--- CUSTOM ADAPTATION --- PURPOSE: To provide a customized braking system to a walking frame for use by a person with spina bifida, necrosis, and thrombosis. The walker was adapted by attaching a pair of locking bicycle hand-brake levers to the handlebars of the walking frame. The hand-brake cables are connected to the L-shaped brake friction bars to engage for both sets of rear wheels. The bars have a spring return so that the brakes can be easily applied and released when used on a steep slope such as a hill. TITLE: Necessary Braking. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 28, Number 2, July 2008: p. 8. PAGES: 2. (including cover).
