Improved Cooper’s Elbow Crutch (ALC1003 Series)

Elbow Crutch Proof

The handle has been designed to spread the pressure more evenly on the hand, particularly away from the heel of the palm and the area between the thumb and the forefinger.

The handle is slightly wedge shaped to accept a wide range of hands, and the front is humped to reduce any tendency to slide off. The triangular main body of the handle reflects the natural formation of the hand when clenching an object, as does the 8 degree angle the handle is set on.

A. Photograph was taken two minutes after 5 minutes of weight bearing walking, with traditional and new style elbow crutches in seperate hands. The hand which used the traditional crutch shows a substantial hyperaemic reaction – where the blood has concentrated in the areas most traumatised by the exercise.

‘The test showed the new design to be a significant improvement over the standard handle.’

Cumfy Elbow Crutches. (ALC1004, ALC1005 Series)

A result of two years in development work using special design techniques, this patent handle has superior pressure distribution characteristics than those of any conventional crutch.

B. Thermograms showing temperature gradients taken before and after trials, where the subject was supported by a conventional crutch in right hand and Cumfy Crutch in the left hand.

C. After the trial the hand resting on the conventional crutch shows a substantial hyperaemic reaction – where blood has concentrated in the areas most traumatised by the exercise. Patent numbers 2184012 & 2155785.
