The ARMM, a dynamic structure that attaches an individual’s wheelchair directly to their walker. This device provides lateral support to the individual transferring from a wheelchair to a walker and also trails the wheelchair behind the individual’s walker to provide a safe support system.
The ARMM increases the frequency of ambulation, increases walking confidence, and decreases sedentary time. The device will also decrease medical costs associated with mobility training and also eliminates the need to purchase other expensive mobility training apparatuses.
