I think it would depend on the user and their tools. Someone with a pair of underarm crutches who has no experience using them - and potentially poor upper body strength - will have different results to an experienced user with a pair of high tech carbon fibre forearm crutches.

I question the calorie burn for walking on crutches. I'm using many of the same muscles required for climbing a steep incline (scrambling). If I am weightlifting, most of the calorie burn occurs while resting afterwards. Could that be the case with walking on crutches, since you are continuously lifting your own body weight?
