DESCRIPTION

The SideStix Rotating/Articulating Foot Assembly contains a ball & socket joint, which emulates the shoulder and ankle joint. As the tip is free to articulate & rotate, it helps to prevent fatigue & injury that can occur during long-term crutch use.

This assembly provides more freedom than a traditional crutch tip and requires routine maintenance.

A tip maintenance kit is included with the purchase of the Rotating/Articulating feet.

    Amputee, been on (shitty) crutches for almost a decade. The rotating feet have been a pain in my ass that I gave up after some months. They were GREAT while they worked well. Moving around felt easier than I knew it could and my shoulders were instantly relieved, the rotating feet gave freedom and ease to crutch use beyond what I had imagined possible. But within weeks they started to squeak and stiffen. It got worse however attentively I followed the maintenance instructions and however often or seldom I did the maintenance, soon enough the material between the parts started getting scratches or wearing down and making sounds within hours after maintenance and I gave up. Now, I don't know if I unknowingly made some grave mistake or if I'm just inordinarily active but I don't think so. It was such a disappointment, both because I just wasn't prepared for the rotating feet's short life span but also because the gave me so much joy and hope when they worked well. It took me a while to accept that they wouldn't stay that way nor that it's economically viable for me to keep getting new ones. Worth their weight in gold if made more reliable, greatly hoping that day will come soon enough, my shoulders will long for rotating crutch feet for the rest of my life.

    Hello Artemis, Thank you for your feedback! We have also reached out via email to further discuss, however we wanted to reply here as well for the benefit of everyone. The amount of maintenance was always an issue with our Rotating Feet. For quite a few years we were developing and designing a version that would require less or no maintenance. In 2019 we had landed on a design that we were happy with and had received excellent feedback on. Our Revolution Tips provide the same function as our Rotating Feet, however they require virtually no maintenance. You will just need to rinse them out if you feel any grit inside. The Revolution Tips also use the Tornado Tips on the bottom, as that was another common request. It looks like you currently have a pair of the Revolution Tips, so we hope they are working well for you! - The SideStix Team
