---- CUSTOMIZED ADAPTATION --------- PURPOSE: To create a custom adapted walker for a child with muscular dystrophy who is unable to stand or walk independently. A bright yellow walker was adapted using FREEDOM WHEELS bike components which would provide the child with postural supports similar to bikes. A high-riser bar was attached to the frame of the walker under the seat then a back support plate and thoracic fins were mounted onto the high-riser. These components are height adjustable on the high-riser so that they can be moved to provide optimum support as the child grows. This customized walker allows the child to easily interact with other children and provides him with freedom and independence. TITLE: Jaxson’s Wheels. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
