Custom Crutches

Hi everyone we run a family business called Custom Crutches (www.customcrutches.co.uk) designing crutches specifically for children. The business idea came from having our son Brady who suffers from a rare spinal AVM and he can not mobilise without a walking aid but struggled to find one that he was happy to use without feeling different. Enter my husband who has been designing crutches specifically to his tastes for the last number of years at an extremely affordable price. If you think we could help you out please get in touch through the website.

    Hi as mentioned our son suffers from rare Spinal and which had left his lower body damaged and he is unable to walk unaided. He uses crutches for short distances and a wheelchair for longer journeys. Whilst he loveable the freedom his crutches gives him he was so upset with grey set supplied by Nhs so my husband decided to design a custom pair for him. So after years of designing for our son we decided to turn it into a family business. His motto is CustomCrutches designing happiness as his only aim is to provide kids with a set of crutches that they love without breaking their parents bank! We have seen the difference these custom crutches have made to his life and the happiness and confidence they have given him. If we can help anyone on here please shout or check out his amazing website

    kind regards, Louise
