Crutches are the first thing we think of when we fall and break, sprain, or injure a leg or ankle. Depending on the type of injury there are various types of crutches available. Forearm crutches are typically used for rehabilitation or longer term mobility needs while traditional crutches are typically used for shorter term injuries. Some crutches feature shock absorbency to make them more comfortable to use over a longer period of time. Contact your local Motion Specialties for product availability in your area.
