Filming on Crutches


Metro Makeathon




Amy uses crutches to mobilise, which can affect her balance and limit the use of her hands. As a media student, Amy wants to be able to film documentaries and short films independently with a hand-held camera, which she currently finds difficult. Our challenge is to produce a device that will assist Amy to film whilst maintaining her stability on crutches.


The team designed a simple camera stabilisation vest that is worn over the shoulders and strapped around the waist. The stabilisation system was made using 3D printed parts and Loc-line, allowing the camera to be repositioned as needed. To increase comfort and usability, padding and Velcro were added to the straps.
