Users comments
On a trip to Spain Conny started using an ordinary hip pack to keep an eye on his wallet. He discovered that the pack also held his feet in place. Since the hip pack was too small he bought a larger bag and asked Hjälpmedelcentralen (assistive device center) to modify it. Padding takes the pressure off the backs of his calves.
