Automatic Collapsible CrutchAutomatic Collapsible Crutch

People use crutches for lower-limb injuries to decrease discomfort and assist walking. Users encounter storage problems when undergoing certain activities (such as getting in and out of a car, or leisure activities). The automatic collapsible crutch collapses telescopically with the push of a button and allows the user to control the length of the crutch according to their height.

Bournemouth University has been extremely encouraging in helping me to obtain my degree.
