Just before Christmas I ordered a set of Tornado Solid Body Rain Crutch Tips from Thomas Fetterman. They came in the mail today. Holy moley, I wish I’d known about these weeks ago. They are slightly larger than standard tips, with a thick, flexible, scored bottom. The tips flex as the crutches rotate, keeping a LOT more surface area on the floor at any time. Hopefully that and the anti-slip surface will result in fewer falls and slipping (a problem for me since this whole mess started). With these tips, my crutches feel much more secure.
And though it sure doesn’t look like winter outside, I also ordered up a set of the ice grips which go with the Tornado tips. Again, well designed; they slip over the tips, then are easily pulled down into place when needed.
Anybody who is gonna be on crutches longer than a week should check out what Fetterman has to offer–much better than standard issue!
