I never know what to get my grandma. She likes ice cream and game shows, but that doesn’t leave me with a whole lot of options. It’s weird to wrap a carton of ice cream and by the time it’s sat under the tree for a week, it probably won’t be in top condition.
But if you’re like me, fear not! JustWalkers.com now has a Gift Ideas section just in time for the holidays.
Using crutches incorrectly can be a painful experience. Either you fall on your face or, if you have them adjusted wrong, you injure everything from your hands and arms to your back and neck. Here are some of the most common crutch mistakes we recommend avoiding.
Got plain-jane crutches? Sick and tired of your drab, boring, underarm crutches? With just a little creativity, you can dress those crutches up into something fantastically unique and perfectly “you”. Here are five ideas to get you started.
Stay off that ankle! For eight weeks?! How are you going to survive without going crazy?

If you’re confined to a wheelchair, we don’t need to tell you the smallest tasks can be a big event in a wheelchair.

So you’re injured, or you’re recovering from surgery, or for whatever reason you’re supposed to stay off your ankle for a few weeks, and you’ve acquired a pair of crutches to use for that time. But they’re more of a hassle than you ever thought they’d be, aren’t they? Whether chafing under your arms or keeping both hands occupied whenever you stand up, there’s no denying that big, clunky crutches seem to cause more problems than they solve.

The burden of picking up your walker with every step is an unwanted and unnecessary one. Solutions to it abound, and most common of all is one with which everyone is familiar: tennis balls. Tennis balls and walkers have been associated for decades. The practice of repurposing of tennis balls into impromptu walker glides has spread worldwide. But did you know we sell tennis balls pre-cut, specifically for you and your active life?
