Modified Walker Helps Disabled Man
About 6 years ago my husband George was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis, and because of balance and weakness problems he needed help walking. He loves working outside, so he fixed up an old walker that I had used earlier when I had my knee replaced.
  He added 4 large wheels on back and 2 smaller caster wheels on front, which help stabilize the walker on bumpy ground. A wooden seat about halfway down allows him to sit as needed. He also added a holster for a grabber, which he uses to pick up things. (Martha Spear, 26815 86 Ave. E., Graham, Wash. 98338, marthspear@msn.com)
