A pair of crutches refers to two crutches that are used together to provide support and assist with mobility. Crutches are a type of walking aid designed for individuals who have difficulty walking due to injury, disability, or other conditions affecting their lower limbs. A typical pair of crutches consists of two individual crutches, one for each arm.

A typical pair of crutches consists of two individual crutches, one for each arm. Each crutch is composed of several key components:
  1. Handgrips: These are the uppermost parts of the crutches that users hold onto with their hands. The handgrips are designed to provide a comfortable and secure grip while using the crutches.
  2. Uprights: The uprights are the vertical components of the crutches that extend from the handgrips to the cuffs. They provide the main structural support for the crutches.
  3. Cuffs: The cuffs are the components that wrap around the user's forearms, just below the elbows. They are usually padded to provide support and distribute the weight more evenly across the forearms.
  4. Tips: The tips are the bottommost parts of the crutches that make contact with the ground. They are typically made of rubber or other non-slip materials to enhance traction and stability while walking.
When using a pair of crutches, the user typically holds onto the handgrips while placing their weight on their hands and arms. The cuffs are positioned below the elbows to provide support, and the tips of the crutches are placed firmly on the ground to provide stability and assist with movement.

Forearm crutches, also known as elbow crutches or Canadian crutches, are mobility aids designed to assist individuals with limited mobility or injuries affecting their lower limbs. These crutches are primarily used to provide support and stability while walking or moving around. Forearm crutches consist of a handle, an adjustable forearm cuff, and a tip that makes contact with the ground. The handle is gripped by the user's hand, while the forearm cuff is positioned below the elbow to provide support. This design allows the user to bear weight on their forearms while walking, which can help alleviate pressure on the wrists and hands compared to traditional underarm crutches. Here are some common reasons why people may use forearm crutches:
  1. Leg injuries: Individuals with injuries or conditions such as fractures, sprains, or strains in the legs, ankles, or feet may use forearm crutches to offload weight and provide support during the recovery process.
  2. Mobility limitations: People with conditions that affect their ability to walk, such as muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, or multiple sclerosis, may use forearm crutches to enhance their mobility and maintain independence.
  3. Rehabilitation after surgery: Following certain surgeries, such as knee or hip replacements, forearm crutches may be used during the rehabilitation phase to aid in walking, promote balance, and reduce strain on the healing joints.
  4. Chronic conditions: Individuals with chronic conditions that cause mobility challenges, such as arthritis or neuropathy, may find forearm crutches helpful for reducing pain, improving stability, and conserving energy while walking.
It's important to note that proper fitting and technique are crucial when using forearm crutches to ensure comfort, stability, and optimal support. It is recommended to consult with a healthcare professional or physical therapist for guidance on selecting the right type of crutches and to learn the appropriate usage and techniques for your specific needs.
