Wooden Elbow Crutch

The client is young and active and had childhood polio. He uses commercially available aluminium elbow crutches but they fail at the length adjusters after about three months.  He asked if remap could provide something sturdier and longer lasting.

The solution

The replacement crutch was fabricated from 25mm square oak strip. The handle is glue laminated onto the stick with thin strips of  oak.  The arm grip is plastic and is recycled from one of the clients old crutches.  The crutch length was taken from one of the clients old crutches.

The benefit

The client enjoys a more rigid crutch which does not rattle.

    Good morning. I have Ms and require crutches to enable me to walk. I have been looking for a pair of wooden elbow crutches for ages and came across these.
    would it be possible to make me a pair and could you please give me a price.
    many thanks Nick
