Using your height is only a starting point to determine if the iWALK crutch will fit you. Height alone is an imperfect system. Head, neck, torso, and legs are all components of your height, and body proportions vary significantly from person to person. So what really matters is your leg length. Since nobody knows their leg length, we provide height as an initial reference.
As a general rule of thumb, a human leg constitutes approximately 50% of overall height. This ratio can vary significantly from person to person. In addition, length ratios of lower leg (below the knee) and upper leg (knee to groin) can also vary significantly. Your upper and lower leg lengths are what matters most, so if you are toward the shorter or taller end of our guidelines, then you want to confirm your leg lengths are compatible with iWALK crutch capacities. Fortunately, we show you how - keep reading.
The iWALKCrutch accommodates an overall leg length (groin to floor) from 25.75" minimum to 38.0" maximum (65.5cm - 96.5cm).
Upper leg length limits are 12.0" - 18.0" (30.5cm - 46.0cm)
Lower leg limits are 13.75" - 20.0" (35.0cm - 51.0cm).
The chart below shows provides a graphic representation of the leg length limitations. Note - these leg lengths cover 95% of the adult population.
