"I have been using the INDESmed crutches for a month now and following is feedback which I hope is informative and useful.
Firstly I think they are great and have no regrets about the purchase.
The large size works for me and no need to cut down.
The pros and cons for me are
1. Look great
2. Extremely light which means less effort and the crutches do not fall over when not in use and propped up against furniture etc.
3. The design is very good and overall they fit well into the hand and forearm and feel very comfortable. The variable adjustment is excellent.
4. The ferrule (foot ) which I was concerned about is very good in use - good grip and flexes to the surface of the floor/ground - I have used Flexyfoot for a long time and was concerned that these would not be as safe but not a problem
5. Hand grips are good and as crutches are very lightweight it is much easier to carry things around whilst using the crutches.
6. At first I was worried about the width of the cuff as this is narrower than I am used to however very quickly get used to it and it works very well.
1. The obvious one - they are very expensive ( but worth it )
2. The handle is tightened using an alum key - this even when fitted very tightly does slowly come loose so the although safe a creaking noise develops. I reckon they need to be tightened up once a week.
3. Although the finish on the carbon fibre is a very good quality appearance it is susceptible to scratching if in contact with a rough surface so you have to be very careful.
4. The change to a very lightweight crutch takes a couple of days to get used to and care needs to be taken because it is a completely different experience from other makes of crutches.
Hope this is useful and thank you for an excellent service from your firm" Chris
