(1) Very well made
(2) very sturdy
(3) good durometer strong rubber feet
(4) sleek design
(5) quiet (unlike the rickety store-bought ones).
(1) They are not ‘balanced’ like a standard-designed crutch so they have a tendency to fall one way or another rather easily when you don’t have a good grip on them.
(2) A rubber cap (?) at the end of one section came off inside the tube within which it sits. Did not really cause a problem with use.
(3) The spring on one side compresses a little more easily than the other, as if it’s not damped like the other. Perhaps this is due to #2.
(4) The outer diameter of the large rubber feet catches under doors when you’re fumbling to open doors.
(5) Due to the springs/movement of the feet, I feel movement in my shoulders. That makes me worry about long-term use and shoulder damage. I am constantly reminding myself to keep my shoulders up and back and my arms locked (or then it’s shoulder AND elbow damage).
(6) One handle likes to loosen up. They have plenty of washers and springs to help prevent this but I just added a little Loctite to the threads. No design flaw here, they have to make them so they're adjustable, right? But for me, it's a one time adjustment... or 3 as it took until I actually had it adjusted correctly.
(7) They are not ambidextrous and no matter how I set them down, I will always pick up the wrong one in each hand.
- They are 1/2 a pound heavier (each) than my older aluminum crutches - I weighted both sets. Maybe I just don't have the tiny bit of extra arm strength but these wipe me out.
- Not enough underarm padding - I have them adjusted correctly and verified with PT - they still rub the sides of my armpits and when you do rest on them, they are harder than my aluminum crutches with Crutcheze pads. More padding is required in my opinion.
- The hand grips need to be softer - yes they are ergonomic and easier to grip, but they also rub my hands sore at the base of the palms. Or perhaps they need to be adjustable? I was worried I'd form blisters.
- I can do certain maneuvers on traditional crutches that I can't do with these - such as freeing up a hand, and using my body to swing the crutch and using my armpit to bear 1/2 my weight so I can carry something AND take a step. Perhaps more practice required?
- Also when doing stairs and putting both crutches to one side, I can't grip both of these together like I can my old pair. Maybe my hands aren't big enough. And even so the fitted grips make it difficult.
- There is no way to attached the little Crutcheze pouch that I use to carry around a bottle of beer or hydroflask without some sort of engineering.
- For some reason, they just are always falling down no matter what I prop them against.
I'm sure sure these are great for others and people swear by them, I get it. But this average 42 year old 5'10" male just can't handle them. I switched back to my traditional crutches and I'm just more comfortable with them in the end. Perhaps I should have started with these before I had my surgery and would have adjusted better. Not sure. But just beware if you're used to traditional crutches and switch to these, they take some getting used to.
