People hate crutches. They hurt your arms, wrists and underarms. More than that, they make a functional, independent lifestyle impossible because you can’t use your hands and arms.
iWALK2.0 solves this problem in a simple, elegant way. Instead of supporting your weight on your hands and arms the iWALK2.0 is a LEG CRUTCH that uses the uninjured parts of your leg to support your weight. This allows hands-free, pain-free mobility and the ability to continue a normal, independent lifestyle. It’s easy and intuitive to learn and use.
So why would you use an arm crutch when a leg crutch works so much better?
Greater comfort- hands free/pain free
Ability to manage daily activities
Ability to maintain independent functional lifestyle
Push button spring adjustment works similar to standard crutches. Allows you to tailor to the length of your upper leg and lower leg independently. Always adjust the upper leg length as high as possible so that Thigh Supports are at the very top of your leg.
Upper leg adjustment range: 12.0” – 18.0”
Lower leg adjustment range: 13.75″ – 20″
The Thigh Supports recruit the upper leg to align and stabilize the crutch. Adjusts for thigh circumference from 15.5” to 28.0”. Left and Right are independently adjustable.
Are you Valgus (knock kneed) or Varus (bow legged)? Most of us are one or the other to some degree. Asymmetrical adjustment of the Thigh Supports compensates for both conditions – see Fitting and Use for more information.
CALF STRAP SLIDER MOUNT
The Calf Strap Mounts are on rails that run along the length of the Knee Platform. They can be repositioned by hand along the length of the rails to allow you to position the Calf Strap forward or back on the Knee Platform. You use this in cases where the standard Strap position (at the back of the Knee Platform) might irritate your injury. Below knee amputees will typically position the strap further forward to accommodate their residual limb.
