Crutch-Mate arm and hand pads are made from a unique high glycerine gel designed to reduce pressure points and improve comfort. Crutch-Mate pads will not disintegrate, will help prevent friction, reduce the chance of skin breakdown and will provide long-lasting comfort. Crutch-Mate and Crutch-Mate II replacement arm pad and hand grips are manufactured using a high glycerine content gel which is 3/8" thick. This patented gel formula ensures that the arm pads and handgrips will retain their shape and effectiveness. Crutch-Mate Crutch-Mate II arm pads and handgrips will not dry out, crack or split. In addition, this resilient gel helps prevent friction and skin breakdown.
Remove the old arm pad or hand grip from the crutch core. When applying the arm pad, simply stretch the Crutch-Mate over the core and press the hook and loop closure in place. To assemble the hand grip, remove the grip core from the crutch and slip off the original foam pad. Next, push the core through the Crutch-Mate gel pad and re-assemble to the crutch, making sure that the stitching is on the underside of the grip.
Crutch-Mate & Crutch-Mate II arm pads and/or hand grips may be wiped down with a damp (not wet) cloth and mild soap or disinfectant. Allow the arm pads and or hand grips to air dry before use. Please Note: DO NOT machine wash or allow the gel to get wet. The gel will absorb water and swell.
