Buying Crutches

Recommended Posts

Please can anybody tell me where I can get crutches without buying from the overpriced hospitals. 

May be there is a shop in the Sukhumvit/Ploenchit/Chidlom area?

Tks

On Rama IV near Sala Daeng BTS across from King Chulalonkorn Hosp there are a bunch of pharmacies. I used Chula Besaj. Just get off at Sala daeng, head towards the park and go left across Silom west on Rama IV

Following 'twisted ankle incident' I purchased some for my nephew a couple of years ago on Sukhumvit road...  I think they were about 1200 baht for a pair.... 

 

I can't remember exactly where on Sukhumvit - but they are definitely available at some 'medical supply' shops.

 

EDIT: 

 

Southeast pharmacy near Sukhumvit Soi 15 sells crutches...

On Rajawithi Road near Victory Monument, north side of street, there are several pharmacies that  sell medical devices as well.

 

You can also get them online from lazada, both the elbow and under arm types. If buying online make sure it is height adjustible.

Tks for all your info. Will send my husband out to get a pair. 

I got hit by a car last week. Luckily, I live to tell the tale.
