Single-handed operation for walking frameSevere disability of the client’s left arm precluded safe braking of their walking frame.

A plastic mould (made with help from occupational therapy department) was developed to be comfortable for the client. The double braking system was modified to single lever actuation. The plastic form was then attached to the handle bar replacing the normal handgrip.

The client can now safely use walking frame around the garden, to local shops or put it into the car for that trip out of town.
