Crutchin for Life

For those who’ve been in a position to use crutches since they were a wee little person, a single size or even a traditional “adjustable size” crutch isn’t as awesome as it could be. Consider the following, if you will: “Lifelong Crutches” by Beomsik, Eunsil, Soonho, Bomi, and Bohyuk. These’ve thought of it all, including a circular bottom to due away with that pesky crutch-in-drainpipe situation, and buttons, switches, and slides that can adjust for any size and shape person.

And look at that lovely handhold there. What a fabulous 12 degrees. Then of course, as with all modern transportation, replaceable plug-n-play parts and collapsibility are the crowning features on this contraption.

Designers: Beomsik Yoon, Eunsil Mok, Soonho Jung, Bomi Kim, and Bohyuk Im

    Very nice. Though here in Germany, the drainpipe problem would still exist, as the drains have covers with slits, instead of holes. Then again, around here the other type of crutches is much more popular (though they have the same problem).

    Also note that people who wear high-heeled shoes have these same drainage problems and the only real way to fix them is to have a much bigger point of contact. Like perhaps a tennis-ball sized bottom?

  • It seems like a safer, more modern and elegant crutch design to me, good job. If my hospital offered these to me, I would say it was an improvement.
