Forearm prototype model
While researching grips, I found an article about a Georgia Tech graduate Partha Unnava which has 3D printed a new design for crutches. It incorporates the same ideas we had for forearm support bar and better grip. However, these crutches require completely new manufacturing. We would like to see if we can incorporate his grip design concepts but attach it to pre-existing crutches many people and business already own. By physically lowering an average crutch to it’s shortest setting, we can potentially replicate this type of design while saving people money and resources. Designs of the crutch are currently in progress.
We have also successfully set one of our printers to print Ninja Flex! Meaning we can build softer and more pliable grips with our 3D printer
