Plain aluminum crutches straight from the ER are about as boring as they come, not to mention being really uncomfortable. Your hands hurt from the hard rubber grips, and the rubber under your arms rubs and pinches. To top it all off, you have no way to carry anything!
Crutch covers from The Classy Crutch are just what you need to make life on crutches more bearable. Soft fleece covers protect your hands and arms from rubbing, and are lined with a layer of high density foam to provide padding without excess bulk. The hand pads snap securely around the grips on your crutches to minimize any slipping, while the underarm pads are secured with a colorful button. The 5" x 7" carry pouch snaps securely to the side of one of your crutches to carry all the little things you need on a regular basis, including a special pocket to stash your cell phone in. A flap over the top is held securely closed by a strap across the fromt of the pouch to keep everything in should your crutches fall over when you rest them somewhere.
All my Classy Crutch cover sets now feature a Classy Crutch mini carabiner that hooks through a loop on the front of the carry pouch to securely hold your keys.
Your crutch covers are machine washable on gentle cycle with the foam padding removed, and can be dried on low heat. The padding for the hands and underarms slips in and out easily just for this reason.
I started making crutch covers for my daughters when they were on crutches for extended periods of time due to sports injuries. After a stint of wrapping the hand grips and underarm pads in old towels and duct tape, we decided there had to be a better way! The design was further refined this year when I found myself on crutches for an extended period of time due to a stress fracture in my hip. Ten and a half weeks on crutches, with 3 more weeks to go is a really good way to find out what works and what does not when it comes to crutch covers!
This listing is for the 5 piece crutch cover and pouch set only. The cool black metallic crutches that my husband painted for me, and the set of car keys are only for illustration purposes.
