Youth-sized walker modified to improve stability


Requested Project

Modify the existing walker to make the wheels wider (28" clearance), lower the armrest assembly from 32 to 28", and provide adjustment holes to allow height to increase to 38" tall.

Design Notes

Plans for a new "leg assembly" were developed and submitted to P&D Welding, who had voluteered to fabricate/weld the new parts needed. These parts were assembled onto the walker and the adjustment knob modified to allow insertion into the new leg holes.  Completed design meets all defined design changes.

RCRV designer is Thomas Brennom, and was requested by Grant Wood AEA - Ann Griffin. The project was begun Apr 4, 2002 and completed Apr 4, 2002.
