Standard Aluminum Crutches from Medline are lightweight walking aids designed with built-in features that promote stability and comfort.
The most important function of a crutch is weight bearing, and with its double extruded center tube, this crutch provides that strength at the point where it is most needed. Its aluminum tubing is secured to the foot piece with durable rivets providing more stability than plastic connectors. And the center tube is constructed as an I-beam to help reduce any wobbliness when using the crutches.
The crutch includes innovative safety features such as the virtually unbreakable stair deflector. The stair deflector is mounted at the point where the center tube extrudes from the outer frame, and helps protect against the crutch slipping on or getting caught on stairs. It also increases stress tolerance of the crutch at all angles of use to prevent sudden cracking. The crutch is outfitted with non-skid rubber tips for good traction.
For easy use, the crutch is height adjustable (for the taller user) with easy to use push-button mechanism. The armrests and handgrips are made of comfortable but sturdy polyurethane material. Its built-in metal ring helps prevent excessive wear and ensures maximum durability.
Medline crutches are constructed under rigorous standards, and meet or exceed all relevant requirements and standards set by the FDA, ISO and other regulatory bodies. Medline crutches are backed by a lifetime warranty on the frame, and a 6 month warranty on components.
