Handless Crutches Aid Healing Process

Handless Crutches Aid Healing Process

Injuries are challenging but recovery doesn’t have to be! With continual advancements in surgical technologies, imaging procedures, and recovery devices, there is no time like the present to easily recover. After decades of seeming stagnancy, durable medical equipment developers, like those of the Freedom Leg, are stepping out of the box and creating innovative devices from handless crutches to robotic limbs. It’s time to change the narrative of healthcare mediocrity and empower the injured with state-of-the-art assistive device technology.

Today we’re reviewing one of the best advancements in functional mobility namely handless crutches. Handless crutches are just as they suggest: a device that offloads your injured leg while keeping your arms free to perform day-to-day activities. 

Ask any crutch user what their biggest complaint is and we guarantee the lack of arm and hand functionality will top the responses. Handless crutches are different from traditional crutches. They don't require upper body strength and offer more mobility, enhancing improved functionality and reducing the risk of further injury. 

How do you walk with handless crutches?

So the concept is great, but how does it work? Handless crutches work by redirecting weight-bearing force from the ground, past your injured body part to a proximal segment. Instead of offloading the load through your arms as seen in traditional crutches, they simply divert the force to the hip, knee, or pelvis depending on the setup and unique product. Maintaining a slight amount of knee flexion, they encourage neutral pelvic and spinal alignment protecting you against compensatory injuries. 

They also encourage a normalized gait pattern from the get-go, with device advancement with the same mechanics as you would use in normal walking. And the best of all? Handless crutches leave your hands free to complete everyday tasks that we otherwise take for granted. Carry your groceries, walk your dog, or push your baby stroller with ease and independence.

How do handless crutches aid in the healing process of injuries?

Besides their innovative design, handless crutches can contribute to a reduced recovery time and help users avoid further injuries. We all know that traditional crutches are uncomfortable for your wrists, armpits, and shoulders and can even lead to secondary injuries. Assistive devices should assist, not restrict the user and handless crutches seek to do just that. By empowering the user, patients can resume both occupational and recreational activities quicker and with more confidence. 

Handless crutches also reduce recovery time by encouraging early and frequent functional mobility. With a handless device, walking is as easy as a strap, unload, and go. Early mobilization has been directly linked to enhanced recovery, reduced healthcare costs, and reduced postoperative complications. Giving yourself the freedom to move is one of the greatest things you can do to boost your mood and get yourself set down the right path to recovery.

What can you do with your handless crutches?

Curious what you can achieve with the use of handless crutches? The possibilities are endless but a few benefits include:

Handless crutches are more comfortable and freeing and promote enhanced independence in every aspect of daily living. It should be a no-brainer then that they are the obvious choice for those looking to expedite recovery and get back to living.
