Abstract

This research aimed to develop walking aids (crutch) for physical impairment. This research use method research and development. The development of producing the walking aids was done through seven production steps, they are: 1) Needs and problems analysis of crutch user, 2) Product design, 3) Product design validation, 4) Product design improvement, 5) Trial of the product, 6) Product revision, 7) Product making and product branding. The result of this crutch development research is named CRAIO (Crutch All in One). After product trials and revisions, this crutch was produced to be more flexible for its users. The crutch height can be adjusted according to the height of the user, the crutch has cantilever combined by dynamic spring, and the crutch has several base pads that can be adjusted according to the passed terrains. According to these assistive technology designs, it provides a new design recommendation for walking aids as an innovation of market quality product.
