To convert a standard walker to a rolling platform walker, affix a 22 by 8 by 1/2 inch plywood board across the walker handgrips with strapping and metal screws. the board provides a stable platform on which to pull up to standing and perform forearm weight bearing for ambulation. Place soft padding over the plywood to prevent splintering. Insert two Lumex Auto-Stop wheels into the front legs of the walker to permit easy forward rolling while providing a braking action, which prevents rolling during forearm weight bearing. Insert two 2 inch swivel casters with an expandable stem into the two rear walker legs to ensure maximum mobility. Includes photograph. SKILLS REQUIRED: Woodworking. Assembly. AUTHOR: Fillyaw, M.
