CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To enable an individual with short stature to be assisted while using a walker. The walker consists of a fixed frame with a U-shaped base. Angled vertical uprights support arm troughs and handgrips. Four small casters provide mobility. The walker enables the user to carry out daily living activities as long as a caregiver guided the walker in the right direction. However, because the user was of short stature, the caregiver was required to bend over to provide this assistance, and because the user sometimes needed to move in reverse, a second set of caregiver grips was required that did not effect the user's space. Two stainless steel clips were used to attach a 20 millimeter tube handle topped with a handgrip to each of the back legs of the frame. The lower clip pivots so that the handles can be swung into the upright position when needed. The upper clip holds the handles in place. A front handle was created by forming a 20 millimeter steel tube bar into a U shape and covering it with rubber padding and fitting it across the space between the user's handgrips.
