The Synergy Gel Crutch Handle GelRaps attach over the existing foam or rubber crutch handle grips. These gel hand pads are easy to install and are designed to provide the ultimate in comfort and skin protection for crutch users.

Gel Crutch Handle Covers, also called GelRaps, are made of chloroprene rubber with a nylon surface that is similar to wet suit material. This stretchable material is latex free, soft and easy to clean. Inside is a polyurethane solid gel that will not leak out. This combination of materials is highly efficient for distributing pressure, protecting bony prominences and reducing abrasions, shear, and harmful pressure-related problems. Crutch users will find the Gel Crutch Handle Covers can aid in healing existing hand sores and/or abrasions.

  • Fit:Standard crutches.
  • Sold as: One pair of gel hand pads.

Alternatively, wipe the surface with any normal household soap or cleaning solution that is not irritating and to which you are not allergic.
  • Ditch the gel
    I use my crutches as my only way of getting around (no wheelchair). I am constantly dealing with dry cracking skin on the heel of my palms due to the rubber crutch pads. I bought these and put them on my crutches. Because of the gel (on top of the crutch pads) the had grips became quite large. After constant use (3 days) the gel migrated to the sides making the grips awkward and even wider and hard to hold on to. HOWEVER, the material has protected my skin and I no longer have the dry cracking skin on my palms!!!! I would buy these forever if they could also be made without the gel!!!! These may be most appropriate for short term crutch users.

    Crutch Handle Gel Grips
    I bought this item in spite of reading a review that stated the grips were too small to wrap around the handle of the crutches. Unfortunately, that was the case for me also. The grips are well made and the gel seems well suited to its purpose, but there is no way to stretch them enough to get the Velcro to meet. Very disappointing.

    Disappointing. They did not fit and we were not able to use them.
