Photographer’s Sanity Saver

Sam Moore is a photographer who recently said “Quite possibly the best invention ever for someone that has had foot surgery… nearly 5 weeks in and this iwalker has kept me sane!!!”. He uploaded a nice picture of himself using it a circuit with an air boot on his foot.

Barbara says “A fantastic product”

Just had this comment left on the Facebook page by Barbara Illingworth:

“I’ve recently had a fairly major op on my foot/ankle and am not allowed to weight bear for 3 months. I’m in a cast and looked forward to 3 months on crutches. One week after my operation and I’m mobile….this is a fantastic product and I’d like to say a big thank you. Love, love love it.”

Really pleased that it’s working so well for her.

“He even started doing the washing up”

If your Other Half has a lower leg, ankle or foot injury, Amanda recommends the iWALKFree Hands-Free Crutch as a good way to get them to help with chores:
“The iWALKFree Crutch was an absolute godsend when I chanced upon it by Googling how to manage with crutches. My husband had to have an operation on his foot two days before Christmas and we were totally unprepared for the impact his complete dependence would cause us at such a busy time. The staff at Bear Products were amazing and dispatched the crutch incredibly quickly so I was able to take it in to hospital for the physio to help him fit and use – she was most impressed and hopefully we will have helped others by passing on info to her. To be fair he didn’t use it for a couple of days as there were enough people around at Christmas to allow him to do very little but as soon as he was able he fitted it himself and it gave him independence around the house where he could get up the stairs on his legs and carry things in the kitchen – he even started doing the washing up which I was most grateful for after a few days of doing absolutely everything! Luckily after two weeks he had a boot fitted and was allowed to weight bear so the crutch was no longer needed. All in all it was an excellent product, my only reservation would be that if it had been I and not my husband who had to deal with it I suspect it may have been a little heavy but he managed fine.”

Mike and Tatjana

Two nice comments recently. Mike left this on our Facebook page:

“I am a below knee amputee, and due to a condition in the remaining stump, I am unable to use a prosthetic limb at all, so I haven’t walked for 13 years. I have recently tried out one of these and within 15 minutes i was walking all round my house. My legs are very weak so I need to strengthen them up, but this device is going to change my life tenfold, I can’t believe I didn’t spot these before now amazing product”

We should have some to sell back in stock soon and I hope he’ll be back for one.

Tatjana mailed me about her rental and said

“I also wanted to say thank you for offering this product for rental. It really made my life a lot easier during my 6 weeks of non-weight bearing after my foot operation. Whilst I was never able to solely use the iWALKFree, using it combined with 1 regular crutch was still a lot easier than walking with 2 regular crutches and I would absolutely recommend the iWALKFree and your service to anybody in the same position.
Thank you!”

Interesting how some people find it easier to gain confidence on the iWALKFree than others, isn’t it? I’m glad they both found the device so useful.
