From Carole Morrison via email:
I would like to nominate flexyfoot as it has made such a difference. After using crutches long term with traditional ferrules I developed a rotator cuff tear of my left shoulder. The hospital said it was through long term use of crutches. As I was no longer able to use a crutch on left side I had to go back to using my wheelchair until I came across this company. It has given me my freedom back allowing me to use both crutches again as there is no longer a strain on the shoulders. I used to find that my crutches slipped away from me when getting out of the car if it was wet, now because the whole of the base is on the floor this no longer happens. Even though I cannot get these through the hospital I would not go back to using traditional ferrules.
