The Boundless are the most comfortable forearm crutches you can buy. Whether you’re walking on city streets, working in the garden, or trekking up a mountain, the Boundless will take you there with comfort and style.
Boundless Shock Absorber
The shock absorbing system reduces joint compression, pain, and fatigue. Leaving you with more energy to do the things you love.

The Boundless is best for people who walk longer distances (over 1km), and have a swing-through gait or a vigorous walking style. These people will benefit the most from the damping shock absorber.

Right from the start we designed SideStix to be sleek, stylish, and silent. With a selection of lower tube wraps, you can blend in or stand out. The clamp system allows you to set the height exactly where you want it and lets you to swap out tubes and tips as you need, all while keeping them silent.

Made with aircraft-grade aluminum and carbon fiber, the Boundless is lightweight (approximately 800g each) and extremely strong. We’ve stress-tested them for millions of cycles and had them independently tested and approved by the University of Pittsburgh Human Engineering Research Laboratories (ISO 11334-1: 2007).
Carbon Fiber Lower Tube
Combining ergonomic angles with a completely custom-built approach means that every pair of SideStix fits perfectly. Once you submit your order, we analyze your measurements and then build each pair according to your dimensions and walking style. That means your pair of SideStix are just as unique as you.
Ergonomic Forearm Angles
A number of options allow you to build the pair of SideStix that is right for you. These options include different grip styles, lower tubes made from carbon fiber or aluminum and also three different types of cuffs; a front cuff, a side cuff, and a 3/4 cuff. The front cuff is a standard cuff opening that allows you to easily get in and out of them while still giving good side to side support. The side cuff gives you great support, allows you to easily get in and out of them, but has the added benefit that they will stay on your arm while you reach for something. The 3/4 cuff gives you the most freedom, but provides the least amount of side to side support.
Boundless Cuff Options
The Boundless are compatible with all our accessories, meaning you can feel confident walking on any terrain. Grip Caps can help on trails or icy conditions, Sand Shoes will take you to beaches or through mud, and Snowshoes will take through powder snow in the mountains.
Boundless Accessories
A limited lifetime warranty combined with superior build quality means that you will save money and reduce the chances of secondary over-use injuries, over a lifetime of owning your SideStix. No more buying replacement crutches once or twice a year! You can trust that SideStix will be there when you need them most.

    Excellent product. It’s great to be able to have a truly custom product made just for you and the process they go through to make sure everything is right before they build it shows they really care about their customer.

    Love my Boundless! These are my 2nd pair! I'm an AK amputee, who used to wear my Boundless in evenings and when off my prosthesis. I really prefer them 100% + percent to regular crutches "an upgrade" for certain! Since my allergic reaction to silicone liners, now 2 years ago, I'm on the Boundless 24/7, so full-time. They are lifesavers, allowing me to be on the move as I please as I wait to get back in my prosthesis. Quality stuff I can attest! Staff is hands-on and care, A+++ as this level of care and service is a gem as we all know. Thanks to Kerith, Kelly and SideStix team!

    Before SideStix I spent most of my days sitting. Walking just a few of blocks with my cane would cause me pain and swelling for the rest of the day. Vacations sucked because I would spend most of the time in a hotel room alone while my family tried to enjoy the attractions without me. Three years ago I purchased my first pair of SideStix and my life changed completely. Not only could I walk without pain or swelling but I'm doing things I haven't done since I was a kid. I'm able to hike pretty much anywhere. For the first time in 35 years I went to a beach (thanks to my SandShoe assembly). During Covid I have walked more with my SideStix than I have in my entire life combined. Every single day (weather permitting) my family and I walk 4 Kilometres or more. The best thing is that I can walk as much as I want with no more pain. One unexpected bonus from my SideStix is how they have transformed my body. I am in the best shape of my life just from using my SideStix. The shocks are so genius. I have never had any shoulder pain no matter how long I walk. Recently I decided to buy a second pair of SideStix to use indoors. I love my original aluminum SideStix but I adore my new Carbon Fibre pair. The difference in weight makes a big difference. They're AWESOME!!! I am absolutely thrilled with my SideStix crutches and so is my family. They use to worry about me so much but that stress is gone. Their only concern now is trying to keep up with me. They often fail. The SideStix team is amazing. They are so incredibly nice and patient and answered every single question I had (of which there were many). I want them to know that their incredible invention has changed the quality of my life forever. I will always be grateful to them.

    The price really pays itself back. After walking just 1000-2000 steps daily without any assistance and in constant pain, I now walk 6000-12000 steps dally with Sidestix and without pain. This has given me back my life and confidence. With Boundless, I experience no wrist or shoulder pain. It is also a good workout I think. I really love these. Just take my money.

    My Boundless crutches are the perfect complement to my new prosthetic leg! My PTs say they are saving my shoulders and wrists. As a recent hemipelvectomy patient I am just getting used to my new normal and SideStix Boundless are a key part of my adjustment. Although I've been introduced to alternatives, there is no way I trade these crutches for anything!

    Thank you everyone at SideStix for these😊 Changed my life, gave me back a lot more mobility. Chronic pain, lost use of a leg and bad shoulders, these are so comfy and I can walk without the pain other crutches have caused. I see people mention the cost of these... I used to change crutches every 12 to 16 months because aluminium tubes would warp and bend, not these, carbon fibre tubes flex and will last! So the cost is worth it!! In time they will save you money. I’m going to buy another pair as a spare. The fact I can buy each item individually is also saving money, rather than buy a new full pair which I used to do with another brand of crutches costing me quite a lot over the 16 years I’ve been using crutches. The shock absorber I’d recommend, they’re comfy and they work, my shoulders feel like new, no more pain at the end of a day Attachments are a great idea! I have them all and use them. SideStix also look good, I get stopped often and asked where I get them from. These are by far the best crutches I’ve ever used!

    I had legg- perthes disease as a child. It is a rare disease that affects the hip. Now as an adult, I have hip pain, which also affects the knee. I had to give up hiking due to discomfort and pain. Hiking and backpacking was a huge part of my life. I felt such a sense off loss when I was not able to hike anymore. I felt like I was being left behind and it was tough to pull myself out of my pity party. I happened to see a YouTube video of Sarah using her Sidestix to hike the West coast trail, and other epic hikes. I felt such a glimmer of hope and thought, if she can do it, then I could too! I ordered my Sidestix and haven't looked back. It took a few flat walks/hikes to build up my upper body strength, but now I can use them to hike steeper trails. I also have fibromyalgia so the sidestix help to take the pressure off my joints. I am now training for the Berg lake trail trail in Mount Robson. I'm so happy to be part of my backpacking gang again! My trail name is 'Crutch'. Sidestix=freedom!!

    This is my 2nd Boundless. I wanted to get a backup since I depend so much on my stix to walk short distances with my leg braces due to polio. I was so impressed the first time 9 years ago, that I didn’t think I’d could be remotely impressed again. I was wrong. I absolutely LOVE the new fingrips, definitely more ergonomic for me. And I didn’t realize the shock absorbers in my old stix were dead until I found how smooth the ride is with the new stix. I have not been maintaining my shock absorbers. Most of all, I am still impressed with the customer service from the SideStix team...they suggested to shave off some weight from my stix, knowing that every little bit counts for someone with post polio fatigue, all from their own initiative. BECOZ they listen to their customers and understand their customers’ personal challenges. In today’s world, I find that most people just do the very minimum....hardly anyone goes the extra mile. And they guided me to clean my shock absorbers for my old pair, one side is good but I’ve decided to take their offer of refurbishing them professionally. The lesson I’ve learned is that just becoz I didn’t break my stix (and I can break wheelchair and carbon fiber braces!), doesn’t mean I don’t need to give the shock absorbers some TLC. The other lesson I like to share is that as our polio legs get weaker with age, our other body parts take on more abuse to compensate. You MUST protect your hands, wrists, arms, shoulders and neck...those are all connected, and when they’s much more disabling than losing the use of your legs. Boundless gives you that extra mileage on your upper body!

    I had polio as a child and now am in my 70s. After a serious fall I realized I needed more support than my cane offered, or I would have to give up my life-long love of travel and boating. Fortunately, I discovered Sidestix. They are everything their website promises—beautifully engineered, matched perfectly to my body and as unobtrusive as a pair of crutches can be. The ordering and delivery process was flawless and everyone I dealt with at the company was eager to help and went out of their way to make sure my order was accurate and it was filled quickly. In fact, in my first phone conversation with Keith, he told me how to make my Sidestix float, in case one went overboard! Thanks to everyone for a great product.

    Excellent!! From the service to the product itself. I have walked more in the past few weeks than in the past year due to the comfort and stability sidestix provides. The quality is superb. Thank you so much!!

    I absolutely love my side stix. I am a new Right Below the Knee amputee and I have not got my prosthetic yet so I am using these everywhere. They are quiet and have great hand grips. Highly recommend these for others like me but also great for others that are fully mobile as hiking or snowshoeing stix.

    I first discoverd them through a customer at my work and it worn't for that, I wouldn't have known they ever existed. Walking with these sidestix are very comfortable! crutches I ever had, but I still have yet to get the shocks resistance going on them.
    January 28, 2021
    These things are BEAUTIFUL. I have used crutches off and on throughout my life and have had many sets. I’ve never seen anything like these. The weight is good, not too heavy and not too light, and they seem very solid. They are also really quiet, which is new for me. Should have bought them years ago.

    Best crutches I’ve ever received. Great for walking long distances. My hands don’t slide off the handle like with other pairs. They are great for active people that don’t let anything stand in their way from living life to the fullest. Special thanks to the Sidestix team! You guys are the best! I wish I could hug each person that took part in making these crutches for me. My body has cerebral palsy so I use crutches long term. I took these on a hike in the desert and didn’t have any pain in my arms or shoulders afterwards like I usually do. Thank you guys!

    I bought these as I've been having ongoing problems with my Bi-lateral partial knee replacement with no real solutions on how to resolve the issue so I had to try something. The crutches have allowed me to continue with at least basic hikes with my dogs and husband without limits on conditions. I use these as my hiking sticks now, which helps keep the pressure off my knee, especially the downhill. portions. We live in the mountains of BC, and we are rarely not hiking hills.

    I love these crutches! I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and find walking any distance causes pain in my feet, ankles, knees, hips and lower back. Using sidestix takes the pressure off my muscles and joints andI can walk much further. I had all but given up on the idea of trekking holidays but now I can see a way build up strength and stamina. A bonus is your arms get nice and toned at the same time!! My dog is now much happier that he gets two walks a day! I was also really impressed by the service and delivery to UK I was expecting the package to take ages to arrive but it was extremely quick and efficient. Thank you so much for this wonderful piece of equipment!!

    These very well-constructed forearm crutches with shock absorption have enabled me to get back to hiking with confidence on mountain trails. I'm very glad that I found these and urge anyone with lower-body mobility impairments to use them. I also appreciate the excellent customer-oriented service that SideStix provides and look forward to many years of use with them. While not inexpensive, the opportunities that they provide are priceless!

    When my Girlfriend who is a Doctor recommended that I acquire Side Stix, She said that I would be able to keep up to her on walks. Now, I keep asking her to pick up the pace. Side Stix has increased my mobility 10 fold. N.B. I had 2 knees and a hip replacement.

    Sidestix are the best brand of crutches that I've ever had! My training for amputee soccer has increased 10 fold. If you are a crutch user for sport, leisure or just everyday use. Sidestix are the way to go!

    Purchased them with revolution tips for a client who is used to the explorer model and she absolutely loves the boundless model.

    I am very experienced on crutches because of numerous knee surgeries throughout my life. I go about my daily activities as best as possible. The first time I used my SideStix to take my dogs in the woods for a 1 hour walk, I couldn't believe the difference. I was actually "walking" I couldn't love my Stix more I just had a knee replacement revision, I can't wait to go back to my Stix....
    June 18, 2020
    I bought these after a major knee surgery. They make using crutches as easy as possible. I will be loaning them out after I recover to friends and family that need crutches. I am sure they will last a lifetime.
    June 18, 2020
    Over the years I've had all manner of crutches and to a one they've never been quite the right fit, one side to long, not comfortable to grip, etc, etc. That was until I saw a guy in the village where I live with what looked like some super looking crutches. After stopping and questioning him I was straight on the site and within 24 hours had purchased a pair for myself. I can honestly say they are the best crutches I've ever used. The hand grip fits beautifully - even when I've wet hands. And the adjustable feet mean even on the steepest slopes I feel very comfortable I'm not going to slip. My only suggestion would be to make the company easy to find online. Sidestix isn't a name that I would search for when thinking of crutches. Cheers...Paul

    I deal with a series of lower body joint injuries and ongoing pain from a lifetime of activities. SideStix gave me back the ability to do substantial hiking again, with safety and confidence. I am so grateful. If you are on crutches for the duration, you owe it to yourself to check out the SideStix Boundless. All aspects of this company, from its products to its web site to its customer service, exist to improve the lives of mobility-challenged customers. Their quality, care, and concern show through everything they do. Thank you SideStix!

    These are the most robust, comfortable and light weight crutches I’ve had and they have allowed me to spend hours at a time on different surfaces in comfort, whilst also being the only pair I’ve had that can cope with the rigours and physicality that comes with playing Amputee football

    SideStix have given me my independence and confidence back! I have hEDS, hydrocephalus, and other of chronic health conditions that impact my mobility. Before I got my SideStix, I had several nasty falls, including one while using a cane. Although I was only 30, I had to concede that my balance, coordination, fatigue and pain necessitated something more than a walking stick. Because of my joint instability, I did extensive research to find a mobility aid that would give me the support I needed without further stressing and damaging my joints. I was so excited when I discovered SideStix Boundless forearm crutches. As promised, these beautifully designed forearm crutches are lightweight and sturdy with a shock absorbing system that reduces joint compression, pain, and fatigue. They allow me to do everything I want to do, and go everywhere I want to go, including hiking through Acadia National Park last year!

    Dear possible and new SideStix users, I have chronic pain in several joints due to osteoarthritis and discus prolapse and I also have cam impingement in both my hips. About 6 years ago I began to use crutches, and have therefore tried many different types. Now I've finally found the crutches that make my everyday life easier - SideStix Boundless. These are simply the most perfect crutches I've had. The features of SideStix Boundless are absolutely incredible. The rotating tips are so amazing…. My old crutches did not have rotating tips, which probably is the reason for more pain in my arms, neck and shoulder. The SideStix Boundless rotating tip feature are perfect especially if your arms are a bit crooked like mine. In addition, the FinGrips on SideStix Boundless are the coolest and most comfortable I have ever tried, and the design is also ergonomically perfect. I think the price is the only drawback, since the SideStix Boundless crutches are pretty expensive. But with my experience with crutches, I have no doubt that the money for the SideStix Boundless crutches is well spent Unfortunately, I walk very slowly which is why I need my crutches to be comfortable and not to heavy. SideStix Boundless meets all my requirements and even more than that. The rotating tips need to be emphasized further, as I think it is a feature a lot of people who use crutches would appreciate. Another thing I want to highlight is the ability to maintain SideStix Boundless - all parts can be repaired or replaced, which means that SideStix Boundless can last for many years. As mentioned before, I have tried many types of crutches and none can be compared to SideStix Boundless crutches. Recommendation: Yes SideStix Boundless = perfect Features: Rotating tips, Ergonomic FinGrips + incredibly comfortable to hold Rating: 6 out of 6 Price: In the expensive end, but instead of trying many different crutches, it might be worth spending money on SideStix Boundless - for me it was a perfect investment. I wish you all a good day, and I hope you will find crutches that suits you as well as my SideStix Boundless suit me. A big thanks to Kerith for developing these amazing crutches. Kind regards Carsten M Denmark

    I can say this honestly that these are the best firearm crutch canes in the planet. There isn’t another pair that matches the comfort sturdiness and down right cool looking ( camouflage wraps al the way). I’ve used many different pairs of forearm crutch canes with little success over the years. While doing a search online for forearm crutch canes I found Sidesticks. I was even able to pick them up at their headquarters in BC. Nothing like the personal touch. I’ve recommended them to many people over the last few years and have got amazing feedback. If your looking for the BEST FOREARM CRUTCH CANES to hit the market look no further, you’ve found them.

    Lightweight, strong and quiet. Every detail is well thought out and my wrists are not sore anymore from using crutches. Well worth the money, and the customer service was excellent. Thank you for the excellent product and service.

    I searched online for 18 mths to find the absolute best pair of crutches I could get my hands on, and these were it. Great design & manufacture, very stable (really really important to me in a crutch), the shock absorber/elastomer is a godsend for the joints in my hands & arms having put these through a lot in 50 yrs of walking with crutches. Using Boundless will no doubt prolong the length of time I'm able to continue walking with crutches with the reduced stress on my joints they provide.

    When I was diagnosed with transverse myelitis 4 years ago, I knew I would never hike again. Several more autoimmune and neurological diagnoses later, I received my sidestix. I’m hiking regularly with so much joy. I’m even planning a short backpacking trip alone at the end of the summer. They make movement easy and fun! I tell other people with disabilities about them constantly. Sidestix gave me back my love of the outdoors. It doesn’t get better than that!!

    I have chronic shoulder problems from weakness and crutch use, and these are the best crutches for my shoulders. The shock absorber makes it a lot less painful to bear weight on the crutches, and they fit me perfectly. As far as I can tell, these are the best crutches in the world right now. The only thing that would make them more perfect is a weight reduction. I want the most lightweight crutches to reduce pain when picking up and advancing the crutches and the most shock absorbing ones when putting them down.

    SideStix have been the best investment in my health and fitness! They are incredibly well-designed, comfortable, versatile, finely constructed, and stylish. Due to severe tendon damage in both legs and nerve damage in one leg, my mobility and activities had become quite impaired. I tried using other crutches initially, but they were fragile, noisy, and just not practical for my needs. I did a lot of research about crutches (I even looked into having a custom bike frame builder construct a pair) before I discovered SideStix. What an innovation! They not only allow me to explore more of my surroundings but, most importantly, make everyday challenges much more manageable. In addition to producing and providing excellent products, SideStix, the company, provides outstanding customer service. I have received friendly and knowledgeable care throughout every interaction with them. They are very people-oriented, which is extremely important to me. I have had my SideStix now for two years. I have zero complaints and zero regrets about my purchase!

    I have both legs and feet but the deformity on my right foot has become more disabling as I age. I have orthotic shoes and I have tried leg braces. However, adding Sidestix to my life has given me the freedom of mobility and the absence of pain. Last year I traveled around the world and could only have done so because of Sidestix. They are sturdy, light weight and comfortable. I recommend them for people who have upper body strength but lack mobility in their lower extremity. Purchasing Boundless Sidestix was the best choice I have made in a long time.

    I contracted polio at age 2. I've worn a leg brace since and used ancillary crutches when not wearing the brace and when navigating challenging terrain. About 15 years ago I started using a cane when walking to assist with balance. Due to a recent diagnosis of lumbar stenosis my Physical Therapists recommend using forearm crutches. I was having some difficulty practicing with the standard aluminum model. The Sidestix is making the transition much easier. I appreciate the lighter weight, the ergonomic design features, the shock absorption, and the sturdiness of my Sidestix crutches. They are helping this old dog learn new tricks!

    I have been an amputee and crutch user for over 25 years and have tried every brand out there. I was suffering my chronic pain my shoulders and wrists. I was introduced to Sidestix by my former oncologist, who remains a close friend of the family. He was traveling in England and ran in to a woman who was using them. After some research, I decided it was worth trying. I couldn't be happier with them! They have helped tremendously with my elbows, shoulders and wrists. I was having so much pain with my previous brand and this was one of the reasons why I was so excited to try SideStix. They have certainly been great for me. I enjoy hiking with my husband and daughters and love that I can easily add my hiking tips. They are very versatile and I am so pleased with them. Thank you so much Kerith and Sarah for your continued support.

    As a nine year hindquarter amputee I tried lots of different crutches and none came close to the comfort, engineering and style of Sidestix. I've taken them all over the world and I cannot recommend them too highly. Well worth the money.... and Sidestix are great to deal with!
