Abstract: front page image
(EN)An ergonomic collapsible crutch for providing assistance with ambulatory movement of a user, the crutch including a supporting member having an underarm support surface and a hand grip portion, a gripping pad disposed remotely from the underarm support surface generally along a vertical axis and connected to the supporting member to provide stability and grip on surfaces of a walking environment, and a hand grip attached to the hand grip portion of the supporting member so that the handgrip extends from the supporting member at an angle from the vertical axis ranging from about 85° to about 60° and from about 95° to about 120°. The ergonomic collapsible crutch may also include a shock absorbing device and buttons for adjusting the height of the crutch as well as the position of the hand grip.
