No-one would actually choose to use crutches, but if you need to, how about some stylish, smart crutches rather than the standard and let's face it, boring, grey NHS issue?
Sold as a single crutch or a pair, these smart yet functional Flexyfoot elbow crutches are made in Germany. Although not technically coloured, they have a textured black finish which just adds to the sophistication!
The crutches are fitted with Flexyfoot ferrules as standard and are therefore designed to ease the pain and discomfort often associated with crutch use. They have a closed elbow cuff and a soft grip handle.

Individuals purchasing disabled mobility products for their own personal use are usually exempt from paying VAT. We will require you to sign a simple declaration form that confirms you are eligible to receive goods at a VAT exempt price. Our prices are therefore often shown exclusive of any VAT.
VAT law provides certain reliefs for people who are "chronically sick or disabled." "Chronic" is taken to mean lasting a long time and therefore excludes injuries of a temporary nature. However, a long term condition does not, in itself, determine whether someone is chronically sick or disabled. For example, not all those suffering from long term back problems will be chronically sick or disabled; some will and some will not, depending on the severity of the problem. "Disabled" is also taken to refer to a long term condition and includes mental disabilities. Relief under this provision is not restricted to those who are registered as disabled persons. You will find further details and information Notice 701/7 VAT reliefs for disabled people.
No. There is no blanket exemption from VAT for disabled persons.
When VAT was introduced into the UK, it was agreed that disabled persons should not have to incur the tax when buying items designed solely for their use or when having equipment adapted so they would be able to use it. This basic principle still stands, and as a consequence zero-rating does not extend to all goods and services supplied to disabled persons. Moreover, the UK has agreed not to extend its existing zero-rates.
The following goods may qualify for relief:
Certain conditions must be adhered to in order for these supplies to qualify for zero-rating. These conditions include the following: the design or adaptation of the item; the supply being made to a disabled person for their domestic or personal use; and the receipt of an eligibility declaration form. You will find specific details and further information Notice 701/7 VAT reliefs for disabled people and Notice 701/59 Motor vehicles for disabled people.
The following services may qualify for relief:
Again, certain conditions must be adhered to in order for these services to qualify for relief. You will find specific details and further information Notice 701/7 VAT reliefs for disabled people and Notice 701/59 Motor vehicles for disabled people.
The leasing or hiring of certain items--for example, wheelchairs and motor vehicles leased under the Motability scheme--may be zero-rated subject to the conditions outlined in Notice 701/7 VAT reliefs for disabled people.
In all cases, the customer must be eligible for the VAT relief and the supplier needs an eligibility declaration to this effect. You will find examples of eligibility declarations at the rear of Notice 701/7 VAT reliefs for disabled people.
Certain goods and services supplied to a charity may qualify for VAT relief if they are to be made available to disabled persons. You will find specific details and further information in Notice 701/7 VAT relief for disabled people. If you are in any doubt as to whether you are eligible to receive goods or services zero-rated for VAT, you should consult VAT Notice 701/7 VAT reliefs for disabled people or contact the National Advice Service on 0845 010 9000 before signing the declaration.
