Axillary or Underarm Crutches
Axillary crutches are generally made of wood or aluminum, in such a manner that they can be easily adjusted according to the height of the person using them. These crutches are generally used by people who suffer from temporary disabilities or injuries.
Forearm crutches are the most common form of crutches used by individuals suffering from permanent disabilities. Forearm crutches are designed in a way that the person using them can slip his arm into the cuff and thus hold the grip tightly.
