In-Motion Articulating Tips fit all of our In-Motion Spring Assist Products as well as our LifeCrutches.
Our specially designed articulating crutch tips are made of a high-quality (Latex Free) composite, contributing to the articulation, even wear on surface contact area, and the total lifespan of the articulating tip. In addition, these specially designed tips help to give better stability because of the increased contact surface area throughout the gait pattern, which can also help to reduce the shear forces. The potential increased surface contact will help reduce the uneven wear characteristic of the conventional A-frame crutch designs, which have remained mainly the same for decades.
*Notice- these tips are not compatible with rigid posts. Rigid posts require the TP8 tips only.
*Tips are sold as a pair.
The inside diameter is - 11/16"
(.7 inches or 18 millimeters)
I have used In-Motion forearm crutches periodically for the past few years. I am on my second pair of crutches. My previous ones from 2019 held up relatively strong through my post-op activities. I have been using my new pair of crutches pretty regularly for the past 13 weeks and am already on my 4th set of tips. I am not sure if the product changed between 2019 and 2021, but I can't figure out why I am blowing through tips. I love these crutches so much that I haven't wanted to change brands, but I'm back online ordering more spare sets of tips. I never leave home without a spare set since it becomes quite dangerous quickly if I blow through the bottoms - especially on smooth floor surfaces. Yikes!
I have used the In-Motion crutches for years and have been satisfied with everything - until about a year ago the crutch tips started failing at an abysmal rate. Tips that used to last YEARS are now lasting weeks, if I'm lucky. As someone with one leg, who relies solely on these crutches for my mobility, this change in durability is both a financial hardship and a potentially large medical liability if the tip fails at the wrong time. I don't want to have to look for a different crutch, but I'm about at the point that I can't continue using these tips with the quality downgrade for mine and my wallet's sake.
I lost my right leg 7 years ago. Have been using your fantastic crutches exclusively. About a year ago seems you changed rubber in tips. Tips now only last maybe 2 weeks before breaking. You should go back to old style tips.
I'm a returning patient/customer n very satisfied for so many years. It has helped me a whole lot.
Nothing like metal on tile to slide out from Underneath you when the tips get warn through. Keep at least one set on hand so you don’t have to wait for them to come in. Especially if you use your crutches daily.
