Wife uses pipe insulation to make her husband's crutches more comfortable

Shared by tmmramalho on 2014-11-06 18:14

About the solution

mole1's husband needed to wear crutches for the first time, but he complained a lot of sore elbows from hitting the back of the crutches.
To help her husband, mole1 wrapped the crutches with some pipe insulation. Using pipe insulation over the aluminum tubing protect the elbows and provides very comfortable padding on the hand grip.

See how it's done here:

    A comment that responded to this idea for padding crutches (at the instructables link above) pointed out that my husband's arms were extended too far in reaching the handles. By shortening the distance from the crutch top to the handles, his elbow bent a tiny amount and no longer stuck out to get hit.

    Barely any years back, my father was working in "Magalir thittam" (Women Self-Help Group). Make my essay.. He was the head of managerial wing in our locale to deal with the SHGs . So he used to interface with parcel ladies as his activity requires the same. My mother knows this exceptionally well.
