What is Disabled VAT Relief?

VAT relief means disabled and chronically ill people are exempt from paying VAT on items purchased. This means they pay 0% VAT and therefore save money.

Who is eligible for VAT relief?

To be eligible for VAT relief the government state you have to fit the following criteria:

Charities: Simply provide your charity number.

A person is ‘chronically sick or disabled’ if he/she is a person:

  • With a physical or mental impairment which has a long-term and substantial adverse effect upon his/her ability to carry out everyday activities; with a condition which the medical profession treats as a chronic sickness, such as diabetes; or
  • Who is terminally ill.

Important Note: It does NOT include a frail elderly person who is otherwise able-bodied or any person who is only temporarily disabled or incapacitated, such as with a broken limb.

The black 22mm Flexyfoot Shock Absorbing Walking Stick Ferrule is the ideal solution for those with mobility impairments. Its unique design provides 50% more grip and traction compared to a traditional rubber ferrule.

 The bellows absorb shock and reduce pain in the upper body, making every step more comfortable. 

Its flexibility ensures full contact with the floor for improved safety, even on rough terrain.

 Compatible with most walking sticks and canes, this ferrule is a must-have for anyone seeking improved grip and comfort.

Fabulous piece of kit, I have an arthritic hip & now the second hip is playing up {waiting 10years for nhs} so these flexyfeet are just what I needed to absorb most of the shock whilst walking. Would recommend to anyone. Brilliant


I now have these fixed to all my walking sticks / crutches I use. The ferrules that come as standard used to make any support a lottery until I used these. Best bit is replacement ‘feet’ can be bought, although I’m not sure if I’d ever need the ‘ice’ versions! I've seen other reviewers who have had issues with the change in height exacerbating pain, however I've not experienced this, but do keep this in mind if you're using them for the first time.

I have been using these for a few years now and they certainly help prevent my crutches slipping and reduce pain I get in my wrists, elbows and shoulders as I use crutches all the time. They also help when negotiating slopes as the concertina allows you to use them at an angle. An excellent piece of kit just a shame they are not available on the NHS.


I use crutches most of the time and had worn through the feet that came with them. As I already have a flexy foot stick I decided to get flexy feet for my crutches. They are excellent. I live in a town with cobbles and now I don’t have to worry about over balancing. They also help with shock through my arms and shoulders.


I used the flexyfoot on my NHS elbow crutches - they were really hard to put on (I had to get my partner to do it) but a snug fit is required! Even though it still is a bit slippery on a wet floor, it has been a lot more stable for me to go outside in the patio and in the garden with the flexyfoot... especially since I am only toe touching at the moment. They are pricey but worth the extra stability!

I was impressed with flexyfoot easier on my hands and shoulders the only down side was the price compared to rubber ends

As I'm a permanent user of crutches I find these ferrules ideal as the flexibly top allows for maximum contact with the ground.


I’ve fixed theses on my crutches as I can’t get off them since my knee gave way in January and I had a bad fall. I have rheumatoid arthritis and need a stick normally, but so nervous of falling again. After wrestling to get the originals off my daughter and I fitted them, only used indoors at the moment, but seem robust and ideal, I will update when I have to go outside. They need a bit of roughing up from outside as a bit slippy on my wooden floors, which is normal, like new shoes on the flooring!


This is the most fantastic advance in ferrules since I started being reliant on arm crutches many years ago. For the first time I can place the foot of my crutch more or less anywhere reasonably close and be sure that I can then put my full weight on it and it won't move. I can then move forward, or sideways and the crutch will swivel at an angle but stay put in place absolutely safely. I have never had such complete confidence in a mobility device before. I am 83 years old and weigh in at a hefty 220lbs so those flexifeet are doing a sterling job. My unreservered recommendations to Flexifoot.


This item is a must have for crutch users. I've tried most rubber stoppers and most are rubbish. I've been on crutches for 9 years with a full leg amputated so I know what's best out there for me and this item is best I've had. They are softer landing so they are good for the shoulders my aches have gone using these. They are good on wet supermarket floors to when it's raining I don't have to think 5 moves a head encase floors wet.
