A “Survival” Crutch / A “Survival” Crutch

A “Survival” Crutch
A “Survival” Crutch

This “survival” crutch is environmental-friendly. It electrolyzes the snow water to produce oxygen and supplies oxygen to the mountain climber by oxygen-supplying mask on the hand shank. The hydrogen electrolyzed can be used as a power burnt to produce electricity. Apart from electrolyzing water from snow outside, the entire system is able to produce electricity by knocking on the ground and rubbing it and store the electricity. A light is also set on the hand shank for supplying light for camping on the snow mountain or climbing mountain on the night. The hand shank also has SOS sender and GPS.
