Rubber feet fits crutches from 19mm to 25mm in diameter
Tornado ferrules with “shock absorbing” effect for crutches from indesmed
Thomas Fetterman specializes in crutches and ferules for crutches.
Over several years, Thomas Fetterman has developed ferrules for crutches to get a ferrule that is:
- Light (weighs just 63 grams each)
- About 50% lighter than many traditional ferrules / Rubber feet for crutches
- The foot is extremely stable on smooth surfaces
- Shock absorbent and thereby reduces shoulder injuries that come from years of use of crutches
- Latex Free (Reduces allergic reactions)
Tornado “Air Cruth Tip” from Thomas Fetterman is recommended for those users who want a light ferrule and who are not “over active” in the use of the crutches.
According to the developer, these ferrules are very durable compared to standard ferrules. Up to 4 times as long shelf life. Remember to turn your ferrules 1/4 lap each week so that it lasts longer and the foot wears out than during the life of the foot.
In the ferrules there is embedded a small iron disc that ensures that the crutch is stable and the metal pipe does not go through the rubber.
Anyone who uses crutches knows the fear of falling on a slippery floor. Thomas Fetterman has tested countless sticks and crutch ferrules in natural rubber for slip safety on slippery floors. No one has yet been able to beat his own Tornado Air tip ferrules.
We are proud that Thomas has chosen us to be in charge of the distribution of the ferrules in Europe.
Buying thomas fetterman ferrules in Europe saves customs fees and freight from America.
The ferrules fit regular elbow sticks
The crutch ferrules fit ordinary crutches on the European market.
If your crutches are smaller in diameter, you may want to roll a little insulation tape at the end of the stick to fit, as these ferrules are made only in a “universal” size.
The ferrules don’t get hard like other ferrules in natural rubber.
