How did My Add On come about?

11 June 2019

-creativity is intelligence having fun-

Crutches have been the same for decades, as have the complaints that come with them. This was clearly pointed out to me by my grandmother, so I decided to create a design that would solve her problems with crutches. This is how I came up with the idea of developing a crutch handle cover.

This is a kind of silicone stocking that you roll over the handle of your own stool, drastically improving its use. By using this sleeve, you solve the three biggest frustrations of crutch users: sore hands, falling crutches and slipping when your hands are sweaty. Thus, the MySleeve was born!

By developing the MySleeve, both my grandmother and many others have the ability to comfortably go about their day on crutches. Would you also like to share your story in our blog? Then feel free to leave your story in the comments.
