iWALK This Way

Tuesday, 21 June 2016  |  Admin

Sports can be tough, and one thing that can quickly sideline you is injury. Injuries to the lower leg in particular can keep you off the pitch, the road or the track for a long time and really restrict your mobility. Many athletes or sportspeople will be all too familiar with crutches, and will probably not have the greatest memories of them.

Unwieldy, unstable and just plain inconvenient, regular crutches allow you to get around, but at a price. You might not know, though, that there's an alternative out there that will drastically improve your mobility while you're recovering; the iWALK 2.0 Hands Free Crutch. 

What is the iWALK 2.0?

The iWALK 2.0 is an innovative hands free crutch, which allows pain free mobility for a range of lower leg and foot injuries. Walking with crutches, or awkwardly manoeuvring a knee scooter doesn't have to be a struggle any more. Simply strap on the iWALK, and get back to your active lifestyle.

What Injuries is the iWALK Suitable For?

The iWALK is the perfect choice for a range of injuries to the lower leg and foot, such as:

  • Achilles tendon rupture
  • Sprained/broken ankle
  • Metatarsal fracture
  • Jones fracture
  • Broken feet
  • Bunions/foot ulcers
  • Tibia/fibula fractures
  • All other non-weight bearing lower leg injuries

Why is the iWALK 2.0 Superior to Regular Crutches?

The iWALK 2.0 is an obvious alternative to conventional crutches, allowing:

  • Hands free and pain free mobility
  • Self-sufficiency through the use of your hands
  • The ability to lead a functional life again
  • More efficient walking thanks to using legs rather than arms for support
  • Ability to navigate stairs easily and safely
  • Heightened well-being due to retaining an active, productive lifestyle

Other benefits of the iWALK 2.0 Crutch include reduced atrophy, improved mobility, and the ability to function better in daily activities, whether that's getting around, going back to work or even playing sports.
