less stress on the rest of my body; (2) MOBILITY: I can move much faster in the mobilegs than with standard crutches, about 1 1/2 times as fast. If you do it correctly, I could go almost twices as fast; (3) SLEEK/SLIMLINE: The mobilegs only have one tube as opposed to two on standard crutches. This enabled me to slip between tight corners (closing doors, crowded hallways, etc.) and had a smaller footprint that regular crutches; (4) ERGONOMIC GRIPS: The grips are position diagonally and are rubber-foam covered. I was having terrible pains the nerves in my hand from regular crutches. Using these crutches minimized those pains almost instantly. While those pains aren't completely gone, it is tolerable now.

These crutches are awesome. Having used the traditional crutches in the past, I was excited when I found these before a surgery I was to have. I have had the pleasure of having the office chairs that the designer of these crutches is credited with co-designing for 15 years now and thought that if these were half as comfortable as the chairs it would be a huge improvement over traditional crutches.

They are a huge improvement over traditional crutches. The most noticeable benefit is that 24 days post surgery now I haven't had a single bit of chaffing in my arm pits. And while my wrists still hurt a bit from all the extra weight being supported by my wrists, the ergonomic hand grips and positioning minimize the pain and relieve pressure on the nerves preventing common pain up into the arm.

The mesh upper is soft and is designed not to move too much in your arm pit, thus reducing the chaffing. The upper also turns from side to side a bit which allows for a more natural walking motion on the crutches, again preventing the chaffing. The upper is mounted into the aluminum crutch on a spring providing some shock absorption.

The hand holds are an ergonomic foam that is very comfortable and the rubber on the bottom of the crutch is rounded like the legs of a rocking chair providing for a "smooth" forward movement.

The only negative that I've noticed is that the clickity-clack that adjustable crutches have where the adjustable pegs hit the sides when you put weight on the crutch seems to be louder on these crutches. Would be nice if there was a way to dampen the noise.

One other point to note, if you are used to regular crutches and sometimes rely on the solidity of the upper to carry things short distances without using your hands on the crutch, you can't do that with these since they are spring mounted.

To summarize, highly recommended.

Indeed much, much better than regular cheap crutches. I'm even more glad I bought them because my knee surgeon did a bait and switch. <wink> He said 3 weeks on crutches, and after 3 weeks he said "No, I said *6* weeks!"

I started out on the cheap crutches I was given and promptly realized they were pieces of crap. The usual complaints - pain in the heel of the hands, and chafing in the armpits. The Mobilegs solve those problems, and are very light as well.

They are also good conversation pieces with cute nurses as they look very snazzy. :)

I bought the "ultra" version of the Mobilegs - the armpit saddles are mounted on an internal telescoping spring loaded mechanism. While hobbling along, these enable the crutches to come up a little easier as you pick them up and bring them forward.

Because I work in the electronics industry where developments happen at a breakneck pace, it made me wonder why something similar to the Mobilegs wasn't invented back in the 70s. I guess medical technology moves at a snail's pace in comparison, due to lawsuits and the glacial pace of FDA approval (though crutches don't "need" any kind of FDA testing AFAIK)

The reason I give them 4 (4.5 if amazon had em) instead of 5 stars are minor issues:
- the spring loaded mechanism has some binding / stiction to them, which application of some grease helped
- under the armpit saddles are an aluminum metal frame whose corners are quite sharp and may give one a "paper cut" if you were to pick up the crutches by grabbing the saddle and a finger happens to grasp said corner. I spent 5 minutes deburring the corners with a hand deburring tool. Said frame is aluminum so it was very easy. Without a deburring tool, one could use the blade of a thick pair of scissors, a file, or maybe even a manicure file.

Shipping was fast in CA because they have a warehouse here.
