iWALK 2.0 Hands Free Crutch

Why use an arm crutch when a leg crutch works so much better? The iWALK 2.0 Hands Free Crutch is a revolutionary product that helps you recover from injury while maintaining mobility, allowing you to carry on with your favourite daily activities.

What Is the iWALK 2.0?

The iWALK 2.0 Hands Free Crutch is a carefully engineered, multiple-award-winning medical mobility device that ends the pain and inconvenience of conventional crutches. Unlike traditional crutches, which rely heavily on your upper body strength and uninjured leg, the iWalk 2.0 allows hands-free use, which means you can easily get back to work and continue to lead an active life.

Will the iWALK 2.0 Crutch Work for Me?

While the iWALK 2.0 Crutch works for most people, it isn't for everyone. Before you decide to purchase the iWALK 2.0, answer the following questions:

  1. Before your injury, could you fluidly walk up and down stairs at a normal pace without using a hand rail?
  2. Can you balance on your healthy foot for a full 30 seconds?

If you answered the above questions with a sound yes, you are most likely a suitable candidate for using the iWALK 2.0. Other requirements include:

  • You are between 4’10” (147cm) and 6’6” (198cm)
  • You weigh 275 pounds (125kg) or less
  • Your maximum thigh circumference (at top of the leg) is 28" (71cm) or less
  • Your injury is to one leg only
  • Your injury is below the knee
  • You can bend your injured leg 90 degrees at the knee
  • You have full functionality in your uninjured leg
  • You have average strength and balance
  • Pre-injury, you could walk normally without a limp, shuffle, etc

With Which Conditions Can the iWALK 2.0 Be Used?

Almost any lower leg injury is indicated for use with the iWALK 2.0. The iWALK 2.0 is also a great way to keep your foot elevated after surgery or significant injury while still having mobility. Most common injuries include: foot fracture, sprained ankle, broken ankle, Achilles tendon rupture, Achilles tendon injuries, bunions, tibia fracture, fibula fracture, Jones fracture, plantar fasciitis, stress fractures (lower leg), below knee amputation, foot and ankle dislocations, foot ulcers, calf muscle tear, calf muscle strain, and gastrocnemius tear.

Why Is the iWALK 2.0 Superior to Regular Crutches?

The iWALK 2.0 is an obvious alternative to conventional crutches, allowing:

  • Hands free and pain free mobility
  • Self-sufficiency through the use of your hands
  • The ability to lead functional lives again
  • More efficient walking thanks to using the legs for support rather than the arms
  • Ability to navigate stairs easily and safely
  • Heightened well-being due to retaining an active, productive lifestyle

Benefits of the iWALK 2.0 Hands Free Crutch include reduced atrophy, improved mobility, and the ability to function better in daily activities. This includes getting around, going back to work, or even playing sports.

Is There an Age Limit for Using the iWALK 2.0?

While there is no age limit for using the iWALK 2.0, there is an "ability limit". This means that as long as you have average strength and mobility, and fit in with the other requirements outlined above, you are a great candidate for the iWALK 2.0. A good rule of thumb is if you can ascend and descend stairs without requiring the hand rail for balance or support, you can use iWALK 2.0.

Can I Use the iWALK 2.0 on Either the Left or Right Leg?

Yes, the iWALK 2.0 is designed to easily convert for left or right leg use. It also comes off in mere seconds, and can quickly be put back on.

Can I Wear Different Shoes with my iWALK 2.0 Crutch?

Absolutely, but if the height difference is more than half an inch, you'll probably want to adjust the height of the lower crutch. Luckily, height adjustments on the iWALK 2.0 Crutch are quick and easy.

Can I Still Use the iWALK 2.0 If I'm Wearing a Cast or a Boot?

Normally you can use the iWALK 2.0 with a cast without any problems, but is some situations with boots that are high on your shin, you can develop a painful "hot spot" at the upper edge of the boot or cast.

Using the iWALK 2.0 with a cast or boot may cause hot spots

This, however, can easily be solved with additional padding. You can use various foams, a folded hand towel, or other means to build up this area.

What If I Require More Cushioning?

While we would only recommend adding more padding to your iWALK if it is absolutely necessary as it can decrease the support's stability, cushioning can be added if needed. If a simple folded hand towel doesn't suffice, the Plastazote Foam Splinting Material is a viable option, as it is self-adhesive to be easily applied to your pad to provide extra cushioning.

Can I Walk the Stairs When Wearing the iWALK 2.0?

Navigating stairs on conventional crutches is dangerous and strenuous, but it can easily be done with the iWALK 2.0. This is one of the major benefits of using the iWALK 2.0 Crutch.

Can I Sit Down with the iWALK 2.0?

Yes, but you will need ample space in front of your chair for the beam below your knee to extend. If this is an issue, the iWALK 2.0 is quick and easy to put on and take off.

Will I Hurt My Knee If I Use the iWALK 2.0 Crutch?

There is a common misconception that your are kneeling on your knee when using the iWALK 2.0, but that's not the case. In reality, only your shin comes in contact with the knee platform. When the knee is bent 90 degrees, the patellar region is not in contact with the platform and thus does not bear any direct weight when using the iWALK 2.0.

Can I Wear the iWALK 2.0 If I Have a Broken Bone in My Lower Leg?

If the broken bone is in your foot or ankle, or if it's your fibula, the answer is almost certainly yes. If you have a broken tibia, then you probably can't use the iWALK 2.0.

Can I Use the iWALK 2.0 If I'm a Below the Knee Amputee?

Absolutely; in fact, the iWALK 2.0 is an everyday item for many BK amputees who use it in common situations when they don’t want to don their prosthetic leg. Examples include showering, short trips, at the gym, beach, etc. The iWALK 2.0 is commonly used as a prosthetic training device for new amputees who are learning to walk on a prosthetic limb, or for those who cannot yet tolerate a prosthetic limb.

Can I Wear the iWALK 2.0 If My Upper Thigh Is Larger Than 27"?

Unfortunately, 27" (69cm) at the top of your thigh is the largest that we recommend for a number of reasons. Firstly, going beyond can make it more difficult to tighten the straps as much as is necessary for proper function. Secondly, the quick release buckles on the straps might not function optimally because you may not be able to loosen the straps enough to allow easy engagement and disengagement.

Can I Use the iWALK 2.0 Crutch If I Have Diabetes?

Diabetic foot ulcers are often accompanied by neuropathy, or damage to the peripheral nerves of the foot. This can cause numbness and reduced proprioception, making basic balance difficult. If you have difficulties balancing on your non-affected limb, then you probably will not have success with the iWALK 2.0.

How Long Will My iWALK 2.0 Crutch Last?

The iWALK 2.0 Crutch is designed to last a very long time; much longer than the time you will need to recover. For additional peace of mind, the iWALK 2.0 comes with a one-year warranty.

How Do I Assemble the iWALK 2.0?

I cannot begin to say how much this has helped me - I ruptured my achilles tendon and had to use crutches - my upper body strength was not good so i struggled- this is an amazing gadget - I can get my housework done, go up and down stairs, carry my drinks/food and cook without restrictions. Am so pleased with my purchase.

No doubt about it, this is the best 150 pounds I can remember spending. Following Achilles reconstruction the full impact of my lengthy non-weight bearing period only really hit home when I ventured into the kitchen using my NHS-issued under-the-arm set of crutches to make my first cup of tea. Having made it, I then discovered how difficult it was to get it across to where I wanted to sit down and drink it. By day-2 I had advanced to wearing a small day pack and carrying my drink in a closed container in one of its side pockets.

I can't remember how I came across the photos of the iWalk2.0 on my Tablet - but it was on day-4 and even then I immediately saw some of the major benefits it had to offer. I thought the price very reasonable so ordered it on-line straight away. The product arrived just two days later and after only half an hour of fitting and tweaking I was off up to the supermarket at the top of our road. Brilliant!

If I'm honest that 'expedition' was probably a little early - or too long - for my first 'test drive' and I found it tiring. However, getting out of the house and being hands-free was just great and it was a real positive moment for me.I recently saw a doctor at my local health centre and she had never seen one before; she was all over it! Thought it a great idea and asked for my permission to take a photo so she could Tweet her support for it.

I'd recommend this product to anyone with a lower-limb injury that involves a period of non-weight bearing who wishes to maintain the freedom to be able to carry light loads or have the use of their hands generally.

Top Tip: Avoid over-confidence when wearing it. Every time I put it on I pause to remember my dodgy ice-skating days......back then, the moment I thought I'd cracked ice-skating I'd immediately fall on my butt! It's not made for running and I suspect using it for long distances or extended wear could give you circulation issues due to the strap immediately behind the knee but you know what, it's still the best gadget I've ever bought and it has been key to allowing me to get my head around the prospect of 6 to 8 weeks non-weight bearing
