• Arthritic handles on crutches, often referred to as ergonomic handles, provide several benefits for users with arthritis or other conditions that affect hand and wrist strength and comfort. Here are the advantages of ergonomic handle crutches:

    Improved Grip Comfort: 
    Ergonomic handles are designed to conform to the natural shape of the user's hand, reducing the strain on the fingers, hand joints, and wrists.

    Better Weight Distribution: 
    These handles allow for more even distribution of the user’s weight over the palm, helping to alleviate pressure points and reduce the risk of nerve compression.

    Reduced Wrist Strain: 
    The shape of the handles can help maintain the wrist in a more neutral position, minimizing the wrist flexion that often occurs with standard crutch handles and can lead to strain and pain over time.

    Decreased Joint Stress: 
    For individuals with arthritis, the reduced stress on the joints can make mobility less painful and more manageable.

    Enhanced Stability: 
    Ergonomic handles can enhance the user’s stability by providing a larger surface area for the hand, improving control over the crutches.

    Increased Endurance: 
    With greater comfort and less pain, users may find they can use their crutches for longer periods, leading to increased mobility and independence.

    Non-slip Grip: 
    Many ergonomic handles are made with non-slip materials, ensuring a secure hold even if the user has compromised hand strength.

    Reduced Fatigue: 
    Because of the more natural hand alignment and improved support, users often experience less fatigue in their hands and arms when using ergonomic handle crutches.

    Promotes Active Lifestyle: 
    The increased comfort and support provided by arthritic handles can enable individuals to maintain a more active lifestyle without exacerbating their condition.

    It's important for users to get crutches with arthritic handles professionally fitted to ensure they are the correct height and the handle angle suits their needs. Proper fit and instruction on use can further enhance the benefits of ergonomic handle crutches.
