    Hi Smiley
    Welcome to the forums.....just post in any of the fourms although as Sticky says.....Living with arthritis and Chit Chat is where we usually are.
    I've seen the gutter crutches but never used them
    We are a mixture here of wheelchair, rollators, crutches, mobility scooters.....you name it someone her uses it although I'm not sure anyone else uses gutter crutches...I use ordinary ones permanently
    Hope you enjoy the forums

    Hello, it's lovely to meet you and well done on finding us! I am in my eighteenth year of my malarkey and use crutches and a rollator: I recently bought a wheelchair for holiday use so I can get out and do more (courtesy of my chauffeur, a.k.a. Mr DD). I hope you find the forum useful for support and encouragement, we are a caring bunch who understand the troubles and tribulations we face on a daily basis. DD
