RainGuards fit crutch shafts 3/4 to 7/8 inch in diameter. Why Are Rain-Guards Better Than Other Tips?
Rain-Guards custom radial design works like a car's tire to help channel the water away. Normal crutch tips with circular rings along the bottom actually trap water under the tip. When you push down, water is forced out between the ground and the ring, thus causing your crutch tips, cane tip or walker tips to hydroplane, significantly increasing your chances of falling. With Rain-Guards, your crutch tips, cane tip or walker tips always stay in contact with the ground, and the water naturally flows through the channels, away from the tip, and never comes between you and the ground. Great for preventing re-injury after anterior crucial ligament reconstruction surgery.
Actual Test Prove They Work!
Patty, the creator's wife, is post polio and since the age of four has used Canadian forearm crutches to be mobile. When she married Bob, he saw that Patty had a difficult time on snow and ice. He looked at hundreds of items and ruled out all of them due to “stability”, safety and true effectiveness. He then created and began to manufacture Snow Boots. Rain-Guards came later to make up a complete system to create a slip resistant way for users of crutches, canes and walkers to remain upright.
If you live in areas where it snows you should buy a pair of Snow Boots as well. Both Rain-Guards and Snow Boots are sold in pairs. Walkers require two pairs. Snow Boots are available here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0083K4QUE
Rain-Guards and Snow Boots are long wearing and provide the traction you are looking for each day as a user of cane tips, crutch tips and walker tips.
