T18 Tornado rain Guard Forearm Crutch Tip - Made with a "wet-slip" resistant design, this tip helps to stop your crutches from slipping on wet surfaces. Our new rain tip bonded over the tread makes them over 300% more wet slip resistant than most rubber tips available. They have excellent traction on dry surfaces as well.
This gel filled tip is hand assembled in a 12 step process using the best quality natural rubber with only 10% clay mixed-in, as versus 40-60% clay mixture in other major brands. Encapsulated inside each tip is a thick pad of ABSORBALITE shock absorbing gel polymer. Up to three times your body weight is cast upon our shoulders with each step taken which not only tires you out, but destroys cartilage, bone, tendons and nerves. The Tornado tips protect you from these deleterious effects as well as providing superior traction.These tips bend slightly to better engage the ground even at steep angles. The 2 3/8" base diameter will usually outwear ordinary tip 3 to 5 times over. In the long run they are very cost effective and useful for the protection they give our hands, wrists, arms and shoulders.
