Problem Statement

TMost people who break their foot are not allow to bear weight on it and require an assistive walking device to get around. While a knee scooter is the best option for people who require a lot of mobility (i.e. students on a college campus), they are bulky and lack the ability to be stored easily causing many people to have to choose between ease of mobility or compatibility. We designed a knee scooter that lets you have both! The scooter has the ability to completely fold in half increasing the storage ability and transportability of the scooter, thus reducing the complexities of having to use an assistive walking device.
