Walk Easy model 495 is an economical adjustable forearm crutch that comes in many colors. This European aluminum lightweight crutch weighs in at slightly less than 2 pounds per crutch. The Ergo Grips fit the right and left hands individually so the crutches cannot be switched from hand-to-hand. The grip holds the hand so the wrist is not bent as much as a regular grip. The grips are also tilted up so the weight tends towards the heel of the hand where there is the most padding.
I found that the angle of the cuff was too steep. This made the back of my arm feel uncomfortable and I felt my center of balance to be too far behind the crutch. To remedy both of these problems I added a set of my padded leather cuff inserts (a $47.95 value) for comfort and to move my center of gravity forward so I was more on top of the crutch handles. The cuff inserts also can easily be pulled out to give more room when wearing bulky winter coats.
Crutches are equipped with my Tornado AIR Fatigue-Reducing Crutch Tips ($19.95 value). Tornado Air crutch tips provide excellent shock absorption to protect hands, arms, and shoulders from the deleterious ground impact forces. Tornado Air tips are flexible to engage the tip's full bottom with the ground for positive traction. While they are not "slip-proof," they will give you a significant safety advantage on wet smooth surfaces.
