As a child, crutches were almost a hallmark of the adventurous, from falling out of trees to the consequence of a luxurious skiing accident.
Broadly speaking, a crutch is a medical device which helps a person walk from one spot to another.
By helping to bear their body weight, crutches aid mobility in people with either short-term injuries to life-long disabilities.
The first evidence of their use dates back to the time of the Pharaohs, clearly visible in a carving dating to nearly 3000 BCE.
The earliest crutches were essentially a T-shaped design, which slowly morphed into the more popular V-shape in use today.
They were made form a piece of hardwood cut to length, and split near the top to create this V-shape.
