  • New crutch design

    I am presently developing a new type of crutch, designed to as closely as
    possible to
    mimic the action of the leg in walking. This is a variation of the fore-arm
    or "Canadian
    Style" crutch. By taking advantage of the design capabilities of composite
    materials we
    are able to reduces impact shock and take advantage of energy accumulation
    and release
    in a very simple structure. Other areas of improvement include aligning the
    wrist to allow
    even distribution of force and reduction of Carpal Tunnel stress. and
    redistributing the
    load on the hand.
    I welcome input from anybody who has an interest in this area. If you would
    like more
    information please E-mail me at :
    Thank you for your interest.
