Antxon: polio and crutches
The following story made us to realize how the crutches haven’t changed during history. Antxon is a user that has used many different types of crutches and walking supports without finding anything that hasn’t caused him physical nuisances.
Antxon is 61 years old and lives in San Sebastián. He suffered from a poliomyelitis and since then needs walking supports so that he’s able to walk.
He has tested KMINA crutches for 1 week and he tells us his first feelings.
As he speaks in Spanish, we translate you his words:
“The support is in the elbow, so the hand is completely free and doesn’t suffer pain.”
“The elbow conducts the activity, so you can easily take speed.”
“You can easily get used to them.”
