M+D Adjustable Forearm Crutches (Pair)

Traditional crutches leave much to be desired, and will often cause pain by putting extreme pressure on the hands, wrists and armpits – making them uncomfortable when used throughout the day. The M+D Adjustable Forearm Crutches bring some much-needed innovation to the area, distributing pressure evenly along the user's forearms and elbows to make them the most comfortable lightweight crutches on the market.

The M+D Forearm Crutches are supplied in one size to fit everyone from 4'11" - 6'8" (149 - 203cm), and are available in either Black or White. Select your desired colour using the drop-down menu above.

How Do the M+D Forearm Crutches Work?

Improving on the archaic design of standard forearm and axillary crutches, the M+D Crutches greatly improve user comfort by evenly distributing weight throughout the forearms and elbow, all but eliminating the hand, wrist and armpit pain caused by most crutches. Incorporating a lockable hinged arm cradle, flexible armbands and shock-absorbing feet, the M+D Crutches are designed to remain comfortable throughout the day, and work for you in your daily life.

Who Can Use the M+D Forearm Crutches?

These crutches can be used by virtually anyone who can use regular crutches, and even some who can't! Those who find regular crutches too painful or stressful on their wrists, hands and armpits will find these crutches much more comfortable, which increases patient compliance and makes getting around a whole lot easier.

The M+D Crutches are especially suited to people with conditions such as arthritis or Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS), which make it very uncomfortable to use standard crutches. By distributing pressure across the forearm, pain is lessened without inhibiting movement.

Special Features of the M+D Adjustable Forearm Crutches

These crutches are packed with innovative features to make them the most comfortable and convenient for your daily life, which can be seen in the diagram below. Some of the main features include:

  • Flexible Arm Bands: Easy to get in and out of, these arm bands will conform to the shape of the user's arm for a firm and secure fit
  • Lockable Hinged Arm Support: Designed to spread the weight evenly along your arm, the arm cradle can actually be unlocked to allow for easy reaching and other arm movements throughout your day
  • Rotating Handles: With the touch of the blue button on the end of the handle, it will swing down to allow full access for things like using keys, turning handles or shaking hands
  • Shock Absorbing Feet: These feet cushion the crutch's impact with the ground, providing minimal shock to your forearms with each step

Will These Crutches Fit Me?

The M+D Crutches are easily adjustable to fit most users, and suit anyone from 149 - 203cm (4'11" - 6'8") in height. This allows them to fit nearly anyone, and can be adjusted to fit multiple users.

Are These Crutches Lightweight?

Yes, these crutches are very light in weight, weighing in at just 1.3kg each. This light weight allows them to be used by people of all ages and strengths, and will increase patient compliance by allowing them to be used for each and every errand throughout the day.

How Much More Comfortable Are M+D Crutches Than Standard Crutches?

M+D Crutches don't just claim to be the most comfortable crutches on the market – they've actually done the research to back it up. In a survey of crutch users who have tried the M+D Crutches to replace their regular ones, M+D found a 373% improvement in reported pain to the hands and wrists, as well as a 124% improvement in pain to the forearms and elbows and a 67% improvement to shoulder pain. These numbers speak for themselves, and demonstrate the power of this innovative design!

How Do I Walk with the M+D Adjustable Forearm Crutches?

Are These Crutches Supplied As a Pair?

Yes, the M+D Forearm Crutches are supplied as a pair: one for the left, and one for the right. The right crutch features a single braille button located on top of the right crutch's handle release button, ensuring you will be able to tell the left and right crutches apart, even if you have to get up in the dark in the middle of the night.

How Do I Adjust the M+D Crutches?

As explained in the setup video above, all adjustments to these crutches can be made with the touch of a button, or with a coin or screwdriver. The adjustments are designed to be made with a coin, making it simple to make changes to your crutches – even when you're out and about!

How Do I Rotate the Handles?

Allowing you full freedom of movement with your hands, the handles of the M+D Crutches can be easily rotated away. To rotate the handles, simply push the button on the end of each handle. At this point, the handle will become loose, and you can simply let go as the handle swivels away to leave your hand free.

How Do I Detach the Armrest?

The armrests can be allowed to swivel upwards by pressing the unlock button beside the rest. This will allow you to reach out and grab items that other forearm crutches would block. To re-lock the armrests, simply press in the button on the other side of the rest.

Are These Crutches Suitable for Hospital Use?

Yes, the M+D Forearm Crutches are ideal for hospital use, and not only because they are easier and more comfortable to use. The armrests are antimicrobial and easy to wipe down, allowing these crutches to be safely disinfected in between use by multiple patients.

You need patience to get used to them after using normal crutches and mobility scooter, but I’ll get there. Only other comment is the price which is way too expensive

Crutches
Tuesday, 24 November 2020  | 

Bought for a friend. She's utterly delighted with product and much more mobile and confident having them! Delivery was next day so I'm happy too. Strength and quality of crutches are excellent. Would highly reccommend especially for respiratory issues... this product makes you walk more upright so takes pressure off lungs and diaphragm... happy people all round.

Amazing crutches!
Monday, 31 August 2020  | 

I bought these for my wife who needed to use crutches whilst waiting for an operation. Ordinary crutches hurt her hands and fingers as she suffers from osteoarthritis. These are amazing as weight is supported through the arms, meaning that she learnt to walk with them very quickly.

The rubber straps pinched her bare arms initially until they had been used for a while and stretched slightly. The hinged arm cradle is useful when answering the phone or drinking. The rotating handle is good when carrying something but does tend to get in the way of kitchen units, as doesn't retract. They are very well made and very easy to assemble, but aren't lightweight! Service was excellent and they came very quickly.
