CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To enable a child with cerebral palsy to use a reverse walker by pushing it in front of him. The walker was designed to be pulled behind the user. However, because of lack of arm strength and difficulty with balance and hip control, the child was unable to use it. Consequently, it was necessary to allow the wheels to travel in the opposite direction by changing the action of the walker by reversing the position of the clutch which acted as an anti-rollback mechanism. With the change made, the child can use the walker in front of him, leaning on it and pushing it forward. TITLE: Reverse Walking. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 26, Number 3, October 2006. PAGE: 7. Number of pages: 2 (including cover). 2006.
