Swift

Swift is an arm-free crutch for individuals with a below-knee amputation that slips on and off quickly for in-home mobility.

Putting on a traditional prosthetic leg is a time-consuming process requiring a liner and perhaps some socks before putting the prosthetic on. During user research, the designer was shocked to find that many amputees would simply crawl on the floor if they needed to get up to use the bathroom or get a glass of water during the night. Swift addresses this issue by providing a prosthetic that can be simply slipped on, allowing for quick and easy short-term use.
