crutches

i am a Ugandan, i want to buy for my disabled sister crutches and take them home to her, is it possible someone who is not disabled to buy them (crutches) for someone who is disabled especially when the former is out of the country?

Check with your local pharmacy. Many pharmacies have them. Shop around for the best price.

Just one thing I would like to add. Once an orthopedic doctor told me that the wooden ones are more comfortable than the ones made from aluminium. I do not know why. You may wish to check this up with some orthopedic before you buy one.

Yes this is possible, no document is required to purchase crutches. Most large-scaled pharmacies in the country have crutches on retail. I suggest heading to Wellcare, Kulud, or Care N Cure.

Yes, you can. They are available at most pharmacies in and around Doha. You can find them in the pharmacy located in Villaggio opposite Careffour. Several major outlets of Al Aziziya pharmacy also stock them.

Please keep in mind that crutches come in various sizes. While they are adjustable, it is important to know the size especially when you are taking them to another country.
