Customized Walker


Solution: For Tetra Newfoundland's very first project, a man with CP required a walker for outdoor use.  Tetra custom designed and fabricated a walker just for him complete with brakes, that allowed him to sit when necessary.

Volunteers: Ben Balan (Design), John Tucker  (Project Coordinator), Henriette Bandts Buys (OT), Jim Thomson (video), Technical Services, Memorial University (fabrication).

Donors: Interex Systems (plaque), Henriette Brandts Buys (mail pouch), Dupont (paints), The HUB (wheels), FP Mechanics (spray painting), Earle Industries (brakes), Cabot Autoglass (upholstering).
