There are three types of crutches; Axilla crutches, Elbow crutches and Gutter crutches.

The design includes an axilla bar, a handpiece and double uprights joined distally by a single leg. They are adjustable in height, both the overall height and handgrip height can be adjusted (adjustable approximately 48 to 60 inches (12 to 153 cm))
Forearm crutches (or lofstrand, elbow or canadian crutches). Thier design includes a single upright, a forearm cuff and a hand grip. The height of the forearm crutches are indicated from handgrip to the floor (adjustable from 29 to 35 inches or 74 to 89 cm).
