Testimonials & Quotes

Doctor’s Opinion

Orthopedic Trauma Surgery
Chief of Trauma Division in NYU Langone Health
23+ Yrs Experience

“It gives them immediate feedback and teaches them had to weight bear properly and follow up the follows a program that I prescribed gives me feedback”

CSU Prof. & Assoc. Director Physical Therapy

“It gives everybody an opportunity to just have some more feedback”

Maastricht University Medical Center, the Netherlands. Does research in Surgery and Traumatology. Current project – ‘Permissive weight bearing’

“With the feedback patients gets from the Crutches, they will back to walk 8 weeks sooner”

Doctor of Physical Therapy, Regional Director
Moriarty Physical Therapy

“The biggest issue for me is that people aren’t listening, so it’s an issue of not enough pressure or too much pressure. With teenagers it’s a little bit less of «too much», it’s a matter of putting enough weight to it, so I can track it. I can see their percent, so when they come I can say: «Hey, you are not doing enough. You’ve make a thousand steps the first week and week 2 you kinda fall off. You have to stop your game up and get more compliance to put more pressure or ask them not to put too much pressure”

PT, DPT, CSCS, USAW, SFMA, TPI, Clinical Director Professional Care Physical Therapy

“The issue arise is that one the patient foot is out of the scale, really there is no other way to tell how much weight they are actually putting. There is no objective medical founded”

Frequently Asked Questions

Why a device on crutches and not in the shoe?

The idea of attaching Smart Tips to crutches was tested with real patients, and unlike insoles, Smart Crutch Tips are:
1. Always with the patient, even at night, when the patient is barefoot
2. More durable – 2 years of use
3. Available to consumers of any age and shoe size
4. More affordable to implement
5. Fit the reusable model

How is weight-bearing measured?

When walking on crutches, there is a moment during which the healthy leg is completed lifted off the ground and the entire load is distributed between the crutches and the injured leg.
We can determine how much load is placed on the injured limb by subtracting the amount of weight on the crutches from the patient’s body weight. For example: if a patient’s weight is 80 kg and during a step he transferred 60 kg to crutches, then 20kg of pressure was exerted on the injured limb.

How accurate is the data collected from the smart crutch device?

The error of weight sensors is less than 100 grams. We have calculated everything for safe use and a speedy recovery

What are the minimum and maximum weight-bearing thresholds?

The amount of initial weight bearing can be set from 0% NWB to 50% PWB. The upper threshold for graduated WBAT is 80%.

Smart Crutch Tips can be used with what pathologies and injuries?

The Smart Crutch Tips device can be used by patients recovering from nonsurgical and surgical treatments for hip, thigh, knee, shin, ankle, and foot injuries and pathologies

Are Smart Crutch Tips compatible with canes?

Yes! A patient can begin their gait rehabilitation on crutches and progress to a cane for quality gait progression
