The development of ComeBack Mobility aims to help and support people experiencing rehabilitation as a result of musculoskeletal injuries. Virtually all the devices are assembled in Ukraine, except for a few parts from China.
Crutches support recovery and rehabilitation after injury or orthopedic surgery by minimizing weight-bearing on the affected leg.

Those complications can negatively impact healing and lengthen recovery time.
