I mentioned in an earlier post that I would tell you more about my amazing crutches. At times the arthritis from this disease is so bad in my hips and back that it’s very painful to walk and or stand.

This was causing me a great deal of stress because with MCTD comes arthritis in all my joints, thus not allowing me to use regular crutches. My wrists, elbows and shoulders can’t take any weight. I wondered what I was going to do. I couldn’t even use a walker (Not that I wanted to anyway) since that also puts pressure on my joints.

Then I found SmartCrutches. I can’t even tell you how much of a gift they’ve been. The way they’re designed, they take all the pressure off the joints I mentioned above but still give me support for walking and standing. Not only that, they come in all sorts of cool colours, so they’re not your average blah crutches. They have become an accessory and I love them.

Now I can be out for longer when I need to be and not worry so much about how much pain I’ll be in later. If any of you find that you need a walking aid, I can’t speak highly enough about SmartCrutches.  Oh and the arm rests are adjustable so they can be moved up or down for maximum comfort.  Did I mention that I LOVE these?!

*Just a note. I’m not being paid to share this with you. I just love these and it’s given me some of my life back, and taken the worry of not being able to walk away. No one wants to think of a wheelchair and now I don’t have to. 

I’m so grateful.

Below are a couple of pictures of my cool new accessory.
