--- CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To adapt a standard walker for more efficient use outdoors. A larger lower inverted-U shaped crossbar was added to the front of the walker and large double casters with tires were attached to this bar to ensure proper tracking, while still maintaining the push-down braking action. In addition, the angle and position of the handgrips were adjusted by cutting a piece of steel that slides into the existing handle and drilling a hole in the new piece to hold it in position.
