  1. I think, that this concept is not stable – vertical position is easy to bend for left or right from vertical position (connection between body and crutches). This position, are controlled only by 10cm arm in hand. Normally crutches are controlled by 50cm forearm, linear with vertical position.

  2. Proud of you two, Max! I think you’ll recognize the name ut, if not, this Ian and Nik’s dad at 5910 Oak. I hope all is well. Say “Hey!” to your mom and dad for us!

  3. I recall when you two put your concept out there for the first time. BRILLIANT DESIGN! You thought of everything. I particularly think it is impressive that you thought to camber (or campher??) the traction pads.

    Really, I cannot imaging sticking with the old school pain in the butt designs.
