ASSET is developing Andrew's design of a retro-fittable spring-loaded crutch tip. It is designed to make life more comfortable and - hopefully - easier for crutch users.

Prototypes have been produced and we plan to pilot several hundred. We are currently looking for people to test them out. Think you can help? Please fill in the form below and we'll be in touch shortly.

About the A-Spring

Determined to finish the final year of his degree course, Andrew returned to Loughborough even though he was still undergoing chemotherapy treatment.

His prosthetic leg was cumbersome and slowed him down too much so he used crutches to get around. He became acutely aware of just how uncomfortable life on standard issue crutches could be for an active person.

The solution? Well he worked on a design for a retro-fittable spring-loaded crutch tip to make their use more bearable. He adapted the hand grips too. He refused to become dis-abled by his so-called disablilty. He constantly found ways of overcoming it - he wouldn't allow it to overcome him.
