Walking aid extension
Posted 18 June 2015 in Case studies
Brian uses a walking aid because of his multiple sclerosis, but as he is 6ft 7in tall he had to stoop to use it. This was giving him backache and prevented him walking far.
Members from Remap Tyne extended Brian’s rollator, making it the correct height for him to use it comfortably.
Brian’s physiotherapist writes, ‘This has helped us resolve the problem in a very satisfactory way. It will impact significantly on my patient’s ability to move around and subsequently on his quality of life.’
