Flexability Crutches make limping fashionable


Imagine this. You are on a skiing trip, equipped with the most wonderful gear and clothing, with plans to grab all the possible attention there. Alas, fate has a broken leg in store for you and there goes your chance of impressing the crowd. To make matters worse, you are stuck with those clinical looking dull crutches to move around with. There is precious little that you can do about the accident part, except perhaps practice harder and hope for more luck. However, about making the hobbling a more pleasurable experience, there are these designer crutches from qed*.

After observing that there has been no real improvement in the way crutches look for over forty years, the German design team decided it was time for them to evolve. So you have their Flexability crutches donned in bright sporty colors keeping pace with the latest in fashion. If you are wondering if these flexible crutches are all looks and no functionality (remember, you still have to deal with the limping), no worries there. Made out of molded glass-reinforced plastic, the crutches are shaped to make their usage as flexible and comfortable as possible. Storing them while not in use is also made easy by the fact that they can be stacked on top of each other. Quite a useful feature for those who want to stack up all possible colors to match their outfits. Sadly, there are no details on the availability and pricing as yet.

C Scott:

It would be great if these could be made available at an affordable price to people in developing countries who often have to manage without the 'luxury' of proper crutches. I hope they do not become just some designer accessory. People all over the world should be able to benefit from great design like this.
