Smart crutches differ from standard medical crutches as, unlike regular crutches, your body weight is distributed through your forearms rather than your hands, shoulders and wrists. This allows for more even body weight distribution, improves posture and gait, greatly reduces pain in hands, wrists and shoulders and reduces fatigue. They are fully adjustable and can be used as both platform and forearm crutches. Smart crutches would be most suitable for someone who has had a lower body injury but otherwise still has good balance, mobility and upper body strength.
