    Dear all,

    I have not posted for a long time because I had a lot of work and family problems but I would like to say first of all, I am sorry to see the utch forum go. I think the comunity is very helpful and people have a beautiful sense of togetherness. I really hope that the boards stay open.
    I would like to ask your help please, I use a crutch, normal one, but I wonder if I could buy a folding one. I need one with the arm thing but that I could use if I went cycling or travelling. I am in the Uk, Staffordshire. I would be very grateful if someone had any online shop I could contact and your views on folding crutches, are they practical? I only need one really.
    Thanks so much for your help smiley - smiley

    Have a good night,

    hello hurtallover ,

    Thanks so much for your help. I am coming back to thank you first of all and to post some feedback on my purchase. I purchased a folding crutch from chick aid (second site), and the service was second to none. Fast, excellent customer service. However, I want to tell everyone who may be interested in this particular kind of crutch, you must buy an arm band or else your arm will not stay in place, since it is only a half cuff. Apart from that, brilliant service. I recommend this site to everyone.

    Have a good night all,
