3 stars, Great concept, needs more padding
By Pfoggy in Pflugerville from Pflugerville, TX on 2013-05-20
Pros: Cloth Covering
Cons: Thin Padding On Top
Best Uses: Replacement pads
Purchased with matching grips. The grips are good, but these pads seem to have more padding on the sides than on the top. They are not exactly uncomfortable, but they are a bit narrower than conventional and seem to be a bit skimpy on the top, while having more padding than actually required on the sides. More top padding would definitely increase the comfort level. I definitely like the gel approach.
4 stars, really helped
By Jack from wisconsin on 2013-05-06
Much more comfortable than the standard rubber pads and better than the multiple layers of cloth wrapped around the pad. Kind of pricey but ultimately worthwhile. Have walked about 20 blocks each of last five days and armpits aren't sore. Still, wish the gel was just a bit thicker. Have recommended to others and will still do so
5 stars, Product is very good

Before my arm pits felt like bruises. With this extra gel padding, I hardly feel them at all. Tremendous difference!!

This product was a life saver! I am glad I bought it. I was getting chaffing under my arms from my crutches. This product TOTALLY got rid of all of the under arm discomfort.
Questions on Elasto-Gel Underarm Crutch Pad, 1 Pair
- Will these fit the larger, heavy duty crutches such as those made by Medline? The underarm support is about 2 - 3 inches longer than the ones on standard crutches. Will these stretch to fit over?
- Unfortunately, since these are manufactured by Invacare not Medline we cannot guarantee they will fit. They are designed to stretch over existing pads so they will be able to stretch.
