CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To provide a custom adaptation to a walking frame for an individual with spinal cord injury and mobility disability. A folding rollator frame was ideal for this individual, but it did not include features such as a basket to carry everyday things or a tray for carrying meals from the kitchen to the table. The basket and tray needed to be easily removable for occasions where the walking frame would be folded to go in the car. A basket from Howards Storage World was hooked over the crossbar and secured with two black rubber straps. A bracket to support the basket was created from 6 millimeter plastic-coated fence wire. A heat gun was used to make molded plastic funnels to hold the bracket and held these in place with plastic clips. A fitted timber strip to the outer side of the basket is where the tray was hinged. The three outer sides of the tray have a small lip, and it is covered with a non-slip fabric, so there is no danger of anything sliding off. The tray is easy to lift up by just pushing down on the far side. TITLE: Carrying essentials. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 29, Number 1, March 2009: p. 12 PAGES: 2. (including cover).
