I used to use standard crutches in the style of both hand and underarm, but due to increased pain from using them and more joint problems, I had to use a wheelchair instead. I then had to go for spinal surgery and needed a form of crutches in order to learn how to walk again, so these were really helpful for me and would be very good for those that struggle with their wrists and hands.
It takes practice to get used to the unique design if you have a non-weight bearing limb, especially if you have poor balance as the pressure is through your forearms, but it’s nothing that you can’t get used to. Then once you get used to it, there are no problems when it comes to getting around!
