Folding crutches

Folding crutchesThe client likes to ride pillion on her husband’s motorcycle, but cannot dismount without her crutches. The requirement was for folding crutches that can be carried in a back pack.

An old pair of aluminium elbow crutches was cut and fitted with box hinges from aluminium rod with carbon fibre tongues, arranged to fold in only one direction and to leave a space of 8mm between the legs when folded (to accommodate a sliding sleeve of grp tubing that locks them in position when open).

Family outings are back on the agenda.
