The revolutionary iWALK 2.0 is a hands-free alternative to traditional crutches that allows you greater freedom and self-sufficiency by leaving you full use of your arms and legs.
This hands-free crutch is appropriate for non-weight bearing injuries on the lower leg such as:
- Dislocation or surgery of lower leg, ankle or foot
- Achilles tendon injuries and surgeries
- Surgeries on the foot, such as bunion or foot ulcer correction

Learn how to iWalk:
You are a good candidate for a crutch alternative like the iWalk if:
- Prior to your injury you were not challenged by normal ambulatory activities such as walking, climbing stairs, etc.
- Your injury is to one leg (or foot, ankle or Achilles tendon) only.
- Your injury is to the lower leg, ankle, Achilles tendon or foot and requires you to be non-weight bearing during your rehabilitation
- You are between 4’10” (147CM) and 6’6” (198cm). The iWALK 2.0 is fully adjustable for a wide range of heights and leg sizes. If you fall outside of this range, contact us for an individual assessment first.
- You weigh 275 pounds (125 kg) or less and your maximum leg circumference is 27 inches (69 cm) or less (measurement taken as high as possible on the thigh).
- If you’re wearing a cast, make sure you can still bend your knee to 90 degrees.
A good quick test to see if the iWALK 2.0 might be suitable is to place the shin of the injured leg (with your leg bent 90 degrees) on a padded bench or chair. If you can carry weight in this manner for a few minutes and the shin and knee remain comfortable, this is a very good indication that iWALK 2.0 will work for you.
iWALK 2.0 may not be suited for:
- People that have poor health, diminished strength or who have any mobility challenges that are unrelated to the injury.
- Those that are significantly overweight are not ideal candidates, but that does not mean it won't work! Contact us for an individual assessment.
- Those that are unwilling to spend one to two hours to become proficient in using the iWALK 2.0. (We’ve seen many cases where users get used to iWALK 2.0 in minutes, but everyone is different).
- People with injuries to the knee or upper leg.
Every injury is unique and it is recommended that you consult with your physician before buying any rehabilitation device.
