The iWALK crutch delivers on its promise of hands-free mobility, but don’t take our word for it – see what our customers have to say.
Just because you’re famous doesn’t mean you won’t get injured. But it does mean that you’re likely to receive the best medical care available. The pain and limitations of living with crutches is the same no matter who you are. That’s why more and more VIP’s are choosing the IWALK crutch for their recovery. Here’s a short list of our more famous customers.
Harrison Ford (Actor)
A malfunction of the door of the Millennium Falcon while filming Star Wars 7, The Force Awakens resulted in it crashing down on Ford’s leg, badly breaking it. He found out about the iWALK2.0 and had to have it. Because he was in London at the time, we fitted him over the phone. He was walking within the first five minutes, impressive as he was 72 at the time.
A lesser known fact was that Ford used the iWALK for a second time a few months later when he was forced to crash land his plane on a golf course. While still restricted to a hospital bed, Ford insisted that the iWALK2.0 be approved by his surgeons for his recovery.
Sloane Stephens (Tennis US Open Champion)
Sloane Stephens is a nationally ranked tennis player (youngest ever to rank in the top 100) who had to withdraw from the 2016 US Open due to a foot injury. This resulted in her taking nearly a year off to recover.
She entered the 2017 US Open the following year, and despite little time on the court to prepare, wound out defeating Venus Williams in the semi-finals and going on to win the US Open title. iWALK2.0 was used during her recovery, and we’re proud to have played a part in such a remarkable comeback. .
Kelly Slater (11X World Champion Surfer)
Kelly Slater is touted as the greatest professional surfer of all time, and his achievements back this up. Kelly suffered a severe Jones fracture while surfing in South Africa, and learned that he would need to be non-weight bearing for up to six months.
Not a person that likes to be idle, Slater found out about the iWALK2.0 and got on board. Said Slater, “Many thanks to the crew at iWALKFree for my new walking crutch. So easy to get around now”.
Tyron Woodley (UFC World Champion)
Tyron famously broke his foot during UFC 183 where he defeated Kelvin Gastelum even though he broke his foot during the bout.
To be ready for his next fight, Tryon needed to continue training immediately, so he got the iWALK2.0. As a result, he was able to continue his training and recovered three weeks faster than scheduled. The rest is history – in his next bout, he became the UFC World Champion.
Doctors not only recommend the iWALK crutch, they use it too! Then they tell us about it. See what they have to say:
Dr. Thomas Florack (MD, FAAOS, Orthopedic Care and Sports Medicine)
“No other device provides the combination of stability and mobility that is needed in the operating room setting.”
“I needed surgery to repair a lacerated tendon in my big toe. It required that I be non-weight bearing for 3 to 4 weeks. Standard crutches or a knee walker wouldn’t give me the mobility I needed to continue performing surgeries. Crutches simply limit mobility; a knee walker doesn’t allow for the combination of stability and mobility needed in an operating room.
“The iWALK2.0 is wonderful! I love this device!”
Dr. William Whiteside (MD, Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Surgeon)
“As an orthopedic surgeon, I knew crutches wouldn’t cut it so I ordered the iWALK.”
“I had microfracture of my talus for osteochondral defects and was non-weightbearing. As an orthopedic surgeon, I knew crutches wouldn’t cut it so I ordered the iWALK. The iWALK was a great tool to get me back to operating and the clinic.
“I was also able to spend time with my family, exercise and participate in day to day “life” activities. We even kept our scheduled trip to Orlando. Thank you iWALK”.
Dr. Ryan Logan (MD)
“This is a product that I will definitely be recommending to my patients!”
“I am an Internal Medicine Hospitalist physician and found myself very limited in my ability to see my patients after I suffered a calcaneus fracture.
“iWALK2.0 has literally been a lifesaver!”
“This is a tool that has been invaluable to me both professionally and in my personal life.”
