Chronically Badass Canadian Kerri is a blogger who approached smartCRUTCH to use and review our crutches after enduring a long term injury to her knee due to her biomechanics (Read the ‘About’ page on her website here).
Kerri has now trialled them and has written an extensive blog review which includes a dozen photos as well as two videos of her unboxing and setting them up as well as using them and reviewing.
I Received smart crutch a few days after ordering. I have began walking for short periods of time to transition from cane to crutch. My first impression is that I no longer find myself leaning on cane but instead walk with an upright stance. I am in sixth year after stroke that left left side without ability to move.

"The axial crutches and platform crutch additions provided by my insurance provider caused significant shoulder pain and callouses on my hands. After a few weeks of using conventional crutches, I had more pain in my shoulder hurt from the crutches than leg pain from the injury I needed crutches for in the first place. Dealing with the insurance company and their subcontractor for DME was painful, the representatives I spoke to had no vested interest in my satisfaction, and it showed throughout Read More
