"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"
The complications associated with diseases such as cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy and others have an impact on the mobility of the patients, making it difficult to walk without support. The standard medical crutches are sometimes uncomfortable to use. Hence, crutch pads are used to absorb the pressure and shock, to prevent bruising or skin rashes, chafing and to provide relief from underarm pain.
Crutch pads include pads for the forearm, axillary support, handgrip and leg for comfortable mobility with crutches. Crutch pads are usually anti-microbial, resistant to body oils and perspiration to keep the skin dry and comfortable. According to Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Foundation, 17 million people worldwide live with cerebral palsy.
