The Crutch Handle and Elbow Protectors from Deramed are a set of protectors that are used to prevent calluses and hard areas forming on the skin and the hands of people who walk using crutches. These protectors comprise of four tubes of gel, two of them to protect the palm of the hands. and the other two tubes with a central opening to protect the forearm area that rests on the crutch.

The diamond-shaped cross-section of the tube, combined with its tack-like (not sticky) feel, improves the hands grip, enhancing safety and preventing falls when the crutches are used. On the other hand, its elasticity makes it possible to adapt it to different shapes and sizes of crutch handles and forearm areas. The tubes are both washable and reusable.
