Raw stats aside, why are these axillary crutches so well liked? Most consistently among those reviewing was the weight – especially if you are a post-op patient who is easily fatigued, these super lightweight DMI crutches are so easy to carry and use. For many, this is the difference between making it to the fridge and back to the couch versus stranding yourself on a closed trash can or some other awkward landmark (trust us, these stories are not that uncommon). Finally, the ability of these crutches to traverse seemingly dodgy terrain was consistently brought up in the many positive product reviews on Amazon. We’re not advocating off-roading with your immobilizer boot and crutches, of course. We’ll just start with the pilgrimage to the fridge and back.
