A couple of weeks ago, you might have seen photos of Harrison Ford with an odd-looking contraption growing out of his knee plastered all over newspapers and websites. The veteran actor broke his leg on the set of the new Star Wars Episode VII that is being shot at Pinewood Studios in London. Shortly after his accident, he was spotted walking around the city on a leg crutch. It was the first time many people, myself included, had seen the iWalk2.0, a crutch concept that was originally developed by a Canadian farmer that provides hands-free mobility to people with lower leg injuries.
"Millions of people use crutches every year, and the same millions of people hate them," says Brad Hunter, Director of Business Development for iWALKFree Inc. (Mansfield, ON, Canada). "How many products can you say that about?"
