Picture of Resistance Exercise Attachment for Walkers

A simple board attached to a walker with resistance bands can provide low impact leg exercise options for someone with limited mobility.

I wanted to come up with something that would let the user utilize the fact that they have a tool that is sturdy and holds a lot of weight (their walker) for strength training without being too cumbersome.  Since it is lightweight, easy to take on and off and portable it can be used anywhere someone takes their walker.

The board allows someone to perform a seated leg press, targeting quads and the lower abs.
