Remember when you were a kid, and you longed for a pair of crutches?
At PA Healthcare, we’re inclined to put the yearning for casts, crutches, and all manner of medical novelties near the top of the list of things that separate adults from children.
As an adult, even if you’ve never tried to drink a cup of coffee or do your grocery shopping while walking on crutches, you can probably imagine the near impossibility of both. Crutches are a big pain in the…um…armpit.
And now here you are, with a non-weight bearing foot injury. Ugh! A pair of crutches is the last thing you want to be burdened with.
Traveling with luggage? Forget it. You’ll have to wait around for the next available skycap. Dancing at your cousin’s wedding? Not so much. Walking your pooch through the park? Nope. Not even that.
Say goodbye to crutches and hello to iWalk 2.0!
Have you ever noticed that the most innovative technological advances are often the ones created from the simplest concepts?
The iWalk 2.0 hands-free crutch is exactly that. This remarkable device features a lateral foot component that works under the same principles as an actual foot, and it allows the upper part of your leg to do exactly as it’s always done.
If you think about, traditional crutches require you to completely change the way your body works, causing pain in parts of your body that have little to do with walking (armpits, for one).
But iWalk 2.0 has been engineered to assist your mobility while keeping your other body parts working as they always do, thus eliminating the pain, discomfort, and awkwardness of walking with crutches.
iWalk 2.0 is a multiple award-winning device that was created for comfort, safety, and ease-of-use. Medical practitioners all over the world have expressed wonder and admiration for the engineering excellence of iWalk 2.0. It provides balance, stability, simplicity, and has a very the quick learning curve, causing doctors to ask, “Why hasn’t anyone thought of this before?”
Yes, it’s that remarkable!
Plus, the iWalk 2.0 is hands-free, so you can walk your dog, drink your coffee, or dance at your cousin’s wedding – pain-free. Your armpits will thank you.
Who can use the iWalk 2.0 hands-free crutch?
The iWalk 2.0 is a great crutch-alternative for just about anyone. It’s important that you have average strength and balance. Before your injury, if you could walk unassisted or go up or down stairs without requiring a handrail for support, then you may be a good candidate for iWalk 2.0.
The iWalk 2.0 is helpful for recovery from the following injuries:
- Achilles tendon rupture
- Sprained ankle
- Broken ankle

Your injury must be below the knee, on one leg only, and you must have full functionality in your other leg. Additionally, you must weigh 275 pounds or less and stand between 4’10” and 6’6” with a maximum thigh circumference of 28” or less.
It’s very important that you follow instructions for fitting and use before you use the iWalk 2.0. You must also be willing to spend 5-20 minutes to allow your body to learn and adapt to the device.
