sus-mate / Crutch

sus-mate

Sus-Mate is designed to be your best supporting companion. Be injured is already in suffer, if you still have to endure the uncomfortable while walking, it’s really painful.
We simplify the traditional crutch’s contour; remove the non-essential skeleton to keep it simple. Use carbon fiber as main material, make it lighter and stronger. Sus-Mate can reduce the uncomfortable pressure under the armpit, and give you’re a great rebound in each step by using the spring. Special plastic head design prevents slipping. Through the folding, it can also be used as a walking stick. Sus-mate is design to provide a comfortable way in using a crutch.
