I cannot praise the iWALK highly enough. It has literally given me my freedom back. I can move around easily , go up and down stairs safely, and sit down with a minimum of fuss. I am far steadier on one foot with this device than I ever was when I was using crutches which hurt my hands and shoulders and also caused me to put weight on the broken foot if I wobbled ( which I did frequently). I have heard every parrot and pirate joke going and a stranger even shouted 'aar' to me when I was out and about yesterday !! Obviously more expensive than standard crutches but the freedom, mobility and stability is worth every penny.
