Ataxia Balance Crutches are designed to provide users with balance, stability and increased safety, by helping prevent balance-related falls while also enhancing their mobility.
The novel, patented 4-leg 668 Geometry™ of the Ataxia Balance Crutch, addresses balance challenges over a wide range of crutch angles, by offering continual stability and support in two critical planes of balance necessary for walking. These are the anterior and posterior (forward and backward) plane and importantly, the lateral (side-to-side) plane.
668 Geometry is the critical measurement ratio of Ataxia Balance Crutch’s 4-leg design. Anterior and posterior legs are 6” in length, while the lateral leg is 8” in length. This ratio provides constant support anteriorly and posteriorly, and optimal stability through the lateral leg that remains in contact with the ground while engaged.
Each of the 4 legs are manufactured from 6061 aluminum and engineered to offer a non-jolting response to vertical weight load through flexible gel-tips that provide grip and load-bearing compression to ensure maximum support and stability while walking.
Ataxia Balance Crutches are adjustable to conform to unique patient anatomy. These adjustments include:
Forearm position adjustment
Hand grip angle to forearm adjustment
Vertical height adjustment
Currently, the crutches are available in adult sizes. Youth sizes are forthcoming.
If the flexible gel tips show signs of wear, replacements can be ordered and easily replaced
Ataxia Balance Crutches are proudly manufactured in America from high strength, 6061 aluminum to provide a lifetime of use and reliability.
