The ED15 ErgoDynamic Forearm Crutches by FDI are the lightest crutch in the world with an integrated shock absorber. It is FDI’s premier design featuring an integrated shock absorber system that softens each step to avoid shock to the hands, wrists and shoulders. The unique shock absorber is integrated into the upper shaft and utilizes an exclusive in-handle linkage system offering smooth, silent operation throughout its 1.26 inches of (2.5cm) travel. This one of kind design provides greater feedback and control while providing positive forward momentum to the user. ErgoDynamic is available in 3 shock absorber weight range options.

Benefits of forearm crutches over underarm crutches
The underarm crutch might be preferred initially but if anyone has to be on crutches for more than 3-4 weeks they are looking for an alternative. Underarm crutches become extremely uncomfortable especially in the arm pits and sides of the upper torso. This is why 98% of long term crutch users (amputees, SPI, MS, EDS patients etc) prefer forearm crutches…comfort, less long term damage to axilla nerve, easier on hands and safer.
