If you are a veteran, you may be able to get M+D Crutches through your VA facility. Be sure to talk to your VA health provider about M+D crutches and canes and discuss which option is best for you. Be sure to share these helpful talking points with your care provider to facilitate your conversation about the M+D Crutch as a solution for your mobility needs.
The M+D Crutch is rated for users up to 300 lb or 136 kg.
The M+D Crutch can accommodate users 4’ 11” to 6’ 8” or 1.50 m to 2.08 m.
For proper fit, the handle stem is adjustable (hidden under the cradle) to match the length of the user’s forearm, allowing them to comfortably hold the handle grip.
For best fit, the elbow should be snug at the back of the cradle with no pressure on the palm or hand while holding the handle grip. There is also flexibility with the armbands.
If the default armband position (one on each side) is too tight, the user may move them to a more comfortable location (3 different armband holes on each side), remove one of the armbands, or move both to one side using only a screwdriver.
All detailed instructions are provided in a small booklet with the purchase of the crutches.
The foam pad covering the cradle is roughly 4.54″ (width) by 10.57″ (length) with extra material supporting the elbow. The cradle has a wider, more open curve near the wrist to allow for flexibility and a slightly more narrow one near the elbow for stronger support.
The Refurbished M+D Crutch can be like new, but is not new. All refurbs have been inspected, cleaned and restored to ensure they are in like-new condition. The Refurbished M+D Crutch should function as well as a brand-new pair of the M+D Crutch.
Using the M+D Crutch feels very different than any other mobility aid. Although the pain relief to hands and wrists, as well as the improvement in posture is immediate for most, it takes a bit of time to get used to walking with the aid of a new device. The learning curve to adopting the M+D Crutch is different for each person depending on their level of mobility, balance, coordination and upper body strength. You can learn more about what to expect from you M+D Crutches here or you can email us or give us a call to discuss your concerns. We also suggest you watch the training videos and ABC of using the M+D Crutch to help you determine if it’s right for you.
The Combo Stix are rated for users up to 330 lb or 150 kg.
The Combo Stix can accommodate users 4’9” to 6’7’ or 1.44 m to 2.0 m.
Boxed dimensions are 32” x 5” x 11” or 81 cm X 28 cm X 13 cm.
The Combo Stix are to be used as a walking aid for patients who are non-weight bearing on a single lower extremity, or for users who require additional support when walking.
Platform mode is great for longer distances. Forearm mode is great for tighter spaces.
Platform mode benefit: No strain on hands and wrists. Uses elbows / forearms to fully support. Great for longer distances and less use of hands to support weight.
Forearm mode benefit: Great for tighter spaces, offers industry leading support and stability. More reclined position transfers more of user’s weight to elbow / forearm.
*Caution: Ensure leg is locked into snap button lever before use.
*Caution: If snap-button is stuck inside leg, stop use of crutch, use flat-head screwdriver to pop back out or contact your local customer support.
No. Combo Stix are only available as a pair.
