Custom Aluminum Underarm Crutches

We have just completed are first pair of custom aluminum underarm crutches.  They are made exactly like our titanium crutches and have all the same features but can be made for less than 1/2 the price because we use high tensile aluminum tubing instead of titanium.

Safewalk™ Custom Aluminum Underarm Crutches

These crutches are “almost” as strong as our titanium crutches and that means that  they are very strong indeed.  Aluminum is more flexible and has different surface characteristics then titanium but we are very happy with they way they turned out.  At the moment we are waxing these crutches to prepare the surface but if there is demand we will also be able to have them anodized in different colors.

Another feature of making these crutches from aluminum is that they are unbelievably light.  For small to medium size people these crutches just might be the best compromise of weight, strength, safety and reliability.  They will almost certainly be the last crutches you  will ever need to own.

Other features shared with our titanium crutches include:

  • Double footed design also presents a much larger surface area which facilitates negotiating soft ground
  • Flush design so the crutch will not hang up or rip fabrics when brushed up against.
  • Available attachment points for flashlights and shopping bags etc.
  • Underarm crutch pads that are ultra-thin to reduce chafe.
