THE CHALLENGE

Angela can walk short distances using a crutch for balance and confidence. However, Angela is unable to grip a normal crutch as an amputee. The crutch Angela uses at present has a ‘croc’ shoe attached to support her arm. Angela attested to the functional capabilities of this modified crutch, but is seeking a more aesthetic solution that she would be proud to use.


THE SOLUTION

The device has been updated with improvements that Angela has provided to her student team, including a refreshed aesthetic design and increased comfort features. The design has been made out of customised foam pieces, thus reducing the cost of the device to make and maintain.
