Crutch-Mate replacement arm pads are
manufactured using a high glycerine content gel. This patented gel
formula ensures that the arm pads and hand grips will retain their shape
and effectiveness. Crutch-Mate arm pads will not dry out, crack or split. In addition, the resilient gel
helps prevent friction and skin breakdown
Directions For Use:
Remove the old arm pad from the crutch core. When applying
the arm pad, simply stretch the Crutch-Mate over the core and press the
hook and loop closure in place. To assemble the hand grip, remove the
grip core from the crutch and slip off the original foam pad. Next, push
the core through the Crutch-Mate gel pad and reassemble to the crutch,
making sure that the sitching is on the underside of the grip.
Crutch-Mate arm pads may be
wiped down with a damp (not wet) cloth and mild soap or disinfectant.
Allow the arm pads and/or hand grips to air dry before use. DO NOT machine wash or allow the gel to get wet. The gel will absorb water and swell.
