The I-Walk Free hands-free crutch and temporary lower leg prosthetic - Made in the USA.
To use simply kneel on the lower leg platform which bears most of your weight.
You can comfortably kneel on your shin for extended periods without experiencing discomfort or fatigue.
The three straps cinch around your leg to stabilize you during standing and walking. Your hands and arms are not involved giving you freedom to carry items and go about your day.
Typical injuries that a hands-free crutch are appropriate for include (but are not limited to) any sprain, strain, fracture, dislocation or surgery to the lower leg, ankle or foot. Common conditions we experience are sprained ankles, fractures of the lower leg, foot or ankle, Achilles tendon injuries and surgeries, foot surgeries such as bunion or foot ulcer correction. The iWALK 2.0 crutch is also useful as a gateway device during prosthetic limb transition periods or as a shower/swim prosthetic for users of permanent prosthetic limbs. In short, if you’ve sustained an injury to your lower calf, ankle or foot, and you need to be non-weight bearing, then iWALK 2.0 crutch is a great option to avoid the pain and inconvenience of conventional crutches.
If you are suffering from lower leg, foot, and ankle injuries and are required to be non-weight bearing during recovery, then you can use the iWalk 2.0 crutch to improve your quality of life during rehabilitation.
However, every injury is unique, so we always recommend that you consult with your health care professional before choosing any rehabilitation device.
A good quick test to see if the iWALK 2.0 might be suitable is to place the shin of the injured leg (with your leg bent 90 degrees) on a padded bench or chair. If you can carry weight in this manner for a few minutes and the shin and knee remain comfortable, this is a very good indication that iWALK 2.0 will work for you.
There are exceptions to the guidelines provided above, so if you fall outside of those listed here, don’t be discouraged – just give us a call so we can discuss your specific circumstances.
