In September 2022, I ruptured my Achilles tendon while playing for Reading FC in the first game of the season. It was devastating, and I had no idea what the next few months on the sidelines would look like since I couldn't put any weight on my foot. That's when I discovered UK Knee Crutches and the amazing iWALK3.0 hands-free crutch.
Always rest your weight on your arms using the handgrips. Don’t lean on the top of the crutches under your arms.
