The Cruchers Foot Attachment for Crutches is an apparatus that is attached to the rubber foot of a crutch to provide for more secure and easy travel over rough and/or slippery terrain.
Inventor William L. Hobbick, who is a disabled decorated Gulf War Marine, has created an apparatus that is attached to the rubber foot of a crutch to provide for more secure and easy travel over rough and/or slippery terrain.
People with physical disabilities, such as the elderly, the handicapped, or those recovering from injuries or surgery know all too well the difficulties they encounter while performing tasks that most of us take for granted. Many people rely on the use of crutches for mobility. The small footprint of a crutch, however, means it tends to sink into soft surfaces such as snow or sand. Additionally, when crutches are used on wet surfaces, users can slip and become seriously injured. When youre forced to use crutches, the last thing you want to worry about is them making you fall! In turn, he was inspired to create the Cruchers Foot Attachment for Crutches!
This clever new invention is placed over the rubber cap-style foot found on the bottom of crutches. Each attachment is made of lightweight strong aluminum with a non-slip rubber sole, with a slight taper at the front and back. A universal swivel joint allows it to lay flat against the ground no matter the angle of the crutch. The wide area of the base provides a large area of weight distribution so crutches will no longer sink into outdoor surfaces. Want to learn more about how you can feel confident on your crutches?
