CUSTOM ADAPTATIONPURPOSE: To enable an individual with mobility disabilities to carry a walker on a wheelchair. Designed for a wheelchair with two horizontal push bars on the back, the carrier is comprised of two sets of hooks that fit over the bars. Using extruded aluminum bars, two shorter hooks and two longer hooks were created by placing the aliminum bar in a vice and bending it to a 90-degree angle and then hammering out two pairs of curved shapes. The longer pair of hooks fit over the top bar of the chair and extend to the lower bar, where they are stabilized with a U clamp. The shorter hooks are bolted to the longer pair and curved outward. The walker hangs over the two pairs of hooks and a bungee cord is used to provide additional security. TITLE: Walking Frame Carrier. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Vol 22, no 2, Winter 2002: p 12.
