--- CUSTOM ADAPTATION --- PURPOSE: To enable an individual with balance and muscle disabilities to replace her old walker with one built to the same specifications. The individual had used the same walker for 24 years and it had been damaged. Working with a therapist, a number of commercially-available alternatives were tried over several years, but a satisfactory replacement was not found. A custom-made walker was built using the specifications of the original unit. The walker has a welded steel frame with a wide U-shaped base, large front wheels, and wheel-less back legs. The large front wheels are attached to a horizontal bar inside the base. Uprights with the handle grips are welded to the bar with the wheels and angled bars extend from the uprights to the back legs of the U-shaped base for added strength and stability. COLOR: Bright blue powder coat finish. TITLE: Replacement Walking Frame. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 27, Number 2, August 2007: p. 7. PAGES: 2 (including cover).
Notes: The TAD Journal is available in the collection of the National Rehabilitation Information Center (NARIC).
