Best Crutch Pads in 2020



Crutcheze Premium USA Made Crutch Pad and Hand Grip Covers | Comfortable Underarm Padding Washable Breathable Moisture Wicking Anti-Bacterial Orthopedic Products Accessories (Black) Review:


the armpit pads are fine & pretty comfy. when i had to take them off to wash them i did notice a huge difference w/just how uncomfortable the stock pads were. i was very happy to get the crutcheze pit pads back on.

howevere; the palm pads are entirely too thick for me to be able to use them without them cramping my hands up. i used them for maybe 5-10 min before giving up & removing them. they're just sitting now. :(

so, i'm 1/2 happy w/the product. they were quite spendy & i am bummed that i'm only using 1/2 of the product. it would be nice if there was an option to buy the pit pads individually from the palm pads.

upon seeing my review of only being 1/2 satisfied, the staff at crutcheze reached out to me to ensure i was fully satisfied w/my purchase. they sent me a personalization fit kit which included several additional pads of various thicknesses. i ended up using the thinnest set. i still had to trim them to fit into the palm pad pouches, but it wasn't very difficult & they fit ok. now they're much comfier & i'm able to use everything i purchased! GREAT customer service, too!

Vive Crutch Pads - Padding for Walking Arm Crutches - Universal Underarm Padded Forearm Handle Pillow Covers for Hand Grips - Soft Foam Armpit Bariatric Accessories for Adults, Kids (1 Black Pair) Review:


These were so EASY to put on!! Extremely so just slip them on over the top part, and the handles you just velcro them on.
My hands though ARE SMALL so I end up putting my thumb near the edge of the pink part for the handle since they are rather bulky, but!! That's also GREAT for many so it's not at all a minus instead it's a huge plus for most.
The top part, are quite cushy so I had move the crutches from 5'4" down to 5'2" but ahhh comfort!! SO COMFY!!! Highly recommend these.
Plus they are CUTE!!
As you can see from the picture I've paired them with SureTip Purple Crutch Tips & Cane Tip in PURPLE. Now these say they will be good for 1" crutches, and mine are 1" and I am really not sure how they'll hold up. They are shorter than the original ones that were on there, and they seem to not be as secure, but they are SO CUTE and I couldn't find any others on Amazon that are pretty. LOL I KNOW!! I KNOW that should NOT be a chief concern, but it IS for me. Hmmm I am not young at all, but I hate boring stuff.

Vive Crutch Pads - Padding for Walking Arm Crutches - Universal Underarm Padded Forearm Handle Pillow Covers for Hand Grips - Soft Foam Armpit Bariatric Accessories for Adults, Kids (1 Blue Pair) Review:


My daughter broke her foot. I’ve been around the block enough to know that this item was going to be #1 on our “To Buy List”, and I ordered it as soon as we got home from the hospital. She didn’t even know this existed, let alone that it was necessary. Mama knows best! And Mama also knows that the darn things had to be PINK!

PROS:
- Everything! Seriously, you have to have these.
- Saves wear and tear on underarms. Your underarms will get sore, but these will definitely help.
- Helps hands.

CONS:
- Nothing ever looks as perfect as in the professional photos.
- When someone tells you it’s quick and easy, it never ever is! I struggled to put these in place and they still don’t look perfectly aligned.

HOT TIP:
- You’ll definitely need to use crutches at least sometimes, but seriously consider a knee scooter.

BOTTOM LINE: This is one purchase you will absolutely not regret.

PLEASE NOTE: To see the other items I recommend for a broken foot, please look for my BROKEN FOOT IDEA LIST, which you can access by clicking on DisneyDenizen at the top of this review; it’s on my profile page. To see my full reviews of the other items we purchased, go to that item’s page and search for “DisneyDenizen” in the “Have a question? Search for answers” box. I will make sure those words appear in each of my Broken Foot reviews.



Vive Sheepskin Crutch Pads - Padding for Walking Arm Crutches - Universal Underarm Padded Forearm Handle Pillow Covers for Hand Grips - Soft Foam Armpit Bariatric Accessories for Adults, Kids (1 Pair) Review:


These are VERY COMFORTABLE! Im on crutches a lot due various orthopedic issues. The sheepskin pads make you want to walk with your crutches(not kidding). There is no irritation or slippery feeling like other crutch padding. I had ordered another set of padding at the same time for about $8 more just to compare. There is not a little but a huge difference in comfort. I was surprised because the sheepskin pads were $8 dollars less. Another big plus is there washable. I washed and dryed them and still a perfect fit. Im ordering another set today to have on standby for my crutch use after my surgery this summer. GREAT PRODUCT!



Classic Replacement Crutch Pads, Comfortable Gray Rubber Underarm Cushions, Hand Grips, and Feet Caps, Fits Standard Aluminum Crutches (6-Piece Set) Review:


I needed 1 hand rest for 1 crutch and 1 underarm pad for the other crutch, so I'll have the matching pieces when it's time to replace the other respective pieces. I have several pairs of crutches all over the house and these could replace any of those parts. Very easy to put on, so it was a great price for the usual quality you'd get at any medical supply store, except this price was great!
