Ahead - moving again / Ahead - a forearm crutch

Ahead - moving again
Ahead - moving again

`AheadŽ is a forearm crutch especially for middle-aged people, who find themselves in a phase of rehabilitation, e.g. after accidents, strokes and operations (e.g. considering the knee joint). The range of use is very versatile and has to be adjusted individually to each patient. The forearm gets stabilized by a closed lateral splint, inlay pads prevent the forearm and hand from painful dents, bringing out problems because of permanent stress. Crutches are sensed to be annoying and unhandsome very often, however `aheadŽ is a secure and attractive attendant for the patient.
