  1. I like how a lot of details are presented in this article which I didn’t know before. I love this website,and will frequent it as I have lower back and shoulder pain always.

    • Hi Anita,
      Thanks so much for checking in again. I’m glad that you found the information helpful in treating your lower back and shoulder pain. The mission of this website is to help people live with less pain.

  2. Great article, Thabo. They say you learn something new every day, and I just did! I never knew that such a thing existed – where was it when I needed one after my foot surgery? It would have come in handy. Yes, the pain in your palms, your wrist and shoulders are real – I have been there.
    Thanks so much for sharing, Thabo.
    All the best.

    • Hi Michelle,
      I never stop being impressed at the latest developments in pain management. I think the knee crutch is a great answer for people who don’t want to deal with the shoulder and wrists pain that are common with conventional crutches. Thanks for checking in.

  3. Thabo,
    I broke my heel bone in Sept of last year, still recovering. This is one of the items (the knee crutch) my Dr. suggested to get. I used regular crutches one day and fell.
    My dad had a knee walker with wheels and I borrowed it because insurance was not going to pay for the Knee crutch.
    The knee walker kept me mobile when I could not weight bear on my foot. It was great for getting around and you were able to use your arms when you were not moving.

    • John,
      I think the first thing that caught my eye about the iWalk is the fact that you are able to use your arms for other activities. So for example, one can go ahead and fetch their own coffee instead of being waited on. I think this is a big improvement on traditional crutches. Thanks for checking in. I always appreciate your insightful comments.

  4. Thank you for posting this as it is great information for those who struggle during injuries or even surgery. I know my sister could have used this when she broke her femur a couple of months ago. Your article is great and explains your product very well. Thank you again.

    • Hi, Xavier. It’s always a pleasure to hear from you. I hope your sister is feeling a lot better now. Yes, I think you’re right about the iWalk. It will be a big help for people who are dealing with an injury such as a broken femur, while giving them more freedom to use their hands. Thanks a lot for checking in.

  5. This is a great article. I have been on crutches and I truly wish I would have been able to use something like this instead! It was such a bother and it did hurt the under arm area. I totally agree with your statement about using crutches is like suddenly deciding to go to the gym every morning to exercise only your arms with no rest days. That is very true and exactly how I felt.

    Once again, great article and very informative.

    Kind Regards,
    Yvette

    • I know a lot of back pain sufferers who experienced the same discomfort when using traditional crutches. Their experiences, much like your own, inspired me to look into an alternative that wouldn’t require the use of the hands and shoulders. I think the knee crutch is the perfect answer. I’m glad that you found the post useful. Thanks for checking in. Kind checking in, Yvette.

  6. Well Thabo I tell you what I’ve never seen anything like this you may be on to something here. The things they come up with you maybe just right on this one, it maybe the future of getting around with foot injury.

    • Hi Fred,
      I was also amazed the first time I saw these knee crutches. You’re right. I think they very well might be the future of getting around with foot injury. Thanks for checking in.
