  1. This device isn’t new. Mary Bridge Childrens’ Hospital in Tacoma, WA was using a similar brace and shoe set 15 years ago. They were calling them “Wacky Walkers.” I applaud the current inventor for her hard work and determination to let her child “walk.” Our son has Arthrogryposis and will never walk, run, dance or play like an abled child would. This device would never give him that freedom and independence he’ll desire, either. His spirit, determination, surgeries and therapies have, however, shown everyone what a resourceful 4-year-old can do. Someday we’ll find the means to get him a wheelchair van so he can go even further than he has now.
