Client has a 4-wheeled walker and needed the brakes to be operated with one hand and also to be weighted on the right-hand side.
Brakes. The clients right hand is weaker than the left, consequently, the walker was modified such that both brakes are now operated by the left hand.
This modification was effected in accordance with the method fully described in the report of Bristol Panel case no. 11\ 13-0 1
Stability. When the client is out walking he is a little reckless and has a tendency to fall to the left, and this has happened on a few occasions, causing minor injury to himself. 1.5 kg steel weights were fabricated to hang securely over the lower side-rails of the walker, one weight per side. This gave a small increase in stability, which probably amounted to no more than 10 to 15%
