I think it's wonderful!
I hope it does come on the market - I can think of dozens of helpful applications.(I once had a broken andle - wish I had one then - I was a parts mgr. in a Honda shop - it would have beaten those crutches all hollow!)
Maybe someday????

I have to agree! I have arthritus in both knees and would LOVE to have one of these! Has anyone heard if it will ever come on the market or be available through "prescriptions?"
