Person who has spina bifida.
Not durable. After just a few days of use, they started squeaking like the old pair did after years of use.

Good metal and sturdy.
If the person is short about 5'3', consider a set of pediatric ones. The adults are supposed to fit an adult 5'0 and taller but are nearly too tall for someone 5'3".

72 year old female. Polio victim 67 years ago. Used guardian forearms for over 65 years.
Overall the best available. Sturdiness incomparable to other brands
Cuffs appear to have been stretched too much

The fact that it is strong, not flimsy like most of the other forearm crutches.
The plastic, it makes it hard to keep a good grip my hands.

Have used forearm crutches almost all of my life. Guardain has been an excellent product for my needs.
Quality workmanship. It used to be that the rivets or handle would slip out after some use. In the last 15 years, I have trusted guardian with their forearm crutches and have been able to get almost 3 years use.
I am light weight, so I don't think someone heavier than 130 would get 3 years life out of these crutches. However, I am very pleased with them.

32years old,amputee left leg.
more durable then most other crutches i have tried. this is my second pair of this model of crutches.
Plastic parts could be metal or stronger. rubber tips ware to fast. needs to stand the test of time especially if you are on a budget.

52yr old male w/osteoarthritis in knees and hip. Also with preferal neurapathy in feet causing balance problems.
Very well made. Strong materials. I like that they hold on to my arm while I reach for a door knob, leaving my hands free.
They are the heaviest crutches I've ever owned.
