---- CUSTOMIZED ADAPTATION --------- PURPOSE: To create a custom adapted armrests for a walker to be used by an individual with cerebral palsy and limited mobility. A previous modification to the walker added a padded, curved bar for the individual’s safety, but the existing gutter split armrests were at the wrong angle for his posture and were not comfortably padded. The existing armrests were removed, and two new rests created from a 12 millimeter ply base and 25 millimeter foam pads covered in brown vinyl were added. The new armrests were then bolted onto the tube frame of the walker, parallel to each other. TITLE: Simple but effective. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 30, Number 3, July 2010: p. 14-15.
