The Sit & Stand Crutch proposes a style of prosthesis that differs greatly from the conventional sort. You're probably accustomed to seeing walking aids that support either the underarms or the hands, but this design suggests the use of the upper leg to bear the weight of the body.

Behzad Rashidizadeh's concept straps to the wearer's thigh, making it best for injuries situated around the knee, the lower leg, the ankle or the foot. The contraption would be adjustable to various heights and flexible to enable natural movement. With the Sit & Stand Crutch on, the user would be able to walk without a slouched posture, sore underarms and full hands. This assistive device would allow the sufferer of a broken leg to open doors and rest comfortably in an upright position.
