Crutches, Forearm

Definition : Crutches supported by the forearms that are designed to provide the user with additional support while walking. These crutches consists of two pieces of light metal tubing that are telescoped one within the other to adjust to the correct height of the user, swivel-action arm cuffs that fit partially around the forearm; handgrips covered with a rubber grip; and a rubber tip at the distal end that meets the floor. Forearm crutches are designed to allow the user to slip his arm into the cuff and thus hold the grip tightly. The cuff can be semi-circular or circular in shape, with a V-shaped opening on the front from where the arm can be slid into the crutch. They are typically made of sturdy materials such as light metals (e.g., aluminum, titanium), plastic (e.g., rubber), or a combination of these. Collapsible (i.e., folded/adjustable) forearm crutches are also available. Forearm crutches are intended to be used by individuals suffering from some sort of permanent physical disabilities.
