Underarm or forearm crutches? (what devotees likes)

Hello everybody!
I'm still a beginner here on the forum, I hope you'll take it well. : oops:
With the theme of devotism, I have known for a long time and in general I treat it quite well. For a year now I am an amputated model, and many of you know me. Since I learned about the devotees, this subject has become very interesting to me, I'm an inquisitive person and today I want to ask you devoti what crutches do you like? I mean the image of a girl with a leg amputation.
It's clear that users of crutches for themselves choose what crutches they are comfortable with. Personally, I can not say unequivocally that I prefer some particular type of crutches. For me, it's important that the crutches are light, comfortable and beautiful (I'm still a girl, and this is an accessory for me), and so that they do not bang while walking. Now I have to walk constantly on crutches and prefer canadians, which I already have many different colors. Axillary crutches are also available and I use them at home, so my hands are free for household chores, as well as walking well in winter, are more stable, less risk of falling on a slippery road. I also often see girls on wooden crutches on the Internet and on the street, but they seem to me heavy and old-fashioned, with them I would feel like an old grandmother. I think these crutches are bought mostly in Russia or in poor Asian countries.

And now your opinion, dear devotees. What kind of crutches do you like more girls? As far as I understand, the aesthetically correct and finished image of the amputate girl is very important for you, and crutches are no less important to you than our clothes or shoes. Do not pass by, vote, I'm interested in a common opinion. And who here is more brave - do not hesitate and write your comments, it will be pleasant to me to esteem and communicate on this theme. :Bravo:

Hi Lia -- all types are okay to me. What matters much more is how well and skilfully they are used. I also like seeing one-legged women with a single axilla crutch.

Wooden underarm are my favorite aesthetically. However any type being used by an amputee is desirable. The sound made by aluminum firearm or underarm crutches will catch my attention very quickly as wooden ones seems to be quieter

Lia, you are lovely! I prefer axillary crutches myself but a woman who is accomplished on any crutches is a thrill to me.

Amputee Lia Milano,

Hi Lia,

You pose an interesting question, especially coming from an amputee. Personally I prefer forearm crutches. Visually I find them more elegant. From your comments I presume you are using crutches full time. Not sure what level your amputation is, but do you also wear a prosthesis? And btw what caused you to become an amputee? Look forward to your reply.

As far as style, I'd side with under arm as it's more common in the states and what I've always been more used to seeing.

I can't say I have a hard preference in materials but I'll lean toward aluminum. They look a bit more casual and much more contemporary.

My wife switches between wood and aluminum underarm. Functionally they both have advantages. Aluminum tend to be lighter, but wood are much more quiet. Almost all of her aluminum crutches start to make noise after some use, but wood are always nearly silent.

She's also got one vintage pair we acquired at an antique store. They're polished aluminum with wing nut height adjusters, so there's nearly no noise from them; much like wooden crutches. They're probably from the 1960s or 70s. She's only used them around the house, but remarked on how incredibly light they are. They're a bit flashy for daily use but make an excellent compliment to a Halloween costumer period correct outfit.

Only forearm crutches allow a really elegant gait for onelegged women and safe running in uneven terrain. Metalmade axilla crutches are like Electricity poles, wooden made like parts of furniture.

Hey Lia,
Great question! I appreciate the thought especially women amputees must put into choosing crutches!
I enjoy the sight of forearm crutches and feel the lesser the weight often seems to accompany a more delicate and graceful movement...
But in saying that, I don't care what someone uses as it isn't me that has to swing between them!
