Mobilegs Crutch Review

Review of Product: Mobilegs Ultra

I contacted @Mobilegs from my hospital bed at Mayo Clinic, following the 4th surgery on my femur. They got back to me within an hour and let me know where I could pick up a pair on my way home to the cities.

Having spent a cumulative 2+ years on crutches out of the last five, I've come to find out what works and what doesn't. The hugest problem I faced with traditional crutches was the chaffing on my rib cage. Nothing is cuter than bloody ribs, right? Wrong. Forearm crutches were better, but felt clumsy and less-sturdy.

Enter Mobilegs, and I can only wish I found out about them earlier. I've gone on countless walks around the lake and done an official 5K on these crutches. They are infinitely more comfortable - I have never had any rib-bleeding problems - and increased comfort means increased patient compliance.

Yesterday was my 5th, and expectedly final surgery, and I am back to my Mobilegs for the next 4-6 weeks. "Looking forward to it" would be a stretch, but at least I know the crutches won't have any part in the discomfort that follows. I can't say thanks enough to the makers of Mobilegs, and I'm sure my surgeons are thankful for you too!
