Highest Rated Arm Crutches

When recovering from an injury, it is important that you have the hardware required to help you move forward, literally and figuratively. Here we would like to note some of the highest-rated arm crutches available.

Crutches serve a crucial purpose in the recovery phase after a fracture or surgery. Without them, many patients would either remain bedridden or risk further injury by walking on a bad leg.


Millennial Medical in-Motion Pro Ergonomic Folding Crutch 

The Spring Assist Technology that is part of this crutch absorbs the impact from walking and uses that energy to support the patient’s movement. This technology makes the crutch’s springs quieter than traditional crutch springs and the soft rubber padding helps reduce friction and redirect pressure from each underarm.

Reviewer perspective: “These are the best! I can’t say enough good about these crutches! Amazing! Why??? Because they are so good and kind to your body at a time when just maneuvering about is a challenge al by itself. The crutch foot/bottoms are spring-loaded and hence make the crutch movement so much more gentle on your hands and shoulders as you move along.” 


iWALK2.0 Hands-Free Knee Crutch

The iWALK2.0 hands-free crutch can greatly increase mobility. This option gives the user hands-free, and therefore pain-free, specifically for mobility for below the knee non-weight bearing injuries. More importantly, this crutch provides the user with an independent, functional lifestyle. 

Reviewer Perspective: “I purchased the iWalk2.0 prior to my recent ankle tendon surgery. I have been able to do many tasks around the house easily when using the unit, including vacuuming inside, vacuuming pool, food prep, going to training meetings, etc. It is an innovative design but could use a few improvements.”


Drive Medical Forearm Crutch

This forearm crutch is packed with patient-centric features. The vinyl coated and ergonomically contoured arm cuff is molded for comfort and stability. Both the leg and forearm sections adjust independently without tools to ensure optimal comfort and personal sizing. The extra-large tips provide added stability to the crutch.

Reviewer Perspective: “My hospital provided crutches lasted 4 weeks. These are by far a better product, feels stiffer and the rubber feet grip the ground amazingly.”


DMI Crutches, Push Button Adjustable Crutches

These crutches include every element you will need to be mobile and they include comfortable crutch pads, hand grips, and durable, slip-resistant tips. The DMI crutches are great for recovering from injuries with lengthy recovery periods. 


Medline MDS805161 Aluminum Forearm Crutches

Telescoping parts are manufactured with internal bushings and external lock nuts to provide totally silent usage, vinyl-coated, tapered, contoured arm cuffs, high-strength aluminum tubing. Black components hide signs of wear and scratches

Reviewer Perspective: “I have CRPS and have to use a walking aid. I’ve used standard crutches that are very bulky and inconvenient and a cane that isn’t very stable and throws off the walking gait. With these, I can use 1 or both depending on my need. They are better than crutches because they stay on my forearm (with a sweater on) and frees my hands. I no longer have to worry about where to lean my walking aid if I want to look at something. This is much more stable than a cane. The comfort goes without saying. They do need hand pads for comfort. These are true medical grade and a bit heavier than standard crutches.”
