Guardian / Crutch(Product)


High amputation patients have a lot of inconvenience because of the difference of body length after surgery. They need a low center of gravity to take care of themselves and also need to prop up the body as far as possible to reduce the difference between normal people. Guardian are a pair of crutches which designed for them to adjust height. When the user walks, crutches are in normal length and the center of gravity is low, so they can control walk speed very stable. When users need to communicate with people, go to bed, or take something high, only need to press the button on the handle.
