Just think of all the things you can’t do when using conventional crutches: prepare a meal, push a shopping trolly, tidy your home, carry a drink, hold your child’s hand. Even empty the bins. But your life doesn’t have to be interrupted by your injury, the iWALK3.0 will enable you to get back to your day-to-day routine and enjoy hands-free, functional mobility while you’re non-weight bearing.

It frees the user from the limitations of conventional crutches.

If you need to be non-weight bearing for any length of time the iWALK3.0 is for you!
User ability requirement
As a rule of thumb, if you can walk up and down stairs without using a hand rail, then you possess the physical abilities to use the iWALK 3.0.
We can’t put an age limit on the iWALK 3.0 because physical condition and abilities vary considerably from individual to individual, especially in the elderly. iWALK 3.0 has been used successfully by people in their 70s and beyond, but we’ve also seen people in their early 60s who could not adapt. Put simply, to use the iWALK 3.0 you need average strength and balance. Personal assessment and sound judgement are the best tools to determine if an elderly person will succeed on the iWALK 3.0.
Leg length is the most important factor in determining if the iWALK 3.0 will fit, however, since most people don’t know their leg length, we use height as a starting point. In general, the iWALK 3.0 will fit you if you are between 4’10” to 6’6” tall, however, there are exceptions. If you are between 4’10” and 5’1”, there is a 95% chance that the it will fit. Similarly, if you are between 6’2” and 6’6” there is also a 95% chance it will fit. For detailed sizing requirements, see our sizing page.
