Support for Light Weight Crutches – Link in Profile
I am a survivor / dreamer / artist and independent consultant in marketing. I’ve overcome 14 surgeries since birth; and have been holistic (without medical treatment) for 4 years. I believe your mind is powerful to resist any form of pain if you focus on strength.
I have been in full body braces from neck to feet; and bound to a wheelchair for 15 years of my life. I’ve built the upper body strength to persevere using forearm crutches as my independent form of mobility.
I met a product designer at university; Skyler who has created an invention for light weight crutches. With the use of these crutches; I can eliminate the weight barrier on my upper body that cause pain throughout my hands, lower back and shoulders.
I’ve developed this donations page to raise funding for our legal aid, patent approval and working prototype of crutches.
