Folding Crutches are designed to enable a user to easily dismantle and stow a pair of crutches in the panniers of a bicycle. The triple section crutches fasten together with spring loaded fittings. They include a swiveling forearm support, a handle, and a rubber base. PROTOTYPE DEVELOPMENT: Designed by Yoel Guttmann for a user with one leg who travels by bicycle. Standard crutches are too long and awkward to stow on a bicycle, but these crutches are intended to dismantle for easy stowage and transport.
Notes: Tetra is a voluntary organization which links persons with disabilities, technical volunteers, professional engineers, technicians, and tradesmen. Persons interested in having this device made for them should contact Tetra.
