Instituto Nacional de Tecnologia Tour Crutch
Tour Crutch is Silver Design Award winner in 2020 - 2021 Differently Abled and Seniors' Assistance Design Award Category.
Tour Crutch

Tour is a crutch designed to help users by providing a better forces distribution among the forearm and wrist, giving more support to stand up and sit, and letting the hand free to interact with objects around it. An intuitive, low-cost gyratory system allows shifting the angle between the handle and the forearm support and the rod. The same rotation also serves as assistance to stand up, reducing the effort needed. A band around the forearm complements the system giving the person freedom to hug, open doors, and interact with other objects without the crutch falling.
