How to choose your size?
Every carbon forearm crutch is fully adjustable simply by moving the cuff and Hand-Grip along the curved area, but each size has been designed to maximize ergonomics and user comfort. Each size relates to a user’s height range; this way, for example, size L is intended for a user height of between 1,75m(69″) and 1,85m(73″).
You can see the relationship between user’s height and crutch size below.
If you are a forearm crutch “expert”, you can measure the total length of your current crutch (see above), and check this length with the corresponding crutch size length described in the below (h):
|Advised size according user’s height||see right fig.(h)|
|XL||185cm(73″) / 195cm(77″)||h=118cm(46″)|
|L||175cm(69″) / 185cm(73″)||h=110cm(43″)|
|M||165cm(65″) / 175cm(69″)||h=105cm(41″)|
|S||155cm(61″) / 165cm(65″)||h=100cm(39″)|
