---- CUSTOMIZED ADAPTATION --------- PURPOSE: To create a custom adapted walker modification that allows an individual with balance, mobility and walking disabilities to easily carry and store a walking stick or cane to their walker. An elderly gentleman uses his walker with seat for extra support and the chair portion when he needs to rest. When shopping in some of the more crowded shops at the mall, the gentleman realized that being able to park his walker outside the store and use his cane for shorter distances would be ideal. A TAD volunteer created an attachment for the walker that held his cane when the walker was in use. The attachment consists of PVC pipe (just wide enough to fit the walking stick) and is attached to the walker frame using bolts and/or clamps. TITLE: New Walking Stick Holder for Walking Frames. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 32, Number 2, August 2012: p. 9. PAGES: 2 with cover.
