“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.”
