I got a request for the spreadsheet so that Robyn could build a walker for her son before they went to the beach.  They were able to build the walker and here are the results from their trip…

Hi Jennifer. I have been meaning to send you these photos from our beach trip. It was great to have the beach walker and for Luke to have more freedom on the beach!! I didn’t get any really good photos sadly – I think we must have gotten sunscreen on the camera lens. But I wanted to at least share these with you and say a big thank you. We are so grateful for the resources you provided and for the wheels. We learned a lot with this “model” and will hopefully improve upon it for the future models. Luke has high tone and spasticity so he needs something very sturdy to support all of his weight. Next time we probably need to make it with bigger PVC (we used 3/4 this time) and larger wheels. When we do upgrade, we’ll be glad to send the wheels back to you.
