  • Straps- Straps make it difficult to put on and take off, especially when getting in and out of automobiles or using the bathroom stall.
  • Easy to climb stairs?- Ease of use when climbing stairs. Roll-a-bout could roll backwards when pushing up to the next step.
  • Use as a footrest?- Can it be used as a footrest when sitting down?
  • Easy to use the bathroom?- The I-walk-free must be removed to go #2. The Roll-a-bout may get "wet" when using urinal.
  • Easy to use when driving?- The oneCrutch can just be placed on the passenger seat while driving. The i-walk-free must be unstrapped before getting in and strapped back on after getting out.
  • Easy to take on Airlines?- The oneCrutch easily stows in the overhead compartment. The I-walk-free would have to be un-strapped before stowing and then put back on if you need to move about. The Roll-a-bout is too bulky to use while flying.
  • Can use to assist when standing up?- The oneCrutch can be used to hoist oneself up when sitting.

  • The nice thing about the oneCrutch knee crutch attachment is that you don't have to learn to use it right away. The day you recieve the oneCrutch you can attach it (on the outside) and use your regular crutches just like you always have. When you feel comfortable, you can turn your crutch around so that the knee support attachment is on the inside. This way you can take baby steps with it until you feel comfortable. Once you feel easy about placing your weight on the oneCrutch you can begin to think about getting rid of the crutch on your non-injured side. After awhile you might find yourself not needing the other crutch and now you are much more independent can use your other hand for things other than holding a crutch.
