The creator of this crutch is Behzad Rashidi, an industrial designer from Ontario, Canada, whose career project called Sit & Stand has become a James Dyson Award favorite.
Instead of a traditional crutch that is supported by the arm to support the weight on the upper extremities, Rashidi has devised a crutch that is attached to the leg and distributes the weight across the entire back of the thigh. The first great advantage of this system is that it leaves your hands free. The second is that the device allows the user to sit up unaided.
via This brilliant device completely reinvents crutches.
