Gold Medal for Crutches

The iWALK 2.0 Hands Free Crutch is a revolutionary product to help you recover from injury while maintaining mobility. Playing sport is great, but it comes with risks in the form of injury. Traditional arm crutches are difficult to use and impact your daily life, making for an agonising wait to get back on the pitch. With this hands free crutch, you can maintain an active lifestyle straight after injury, while keeping your leg in a great position to aid recovery.

Easy to learn and use, it's time to get your life back now. Check the qualifications below and the 'Who Can Use It?' tab to ensure that the iWALK 2.0 is right for you.

About the iWALK 2.0

Stable, economical and easy to use, the iWALK2.0 is the obvious choice over conventional crutches or knee scooters. It allows people with lower leg non-weight bearing injuries to lead functional, hands free, pain free lives during rehabilitation. It’s also a clinically proven, Class 1 Medical device.

Think of all the things you can’t do when using conventional crutches; walking your dog, carrying a cup of coffee, pushing a shopping trolley. You no longer need to have your life interrupted – the iWALK2.0 allows you to resume your daily routine and enjoy functional mobility.

Qualifications

Before your injury, could you go up or down stairs without using a hand rail? If yes, then iWALK2.0 is for you! Most people with normal strength and balance can use the iWALK2.0, but check the qualifications before you buy.

Typical injuries that are indicated for iWALK2.0 include Achilles tendon rupture, sprained ankle, broken ankle, bunion, jones fracture, metatarsal fractures, broken foot and all other lower leg, non weight bearing 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

Benefits of the iWALK 2.0 Hands Free 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.

Sizing of the iWALK

Please see the "Instructions for Use" tab above for info on sizing.

Who Can Use the iWALK 2.0?

The iWALK 2.0 will work for most people, but not everyone. For your safety and satisfaction, before you buy, make sure you read and understand the sizing and user qualification guidelines.

Basic Physical Requirements

Regardless of age, if you can pass these two physical ability tests, you should be capable of using the iWALK 2.0. If you can’t pass, we’re sorry, but you probably cannot adapt to the iWALK 2.0.

Stair Test

Before your injury, could you easily walk up and down stairs at a normal pace, without using a hand rail?

Balance Test

Can you balance on one foot for a full 30 seconds?

If you can do these two things, continue reading to ensure that iWALK 2.0 will work for you:

  • Before your injury, could you walk without difficulty?
  • Is your injury to one leg only?
  • Is your injury below the knee?
  • Can you bend your injured leg 90 degrees at the knee?
  • Are you between 4’10” and 6’6″?
  • Are you under 125kg?
  • Is your upper thigh circumference (measured at the highest point of your thigh) 27″ or less?

If you answered yes to all, then read on, and get ready to ditch your crutches.

iWALK 2.0 will work for you if:

  • You commit to viewing and following the instructions for Fitting and Use BEFORE your first use
  • You have average strength and balance
  • You could walk without limitations prior to your injury or condition
  • Your uninjured leg does not have any mobility limitations (example – arthritic knee)
  • Your injury or condition is below the knee
  • You can kneel on a stool or chair for one minute without pain or discomfort
  • Your injured leg can bend 90 degrees at the knee
  • You are motivated to have a hands free, pain free rehabilitation
  • You are between 4’10” and 6’6” tall (147cm to 198cm)
  • You weigh 125kg or less

iWALK 2.0 is Not Suited For:

  • People that insist on trying to use the device before viewing and understanding the Fitting and Use instructions provided
  • Those with mobility limitations prior to their injury
  • Those with impaired strength or balance
  • Those with limited proprioception in their lower extremities

Age limits

If you’re over the age of 55, pay careful attention – iWALK 2.0 might not be for you. It’s difficult to put an age limit on the iWALK 2.0 because physical condition varies from individual to individual – especially in the elderly. iWALK 2.0 has been used successfully by users in their 70’s and beyond, but we’ve also seen people in their early 60’s who couldn’t adapt. You do not need to be an elite athlete to use the iWALK 2.0- but you do need average strength and balance. Personal assessment and sound judgement are your best tools to determine if an elderly candidate will succeed.

Summary

If you could walk without limitations pre-injury, then iWALK 2.0 can give you back your ability to walk. If you couldn’t, then iWALK 2.0 cannot give you what you did not have.

This is a must have item for anyone with a lower leg injury. I have a broken ankle and this knee crutch has given me back my independence. I can now carry things my self very easily. Climbing the stairs feels much safer too. Much better than elbow crutches alone. It doesn't take long to get it set up to fit just right and with a little practice, you can walk without using your hands.
Amazing piece of kit!!

Gives back mobility
Sunday, 25 November 2018  | 

I am a 62 year old woman, using this product.
It was a bit tricky to put together on my own, would be great if there was a an already put together option. It is almost impossible to function on crutches but this walker gives you back the ability to move around with your hand free. I would advise using one crutch when walking outside only because of the unevenness of pavements and volume of people, but on familar territory not necessarily. Going upstairs no problem, a certain technique is required going down, and takes a bit of practise. People have been astounded at my mobility and at what I have been able to acheive. I could have done with more padding in the knee area, I have to wear blister plasters everyday on my knee. A certain level of fitness is required, but persevere, the freedom it gives you is worth it.

Saved my Bacon
Thursday, 14 June 2018  | 

After breaking my left foot 3 weeks ago I had one and a half weeks of "hell" using two crutches and not able to put any weight on that foot. I'm in Plaster and can't put weight on my left leg for 10-12 weeks from accident.

Spotted this online and Think sport delivered it next day. I'm now back at work and able to walk round and carry drinks etc both of which would not have been possible with crutches.

Plus points
- Well made, I'm 6ft 3in and 16 stone and it feels totally solid.
- Watch the videos online it really is easy to learn (1/2 a day to get fully there)
- Using to top of my left leg so should be less muscle wastage and rehab when the cast comes off
- WAY better than crutches
- Seen people online saying the padding provided is not up to scratch but I'm fine with it as is (4,000 steps a day) - I think the design must have been updated?

Minus points
- Takes a while to get fit right - probably not till day two.
- Can't switch quickly between sitting and standing so you have to plan out what you're doing in advance.
- Take care as confidence grows it is VERY easy to catch the bottom of the walker as you go along (scrapes ground/carpet) and this can give you a real shock. You have to make sure you lift the leg well clear of the ground EVERY time. I'm a week and a bit in and still do this about once a day - doing about 4,000 steps a day now.

Summary - If you have a non-weight bearing leg for any period of time you should look at using this as an alternative to crutches.

Freedom from crutches maintained my sanity!
Tuesday, 24 April 2018  | 

Itís a well made device which arrived the day after my order was placed.
I had foot surgery but hated the fact that using crutches turned me into a spectator because I could not do anything with my hands. The iWalk2.0 meant that I could do many of my usual jobs around the house and garden and care for my ponies, making me much more independent again.

I found that the strap behind my knee needed carful positioning to avoid restricting blood flow back from my foot, but otherwise, I set up and used the device exactly as described in the instructions without difficulty.

Gave me my life back
Friday, 23 February 2018  | 

I have fractured my ankle and managing everyday things on crutches was incredibly hard work,in fact many things were impossible. This crutch has transformed my recovery period. Being able to walk hands free means I can once again do simple things like carrying a cup of tea from one room to another, load and unload washing machine etc. It may seem expensive but it is totally worth it. Delivery was prompt too.

Itís a revelation!
Thursday, 1 February 2018  | 

I canít fault Think Sports service and the iWalk2.0 has made all the difference in the world. By giving me back my two hands i have also regained most of my independence, I couldnít even carry a cup of tea before when I was using my usual crutches. It is a bit heavy, and not the easiest when you want to sit (mostly I have to take it off) and I do still take a walking stick if the ground is uneven (makes me feel more secure), but these are small issues indeed. It took me may be half an hour to get the hang of it and in short, I love it!

Great - hands free
Wednesday, 17 January 2018  | 

I broke my ankle and was really struggling with traditional crutches especially as I have tennis elbow on both elbows. The iwalk 2 is much easier and safer than crutches especially on stairs and steps.

Unlike crutches, it took the pressure off my good leg especially knee and ankle. A bit of a nuisance having to take it off to sit down but still great compared with crutches. I could do the housework, cooking, etc. but as I have a problem with my knee I would only wear it for about two hours and then take it off and sit down and elevate my leg for an hour or so.

After a few days, the strap behind my knee got scrunched up and the length adjustment section needed tightening quite often otherwise I couldn't sufficiently tighten the strap at the grey tensionlock. When walking outdoors, because the ground is wet/slippery, I would also use a walking stick - doing so made it possible to walk uphill and downhill too. The iwalk2 was a bit expensive as I only needed it for four weeks but I think it was worth it.

Helped me out while I was non-weight bearing while my leg was in plaster. It gave me the freedom to carry out the usual house holds chores. I would certainly recommend the i walk to any one during this plaster stage.
