Medline Aluminum Crutches
The new Medline Aluminum Crutches now have a 300 lb. weight capacity. Until now, Medline and others in the industry only offered standard crutches that accommodated up to 250 lbs. For heavier patients, bariatric crutches were the only solution, which are much more expensive and cumbersome for patients. By modifying the manufacturing process, the Medline Aluminum Crutches have increased the hardness and strength of the aluminum tubing. The Medline Aluminum Crutches now offers facilities standard crutches that safely support over 97% of a typical facility's population. Medline Aluminum Crutches feature patented I-Beam construction on the center post that limits foot piece rotation, making it easier to adjust the height of the crutch. The I-Beam construction of the Medline Aluminum Crutches also provides greater strength, providing additional resistance to prevent the center tube from breaking. The Medline Aluminum Crutches include a limited lifetime warranty on the frame and a six month warranty on shoulder pads, push buttons, tips, grips and "wearable" parts.
