Lofstrand crutches are a heavy duty adjustable forearm crutch that will hold up to the tough crutch user.
The Lofstrand brand has been around since the '50's. I know this because it was the first forearm crutch I used. They provided me with good service over the years though not without maintenance. The adjustment holes and the metal cuffs are the parts that wear-out. We do sell replacement cuffs when you need new ones.
The metal cuffs are vinyl covered and come in two styles: front or side opening. Please note your preference when ordering or we will assume you want the more common front opening style. The handgrips are made of solid vinyl and have finger notches on the bottom for easy gripping. There is a locking nut to keep the crutches silent. The adjustment locking pins utilize a stainless spring steel mechanism that will not rust. Of course I install your choice of my gel crutch tips to protect your shoulders for the long haul. They will also give you great wear and traction for the short haul. When ordering please fill in the crutch order form and give the X and Y dimensions so we can be sure to get you crutches that will fit properly.
To learn about the X and Y dimensions and some tips on sizing and measuring your crutches, check out our measuring page.
Adult LOFSTRAND crutches weigh 2-1/2 pounds each and are rated by the manufacture to safely support a user who weighs up to 250 pounds.
This is the same basic crutch described above with one important improvement. The leg-tube goes from the handgrip down into the tip is made of one solid tube with no adjustment holes to egg-out and rattle. You supply us with your exact X and Y dimensions on our crutch order form and we custom cut them to your exact height needs before installing a pain of my gel tips. We can make the Y grip to floor measurement up to 43" long. Your choice of gel crutch tips to protect your shoulders for the long haul.
X = 9 1/2” to 11” Y = up to 43”
