Aircraft aluminium is a high-quality material that offers higher corrosion resistance, durability as well as high strength with low weight and is still elastic.

Finally, you have both hands free while the crutch remains effortlessly attached to your arm.
The hanging arm cuff offers you a choice of two positions: open and closed, so you can stay in control. When walking with the walker, which comes in four exciting colours, we strongly recommend using the arm cuff in the open position.
