“DO IT YOURSELF” ENTRY --- PURPOSE: To adapt crutches with pockets for storage of everyday items such as a book, eye glasses, Kleenex, etc. for persons with mobility disabilities. The pockets are made of videotape boxes cut in half and spliced together; although, duct tape alone or other thin-type boxes can be substituted for shape and structure. To make pockets for the crutches, tape across a nice-sized box, straight around the crutch frame. Taping on a diagonal keeps the pockets stable. Positioning can vary, but generally are taped about 6 inches below the handholds, just above the fork. Stickers or other decoration can be added for personalization. MATERIALS: Duct tape and old videotape boxes or thin box material. SOURCE: http://badgermama.blogspot.com/2007/04/pollyanna-special.html, personal blog of Liz Henry.
