Flexyfoot ferrule makes using crutch/stick safer & easier

5 out of 5 stars

I got my first Flexyfoot ferrules at Naidex when they were new, a few years ago. I loved them.

I had to get new ones when I changed to a stick from crutches- they come in two different sizes, and I needed the smaller ones. The old ones were still in perfect condition! The larger one is for tubular metal sticks and crutches, the smaller one is for a smaller stick. They are surprisingly standard!

You just remove the old ferrule (the bit that touches the ground) and put these on- you may need to adjust the stick/crutch as it makes it a bit higher. Inside of the ferrule it has a spring that allows it not only to have a shock-absorber action, but more importantly to allow the end of the stick to bend to meet the ground. It's a wide ferrule, so on uneven ground, gravel, sand, or up/down hill, it helps you maintain better balance. It wears more evenly (and its very durable) and it has channels so water doesnt get trapped underneath- you don't get worn off edges on this ferrule. It wears evenly so remains safe much longer.

If the bottom wears out, you can buy a replacement spring element at a lesser cost (it's easy to replace). You can also get a little cap with teeth for use on ice!

I love my flexyfoot!

Flexyfoot ferrule

Out and about

Flexyfoot

This makes walking with a stick, crutches or even a frame easier and safer.

These wear much better than a standard ferrule, and you can replace parts if they do wear.

I got mine at a large retail-chain Chemist: they aren't as cheap as plain ferrules, but they last a lot longer and provide better value because of how well they improve mobility.
