CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To enable an individual with polymyositis to independently rise from a seated position. The individual had an existing four-wheeled rollator-style walker with a seat, but the seat was too low for him to be able to pull himself to a standing position. The existing seat was removed from the walker and a new seat plate was made of 12-millimeter plywood. Attached to the seat plate was a thicker foam rubber cushion covered in Mereton fabric. The new seat plate was then attached to the walker. However, the higher seat rendered the walker's backrest too low. The aluminum tubing side supports were cut and extended with inserts, elevating the backrest. Rubber tubing covers each new join. The walker can still be folded as it could with the original seating.
