Crutch Handgrips

Definition : Detachable handle coverings (i.e., handgrips) usually connected at both ends to the middle section of a crutch shaft allowing for grip on the crutch and keeping both the wrists and hands in natural position. These handgrips typically consist of hollow cylinders; some are split to slide over the crosspiece attached to the shaft. They are usually made of sturdy materials such as wood (e.g., walnut), plastic (e.g., rubber), or light metals (e.g., aluminum) or a combination of these; the handgrips are frequently padded externally for comfort. Crutch handgrips are used in axillary, forearm and platform crutches; they are intended to support the body weight and provide comfort to the user. They can easily be replaced when worn out or damaged.

Founded by a husband and wife team, Walk Easy was predicated on improving existing walking aids, with a focus on the forearm crutch.

Bringing a new product to market was difficult enough; altering people's perceptions proved immensely more challenging.
