iWALKFree is a lightweight, adjustable, hands free crutch that is designed for use by people with non-weight-bearing lower leg injuries. The device supports the knee and upper leg using a universal, ambidextrous fastening system that allows for almost any adjustment for user height and leg size. Made from aluminium and plastic, the crutch wraps around the upper leg and has a support platform for the flexed knee and lower leg.

General Details

Extra product information

iWALKFree is an alternative to traditional crutches, allowing its users:
- self-sufficiency through the full use of their arms and hands
- increased opportunity to take an active part in their lives and their rehabilitation

The Crutch has been designed to be comfortable, lightweight, and compact. It is fully adjustable to meet the needs of adults and young people of varying height.

CONSTRUCTION
iWALKFree is constructed of UV resistant and hypoallergenic materials, and comprises 4 simple parts:
. one stable beam with tread
. one supportive locking tray with strap
. two comfortable padded straps with integral cam clips

ASSEMBLY AND FITTING
. trim the beam to equal the inseam measurement
. with the user seated with leg bent at a 90-degree angle, measure the distance from the back of knee to the ground of the unaffected limb. This determines the height for the top of the tray
. to attach the tray, unlock the front cam clip; disengage locking pin; slide tray onto the beam; lock pins; lock cam clip at the front of the tray
. to attach the straps*, unlock cam clip of lower strap; slide onto beam just above knee; lock cam clip; repeat with upper strap; slide onto beam just below groin; lock cam clip
. install beam cap
*all straps can be flipped for right or left handed use

TO CHECK FOR CORRECT FIT
When walking with iWALKFree, the user should be able to swing their leg freely front to back without catching it on the ground. If the leg can't move freely, then iWALKFree is too long, and needs to be readjusted

. place knee of affected leg on tray; fasten tray strap to a snug, comfortable fit
. fasten lower strap to a snug, comfortable fit around leg just above knee
. fasten upper strap to a snug, comfortable fit around leg just below groin
