Jeff Weber was a man with an idea, well, actually he was a man who hurt his foot. Weber was given crutches as part of his rehabilitation and thought he could do a better job designing them. Since Weber also makes awesome chairs, he had the knowledge and resources to make Mobilegs.
Articulated saddle design pivots and rotates in tandem with body movement and features 1 ¼” of built-in dampening. It maintains full contact and will not abrade the soft tissue. The pliable membrane sling provides suspended support, creating a rest for the underarm of unparalleled comfort.
The saddle grips naturally and is well-ventilated for continuous air circulation. The saddle is specifically left/right hand oriented.
Ergonomic Handgrips contour to the hand, maintain a natural wrist angle and evenly distribute load across the palm. Ergonomic Handgrips are specifically left/right handed.
The legs are offset to provide hip clearance and limit the potential for tripping.
Fully adjustable height and arm length to properly fit 98% of all adults 4’9” to 6’5” up to 300lbs.
Shock-dampened, Ultra Rocker Feet with over-molded, long life synthetic pads maintain full contact throughout the stride and are proven to increase ease of use, reduce shock and require less exertion.
There are also neat customization features called Mobiskin and Mobi eSigning where you can put any image on the crutches, or your Facebook friends can send messages that are then printed out onto stickers that go on the crutch.
The crutches should come out in the summer in two versions, the Universal for $59.99, and the Ultra for $89.99.
