This patient suffered a calcaneus or heel bone fracture. He was unable to bear weight on the foot for 8 weeks. This is significantly limiting as use of crutches or a walker make it nearly impossible to mobilize in a home or office setting. Use of these aides also occupies the hands – so preparing meals or accomplishing tasks becomes arduous. The I-Walk-Walk free crutch offers an alternative. Post-injury and post-operative foot and ankle patients can obtain this crutch, covered by most insurances and within 1 – 2 sessions of physical therapy, can learn to successfully manage their independence. For those contemplating a surgical procedure and are wary of the postoperative restrictions, this device is a significant game-changer.
