After months of researching and reading reviews I decided on these. I wanted a crutch that would take pressure off my shoulders and wrists so I wouldn't fatigue so easily. Based on everything I read, I figured these might be the ones. So I ordered them and have been using ever since.
I figured I would give them three months of use before writing a review. Well after today, I don't need anymore time. First I am 5'10" 200lbs. So pretty average. But today while walking, the upper part just above the handles decided to break in half while walking. Pictures attached.
Luckily I was walking on a hard surface and my knee was able to use it to break part of the fall. And of course my wrist and shoulder handled the rest. Nothing that won't heal in a week or two.
So unfortunately I have to rate these a 1 star and be grateful I wasn't heading down a ramp or stairs.
I have polio, and have been using crutches for many years, and this crutch is not at all weight bearing! I can only guess that to those who gave a positive on this product (3 stars or more), weight bearing may not have been a real issue. That is, their legs were/are strong enough to both move a bit and carry a load.
Indeed, if someone had any paralysis of the lower limb, the weight that would have been on the limb, would have to then be transferred to the arms, and thus, the need for strong load bearing crutches, this particular crutch, will in no way serve them.
If one is a cane user (and their legs are strong enough), and just want to try something different, then ok it may serve you as a fashion statement, but otherwise, I would skip this product.
Since my first review, some time has passed by, and out of the blue, I received an email that informed me that the original Ergobaum crutches I originally received (i had sent it back a day after receiving it) was defective (it truly was the proverbial "rubber crutch").
Indeed, I was quite puzzled how anyone could use the Ergobaum crutches, which had a quite flimsy (as in slinky bend flimsy) forearm part. Be that as it may, I thought that some people really just didn't put any load on their crutches (but it wasn't for me).
I was then sent another one (free of charge) and decided to reasses it again. This time, the crutch I received was able to bear my weight. Thus, I'm satisfied that what I had received originally was defective.
Since I was a child, I've used crutches. First I had those crutches that went under the armpit (never again), then changed to forearm crutches. I then tried more "ergonomic" crutches, and usually that meant a decent and comfortable grip, but having a crutch for the left hand and one for the right hand, which was ok, but the crutches were not interchangeable (the crutch tips wore down unevenly), still, the advantage of having something to minimize the strain on the hands and wrists was worth it.
I then started to see crutches that had "shock absorption" qualities. Believe me, after many decades of shocks to my shoulder and arms, it was taking a toll. I then decided to look for crutches that were ergonomic (as I defined above) and had shock absorbing properties, and found these at amazon. So I figure, give it a go.
The crutches are the heaviest I've ever had (2.25 kg/pair or 5 lbs/pair without knee rests attached (being a polio victim I had no use for it)), though for me it's a non issue since I have fairly decent upper body strength and arms. As a comparison, my other pair of crutches weiged in at 1.60 kg/pair or 3.5 lbs/pair, with both pairs having the exact same crutch tips.
The angle of the forearm part is offset 30 degrees from vertical, and as it turns out, it really does seem a better design (it wasn't just a gimmick) than your normal straight vertical forearm part. The grip is both comfortable and shock absorbing in it's own right.
Oftentimes I try to carry something and the grips on these are a little more "awkward" per say for that use, but I think a bit of practice and ingenuity will remedy the situation.
The main shock absorbing mechanism though is located on the bottom of the crutch staff, which I can already notice is a help in dampening the shock of going up and down.
As for the Ergobaum crutch tips, it's also the heaviest crutch tips i've used by far (.45 kg/pair or 1 lb/pair), easily double the weight or more of any crutch tips I've had before.
I actually separately purchased the tips for a different crutch pair (wise to have two pairs of crutches just in case), so have had a couple of months to test out the tips itself. It's ok, but traction wise, at least anecdotally from my experience, I can't really say it's any better or worse than your generic ones. I've fallen, unfortunately, with both the generic and the Ergobaum crutch tips "sighs".
The best way not to fall is to be careful (from the school of hard knocks). As of yet, I haven't had a crutch tip that was truly gripping in both smooth and dry surfaces, much less wet or slippery surfaces.
I've only had the Ergobaum for a few days so can't comment on it's durability (maybe for a future assesment), the literal bells and whistles, and miniflashlight. Having said that, and having been a manager that was also responsible for quality control, I would recommend stricter scrutiny or replace your supplier (an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure).
So, overall, I would give it 9 out of 10, but since Amazon has a 1 to 5 scale (I do wish they would change it to a 10 scale), I'll give it a 5, not because it's a perfect crutch, but since Ergobaum provided excellent customer service. That in my book is the best one can hope for in this imperfect world.
Yeshua bless you!
It's been a few months since my last assessment, unfortunately after just 3 months, both "shock absorbers" on the left and right crutches are shot. As was mentioned in my previous reviews, quality control seems to be lacking with this product. The first time I received it, the upper part was clearly out of funk, and now after only three months, the shock absorbers are no more :(
On the bright side, their little mini flashlight (pun unintended) turned out to be quite practical and useful! The little horn not so much.
Thus, if they ever get their act together (product wise), with their fine customer support, one would be able to recommend the product, but as of now, it's one quality control failure after another.
Then I realized I didn't know what I was waiting for. I took the plunge at got them just before going on a two-week business trip that involved a lot of walking. All I can say is this: If you are in a situation where you need crutches, whether from a temporary injury or a chronic disease, these are the ones you want.
* They look really sexy (I mean... for crutches that is);
* The spring-loaded legs make way more of a difference than I thought they would;
* Adjustable for various heights and builds;
* OMG the knee rests! I can't tell you how great they are after standing in a line at an airport ticket counter;
* Easy to assemble out of the box with clear instructions; and,
* Nice safety features (more on that below).
* Heavier than a standard forearm crutch - might be a bit harder to handle if you have some upper body weakness;
* If you're going to use the knee rests (and you should), you are going to have a Left crutch and a Right crutch. They're no longer ambidextrous;
* The knee rests aren't quite as simple to adjust as the rest of the stuff. You're going to need a screwdriver and some trial and error to get the height where you like it;
* The knee rests come with them at the highest setting so unless you are 9' tall, you are going to have to adjust them when you get them;
* Once you get the knee rests where you like them, the bolt that goes through the leg to the nut on the other side makes it so that the adjustable leg can only go so far before hitting the bolt. This makes things a bit tricky if you need to collapse them to go into an overhead bin or some other small-ish place. And unless you have a Phillips head screwdriver in your pocket, you can get the bolt out of the way. And we all know how much TSA likes it when you have a screwdriver in your pocket at the airport; and,
* The hand grip isn't quite as comfortable as I had thought it would be. They have this raised "hump" where your palms go that collapses a bit when you squeeze or apply downward pressure. But the only thing I have discovered is that they hurt my palms after a while. You can angle the hand grips in three orientations, and I haven't found that the angle helps with the hand grip issue. I'm not sure what the raised "rhino horn" thing is at the end of the grips either, but they look impressive.
As for the safety features, the front and side reflectors are great and not obnoxious, the lights that illuminate the ground in front of you I'm sure will come in real handy for those pitch black nights, but I found that they are nice even for walking on snow and ice just to give you a heads up of where you're walking. Good stuff.
But the last advertised safety feature? The "horn"? Let's just get one thing clear, if you are on crutches, chances are you aren't going to be moving so fast up behind somebody that it would necessitate the need for this feature. And they need not call it a horn. It's a "beep". Like a microwave telling you that your popcorn is done. The only real use I've found with these is for comedic effect:
"Wow! Those are some seriously cool crutches! Whoa, are those LIGHTS?"
"Oh son, you haven't even seen the BEST thing about these crutches. They come with a special reverse setting!"
I will then follow up that statement by walking backwards while repeatedly pushing the "horn" buttons to give me the "beep beep beep" of a garbage truck going in reverse. Corny, but it's great at parties. I really don't know what else to do with the feature.
These things are sturdy, but a little heavier than standard hospital-grade forearm crutches, but all that weight seems to be down at the spring-loaded tips, which, even though they are heavier, feel like that the extra weight is a non-issue because of the lower center of gravity of the crutch as a whole.
I like 'em! And my first real use was a pretty intense field test complete with air travel, industrial site tours, and lots and lots of walking. I would really recommend these to anyone that just needs some help getting from point A to point B.

Man!!! I wish I grabbed these on my second month.
The shocks help with the back pain !
The way they designed the grip, helps regain normal walking pattern fast.
The tiny, knee rest: so smart .
Comes with reflectors and lights lol. Just in case you want to go for a night walk to figure out how your going to get stronger: you can.
