Description of the Medline New Aluminum Crutches, 300lb Capacity Youth, Pair
Until now, Medline and others in the industry only offered standard crutches that accommodated up to 250 lbs. For heavier patients, facilities had to use bariatric crutches, which are much less cost effective and more cumbersome for patients. For the typical hospital, approximately 7% of its crutch usage is bariatric at a cost of almost 6 times the cost of a standard pair of crutches. By modifying the manufacturing process to increase the hardness and strength of the aluminum tubing, Medline is now able to offer facilities standard crutches that safely support over 97% of a typical facility#s population. Key Features of Medline#s New Crutches:
300 lb. weight capacity.
Patented I-Beam construction on the center post limits foot piece rotation, making it easier to adjust the height of the crutch.
I-Beam construction provides greater strength than traditional round tubes to resist breaking in the most vulnerable part of the crutch, the center tube.
Limited lifetime warranty on frame.
Six month warranty on shoulder pads, push buttons, tips, grips, and "wearable" parts.
