Describe Yourself:
Long Term User.

I am a lifetime user of forearm crutches. I used to love Guardians until they replaced the metal cuff tube with plastic. The first pair I got with this quailty downgrade broke within a few months causing me to fall. I missed hitting my head on the fireplace by only a few inches. To use plastic in this stress point is dangerous. I would rather pay a few dollars more and be safe. If you use them be aware of this danger. I wrote the manufacturer about my concern but they never replied.

Don't trust the technical specifications Verified Purchaser

Pros:
There are none.
Cons:
Uncomfortable.
Best Uses:
Everyday.
Describe Yourself:
User for many years.

Inferior design - cheap imitation of the orginal crutch. Cuff diameter too large, no taper, opening too wide. No bushings under lock nuts. No longer made in the USA - just another questional item made in CHINA. Bigger profit for Sunrise at the user's expense.

Medical Professional. Mom RN.

We used another brand because the company we normally buy from in town switched brands. The "other" manufacturer's pair lasted three months as opposed to 2-3 years for our last pair of Guardians! When I had to buy a new pair, I just went online and looked for a company selling the specific brand. I am pleased with the product [...]
