We're not 100% sure when the crutch was first designed, but we are sure that it's been overdue for an overhaul for quite some time. Mobilegs ($60) are a replacement for the traditional crutch, offering soft underarm saddles, a curved leg, adjustability from 4' 9" to 6' 4", the ability to handle humans up to 300 lbs., soft handgrips with natural wrist angle, and a high-traction rocker foot. Of course, it's best to try and stay off crutches as much as possible, but as we all know, shit happens.
As if you didn't already have enough feedback from your scale following your 6-month bacon excursion, along comes the Tanita BC-350 Ironman Body Composition Monitor ($270). Yes, that's right: for under three Benjamins you can be gawking at the percentage of body fat, body water, muscle mass, bone mass, and other clinical-sounding measurements, all made by this scale.
