CRUTCHair / Crutch and chair

In the bible, it says 'There is nothing new under the sun'
From a designer's point of view, it means that everything in the world is existed not by inventions but discoveries.
In order to descover something, you should listen to small but novel stories that happens in relationship with people and things.
I found the story from the people who are using the crutches, object(crutches) and enviornment.
So, I concieve an idea of new crutches.
The feature of the crutches is that it could use all the walls in the world as a back of a chair.
The handle of the crutches may become a chair and make people's exhausted legs comfortable.
