elastic crutch

Recent years,the phenomenon of aging is becoming
more and more serious.To this condition ,we design an
oxter crutch ,which is specially designed for disabled
people. The crutch has support pole.And there is spring
in the pole which helps slow down the impact force. what
is more,fixed pole fitting to walk on flat is in front
of the handled pole which has selective device. Besides,
the place of rotary handled pole to the reverse side can
use spring,the design makes walking up and down stairs
more easier.
