This is a portable stander with an attachment to be able to play putt putt.

My youngest son has Muscular Dystrophy and has very weak muscles.

I originally made a scooter for him, and when my older son wanted to play putt-putt, thought of a way to expand the idea so we could all play together. 

It uses 1-1/4" PVC pipe for the framing, 3/4" PVC pipe for the putter, a scrap piece of shelving to stand on, scrap material for the seat, and hose clamps and carabiners to attach the seat to the frame.

Step 1: The scooter frame

First step is to make the scooter...

1.  Cut 4 pieces of 1-1/4" pipe to make a square.  I made mine 12" inches long.
2.  Cut 4 pieces of 1-14" pipe for the legs.  Make the height comfortable for whoever will be using it.
3.  Connect together with 4-way slip connectors.
4.  Add caster wheels -- I got the fittings here: http://www.formufit.com/1-1-4-7-16-pvc-caster-pipe-cap/
The wheels I got from HomeDepot
If at some point you need padding over tubing (to prevent injury) pool noodles are just dandy. Cut length you need, cut the piece lengthwise & fasten over the tubing with duct tape
Excellent! I am going to use part of your design to add a club to my wife's walker. Thanks.
a awesome idea !
