THE BEGINNING OF CRUTCH CAPS:
The concept for Crutch Caps began when my wife was informed that due to her rheumatoid arthritis, she would need to have joint replacement surgery. She was excited at the prospect of a pain-free existence, but the task of being on crutches for several weeks was daunting. Thinking of the pain and awkwardness associated with crutches was not an exciting prospect.
Luckily, my mother-in-law is extremely creative and came up with the idea of sewing together unique and fun fabric, then attaching it to the top of the crutches. It was a wonderful idea and it made the time on crutches both comfortable and fun. We couldn't believe the compliments and how many people wanted to own their own set.
So, here we are. The process has been perfected and we are ready to help others in their time of need both with pain and taking a tough experience and making it a bit more fun. We believe our products are superior to others on the market in padding, comfort and style and hope you enjoy them too.
As a side note, my wife and many people throughout the global world, continue to struggle with the debilitating illness of rheumatoid arthritis. Our family strongly believes in the positive efforts and results developed through the Arthritis Foundation. This foundation is a non-profit and there are chapter locations throughout the United States. Because of our belief, we have included a link to their site and an option where you can donate, through Crutch Caps, to the Arthritis Foundation. Please help us in finding a cure for rheumatoid arthritis and the other various forms of arthritis plaguing our global society.
Thank you for choosing our site and our products.
