For those recovering from foot injuries such as; breaks, sprains, amputations, surgery, or ulcers rely on a Knee Walker with Steering and/or the iWalk2.0 abilities to assist with everyday mobility.
We hear this from our customers all the time. Crutches hurt. They’re hard to walk in. Navigating stairs is dangerous. Underarms get bruised and rubbed raw. Arms and shoulders fatigue. But most of all, crutches fall short because they don’t allow you to use your hands. iWALK2.0 is a hands free crutch substitute. It’s a first of its kind mobility device that frees you from the limitations of conventional crutches. Just as our name implies, iWALK2.0 allows you walk with your hands free, allowing you to live a normal and active life that would be impossible with conventional crutches.
For most people suffering lower leg, foot and ankle injuries, the answer is YES! iWALK2.0 is a great way to improve your qualify of life during your rehabilitation. That said, since every physique and every injury is unique, we recommend that you always consult with your health care professional before using the iWALK2.0.
The bottom line is that losing the use of a lower leg, foot, or ankle should not also mean losing the use of your hands and arms. The most obvious benefit of the iWalk leg crutch in comparison to conventional crutches, is that it is hands-free. Hands-free means that there is no interruption to your normal day-to-day routine. It may sound basic, but it is a freedom that conventional crutches or other crutch alternatives (such as knee scooters) cannot provide.
We are the best crutch alternative (no, we aren’t just bragging) because the iWALK 2.0 makes it possible to do things like walking the dog, cooking, making copies, opening a door – simple tasks that take on a whole new level of difficulty when you use conventional crutches. With iWALK 2.0 as your crutch alternative, you can live the lifestyle you did before your injury. With iWALK 2.0 as your crutch alternative, you don’t have to adjust your lifestyle for weeks or months as your injury heals. Instead, you can simply continue your typical routine.
