Environmental Crutches / Product

Environmental Crutches

This cane is inspired by the shopping routine of the elderly on crutches. Based on observation, the elderly on crutches used to reuse plastic bags when shopping. The design takes this as an innovative point and supports this environmental protection behavior from multiple angles. The safety of the crutches is ensured by the horizontal non-slip threads to reduce the risk of the crutches falling off, the luminous strip on the front of the crutches to alert pedestrians in the outdoor night environment. Ocean waste plastic material, responding to the theme of ecological design.
