MySleeve is a silicone cover that is mounted onto a crutch handle to help eliminate sore hands, improve grip and prevent crutches from falling.

The comfortable material protects against blisters and provides grip, and the magnet allows the crutches to snap together when freestanding or for the user to pick up a dropped crutch with the other.

MySleeve was designed by Marie Van den Broeck, a young Belgian student, in response to her grandmother’s difficulties with crutches.
