Crutches Forearm Covers?

I’ve been put on crutches for pelvic girdle pain in pregnancy.

I’m finding them useful, but uncomfortable to use.

Firstly, the ‘c-shape’ forearm cuff grips feel a little tight and aren’t easy to get over my coat, etc.
- can I do anything to stretch them out?
AND
- can I buy covers to offer padding?

I have found some padded grips for the hand parts already.

Thanks in advance!

are the forearm bits plastic or metal?

They’re plastic.

Those wouldn’t fit the crutches, I’m afraid.

Mine look like this:

you might try warming the cuffs with a hot hairdryer and seeing if they will open up a bit? Alternatively go back to where you got them from and tell them they are a bit tight....they do (or did) come in different sizes....don't tell them about the hairdryer thing though!
