The PE Care 22mm Crutch Tips Ferrules can be used on both Forearm and Underarm crutches. Crutch tips can become worn away and feel uneven on their surface. It is comforting to know that they easily replaceable. Super easy to take off and replace; We find the best way is to wiggle the tip off which also releases the suction the rubber ferrule can have on the crutch end. The ferrule’s purpose is to give some suspension in the foot of the crutch whilst. The ferrule also stops the aluminium pole from tapping and damaging your floor. Plus, it prevents damage to the integrity of the crutches.
Crutch tips should be checked regularly for uneven wear. Uneven wear is a result of the user not placing the crutch to the ground as straight as possible. This is because the user generally is taking too large a step and as a result can reduce the life of the tip. Both tips should be replaced at the same time to give stability and keep the tips even. It does pay to keep an extra pair on hand.
The ferrules are made from a hard rubber compound.
