Here we go again, I think I've covered everything you've asked already.

I had previously bought a pair of these crutches and was completely happy. However, the most recent pair I bought has a pronounced engineering flaw. The grips do not fasten securely to the crutch main support. In other words, they wobble while in use. To me, this is a safety issue or maybe I just got a bad pair of crutches from the distributor. Anyway, I intend on calling the manufacturer to discuss the issue.

I have had the dubious pleasure of using crutches, solely or together with a wheelchair for most of the last 18 months. As i am staying active, I purchased these a month ago to use with my new 21 speed, recumbent trike, so I would have the mobility of folding crutches when I got somewhere. I have found however the design is far superior to my regular crutches, to the point that I use these exclusively. These crutches also are allowing the sores on my hand, made by the other crutches, to heal. I simply feel more comfortable on these than I ever did on my old ones.

I have mixed feelings about the Millenial Crutches. The ergonomic design is great and it causes very little discomfort under your arms. The problem is that the hand grips are very slippery...don't even think about using hand lotion anytime prior to using them! They also are supposed to help propel you which makes these crutches feel like pogo sticks compared to traditional crutches. As a result, I got scared and did not use them much at all. Instead I purchased a knee walker which I highly recommend (can use your hands and keep your balance). Note: I had bunion surgery and could not bear weight on the foot for 6 weeks. Therefore, any type of crutch would have made my life fairly miserable. I'll keep the Millenials and try them again...I think.

I'd been using regular crutches for a couple of weeks and the pain in my hands and shoulders was horrid. (I wrecked my knee skiing.) I had hoped these ergonomically correct crutches with their "shock absorbers" would be the miracle I was looking for...it just shifted the pain to another pressure point in my palm. Plus, I couldn't get them adjusted to the right height, even with the help of the physical therapist -- there weren't enough adjustment options. And the "shock absorber" on one crutch was sticky and didn't perform properly; we greased the heck out of it, to no avail. Overall the crutches were also heavier than the standard crutches, making them more tiring to swing around after a while. Be aware, too, that there is a left crutch and a right crutch because of the grip, which makes you have to think which side was which each time you picked up the crutches to move somewhere...annnoying. Speaking of the grip, it was definitely designed for someone with a larger hand than mine, but I can't say for sure if that added to the overall discomfort. I really tried hard to make them work for a couple of weeks, then I went back to the old-style crutches. I tried contacting the manufacturer to get some help. I did get one call back (that went to my voice mail) and didn't get any call backs after I attempted a couple more times to get in touch. I was, however, very satisfied with Overstock's price and immediate delivery.
