Unfortunately, I have had to use crutches several times throughout the years, and I don’t care how many times I’ve used them they are awkward, uncomfortable, and honestly quite painful at times.
So, recently I was told that I would have to use crutches for several weeks after an upcoming surgery, and I knew that I had to find a way to make my crutch life a little easier, so I decided to try some really cool accessories and here’s what I got.
Crutch Critter Pads
I knew when I saw these that I had to have them, not only because there really cute, but my armpits would thank me. I chose “Ajax” the horsey, and he’s super soft, nicely padded, easy to install. These critters come in a variety of other animals, and even baseballs for all you sports fans out there. Check them out at Amazon for only $25 below:
Crutch Bag by Vive
The one thing that really stinks about being on crutches, is it’s almost impossible to carry your stuff around. Especially, if you need to have someone take you to the store, where do you put your cell phone, wallet, house keys, and coupons? Well, here’s the perfect solution that’s worked like a charm for me, the Vive crutch bag, for $15 @Amazon.
This little guy held my phone, wallet, coupons, keys, and glasses on a recent to trip to Kroger! My mom dropped me off at front, and all my little necessities went right along with me to the electronic riding cart. (I made my mom a nervous wreck driving that thing cart around the store)! Loved every minute of it! 🙂
Crutch Hand Pads
And finally, these super plush crutch hand pads have made a huge difference in my comfort when swinging myself around. They come in black and purple, with an extra set of pads, and easy to install with its super strong velcro enclosure. These guys are available at Amazon for $15, and to me worth every penny.
I hope that I’ve shared some ways to make crutch life a little easier, because I know from personal experience that it isn’t an easy thing to go through.
