The Customized Walker 2

Originator.......Tom Jeary

E-mail.......tlj@golden.net


THE PROBLEM:  The child's stature is such that a comercial walker was not available. Her height from floor to waist is just 11 inches. It was also required that the walker be as light weight as possible, yet still rigid.

THE SOLUTION:  Standard 3/4" plastic water piping,elbows and t-joints ( available at any hardware or plumbing store ) was used to custom build a walker to fit her needs. Hardwood dowling was used to plug the pipe which was then drilled out to accept the casters. The side supports have a vertical section which can later be cut, if required,  to add an insert to heighten
the top ring as she grows.
