The Amazing Alter-Leg
Division:Health Sciences / None
Region:Cape Breton
City:Sydney, NS
School:Riverview High School
Abstract:The "Alter-leg" is an innovation that incorporates the use of material such as springs, sponge, and a heel stirrup to create a device that relieves pressure off of one's foot in order to decrease the length of time a person with a broken leg needs to use crutches. After numerous tests, the "Alter-Leg" proved to be more convenient and safer compared to crutches.
