Walking aid modificationA 16-year old girl with cerebral palsy, ataxia and learning difficulties required a four wheeled walking aid but had problems with her feet kicking the rear wheels.

The existing handles were extended using 22mm chromed tubing which matched exactly. The existing hand grips and brake levers were moved. The balance and stability of the device was still within acceptable limits. Height adjustments were still easily accomplished.

Lisa was very happy with the result and is now able to negotiate doors and around furniture without tripping up.
