I am a self-employed Mason. Upon realizing I would be non- weight bearing for up to 12 weeks, I knew I had to do something to keep me sane and complete my workload. My surgeon warned me about returning to work too soon and using my left leg and ankle. I found the iWALK2.0 and gave it a try. Boy, do I get the looks out on the job site!
In talking with other tradesmen, I have found that many of them have experienced the same situation and the iWALK2.0 can help so many of them continue to work.
I just bought an iWALK2.0 and I am thrilled! I truly believe this crutch can improve the lives of many people!
I am 32 years old and have been on crutches for over five years. In 2008 I tore my Achillis tendon while I was playing soccer. I had an operation that day. In the beginning everything went fine but then my lower leg got purple, cold and burned like fire. They sent me back to hospital and tried different things but nothing worked. After 1.5 years of suffering and many doctor visits I was diagnosed with Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) Type 2. The doctors said that there is almost no chance that it will get any better.
I discovered the iWALK 2.0 through the biggest German newspaper (Bild). A friend of my mother saw a picture on which Harrison Ford was wearing the iWALK2.0. It had been almost six years since I had been able to walk. I started using it immediately and it worked very well. Since then I’m using the iWALK 2.0 every day.
When I used normal crutches I had pain in my leg, both wrists and back, however, when I use the iWALK2.0 I have no pain or discomfort.
My quality of life increased a lot. I can take on more tasks of our housework. I even got married in May and we are thinking about having children. The iWALK 2.0 gives me hope that I will be able to bring the kids to bed or to hold them when they’re crying.
With the normal crutches I had no hope that I could do any of these things. So I’m very glad that you invented the iWALK 2.0 and made my normal life possible. It’s given me back so much quality in life – thank you!
