Handle rotation and a magnetic connection provides a stable platform for the user to sit down, have a rest, and know their crutches will be where they left them!

Adjustable handles, high glycerin gel padding and elasticated quick-release straps, all contribute to a user-centered level of comfort that is fundamental to their quality of life.

Data from the crutch is converted into a user-friendly display, alongside features like clinician feedback, goal setting and a community for Strutz users to connect.

As users will be continually growing, alongside the initial purchase, new larger parts are sent when growth milestones are hit. Strutz are on hand to assist wherever possible, which is just a part of the wider circular service offered.

Curious, brave and with an iterative mindset, I strive to create beautifully simple but significant design that positively impacts people’s lives.

When evaluating my designs over the last four years, I observe a journey of development and refinement with a personal, clean style at its core. My year spent in Milan shaped my ability to create high end, client worthy products, putting the end-user at the heart of the process.

I have developed a passion for social sustainability and the need for products that improve quality of life, which is why I chose to focus on young, long-term crutch users in my final project. This encompasses what I believe design should be - a beautiful aesthetic with every inch of function equally considered. The aim is to continue to question ‘what is’, to create something better for the future.
