Ferrules are the end contact pieces that fit on the end of crutches and are designed with a specific specification in mind. They can be used on anything they fit which you want to be in contact with the floor, such as a seat. Some have flat bottoms while others have a bell shape. By nature of design, they have the following attributes.
Desirable Ferrule Attributes
Flexible, so the edge will bend according to the nature and shape of the surface to give maximum contact area. However, with increased surface area extra force is dissipated.
High Coefficient of Friction– friction is assured due to the selected material usually a PVC compound (Check for Latex free ferrules if you are allergic).
Easy to fit– pick the right size for a good interference fit.
