A Crutch in Time
If you think crutches are in any way a new device, think again buddy.
As far as historians can tell, man has made use of basic mobility devices like the crutch since they feasted on burnt rabbit carcass before retiring to their partially expired, ultra-ventilated habitats of manure and foliage.
Granted, the earliest "crutches" were most likely unstable feats of crude machinery. Less than scientific structures of inadequate materials that probably had the potential to cause as much harm as good; perhaps occasionally giving out mid-stride. However, in the early days, a useless limb was most likely a death sentence, so they only had to last for a short while anyway.
Not surprisingly, the earliest recorded actual proof of a crutch comes to us in the form of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics. Pharoahs' traveling via crutch adorn the walls of tombs and the interiors of pyramids according to those who are keeping score.
Interestingly enough, sources of available intelligence report that the crutch has not evolved a great deal over the years. However, when you reflect on the fact that neither has the human body, it *kind-of* makes sense.
Straight from the pharoah's tomb, we bring you the Carex Crutch Pads.
These days, the injured and otherwise marginally immobile can benefit from advanced technology and ingenuity in regards to soft, durable material that adds a level of comfort to your walking aid; and at an affordable price too.
