Designer Yong Rok Kim listened to the woes of people using crutches and aims to ease their healing process. His Crutch Chair is exactly what it sounds like – crutches that turn into a chair to rest your weary legs.
I’ve personally never had to use crutches (knock on wood), but I would imagine shifting all your weight to one leg can get tiresome. Knowing myself, I’d probably demand an electric wheelchair complete with tilt sensors, accelerometers, and touchscreens. However these crutches – tho they don’t form a true seat, do seem to provide a nice temporary break from hobbling.
