UPLEVEL: Brenden’s Cool Crutches

Hey everyone, I hope you all had a great 4th of July. I had a wonderful time with my kids, friends and their families. It made me truly appreciate how lucky we are to live in such an amazing country, where we are free to express ourselves and be what we want to be.

That brings us to the point of this post. Brenden is on crutches, and was tired of having them define who he was in the eyes of others. He wants people to see who he is first and foremost, and had the idea to transform his crutches–to make them express who he is, instead of him be defined by them. I gotta tell you, when I spoke with his family, this idea really moved me. We’ve always said we want Platypus to be a creative tool for upleveling and upgrading your environment, but never has it meant so much to me to be providing that tool as does here. Please leave some comments for Brenden and tell him what you think on this blog and on Facebook. I’m sure he’d love to hear from y’all!

    Hi folks! Brenden’s mom here. Thanks for the nice words of encouragement. He definitely is psyched to show off his crutches and has gotten a LOT of super comments from people. He’s a trend setter for sure. First with his trim material on his braces and now his crutches. We’re sure to transform his wheelchair next! Thanks for all your great words, it’s given him a super smile for the day! Keep coming up with great designs – I’ve got a whole world of people with crutches and wheelchairs to introduce this to!
