Empowering crutch users to carry essential items

Daisy Bermudez had recently broken her femur and found herself using crutches for 8 weeks. She was living alone at the time and noticed that whether someone is using crutches or a walker, there is no easy way for the user to carry food or drinks without spilling. The US Census revealed that 4.8 percent (11.6 million) of US population uses a cane, crutches, or walker to assist with mobility. Her team of makers, developed a cup holder that can attach the crutches and carry hot cups, cups of beer, or any other beverage she is interested in drinking.
