MUSTANG
We are pleased that you have chosen the R82 Mustang as your child's new walker.
The Mustang is a walking aid from R82, suitable for children needing supplementary
assistance with their daily walking. The Mustang can be used by e.g. CP children and
others with lack of balance and impairment of their motor function. The Mustang is
developed as a basic anterior walker but can also be used as a posterior gait trainer,
depending on the child’s level of ability.
The Mustang comes in 4 sizes. Size 1 is equipped with four 4” castors and is primarily intended for indoor use and can be used outside as well on level surfaces.
Size 2+3+4 are equipped with 4 solid wheels (200 x 50 mm) and is suitable for
both indoor and outdoor use.
This user manual is to assist the user/caregiver in proper use of the Mustang.
Therefore we recommend reading through this manual before use.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
FRAME
Check all screws on a regular basis. Also, it is important to keep the Mustang clean, both for sanitary reasons and to prolong the life of the product. Take special care to clean the holes for the
directional stabilizers. Wash the frame with car shampoo or dish washing liquid. If the Mustang is
overly dirty, a grease remover may be used.
INSPECTION
It is important to tighten all screws on the walking aid on a regular basis. All screws which secure the accessories must be checked, at least once a month. Also, it is important to check for
any cracks or faults in the frame, PVC parts, etc.
REPAIR
If there is a problem with your Mustang you should contact your dealer at once. Defective Mustangs
should not be used. If your Mustang needs reconditioning or repair, only original R82 parts may be
used. Accessories or available spare parts which are broken can be sent to R82 for repair. If there
are problems with the frame, the whole Mustang needs to be returned to R82 for repair. R82 will
not be held responsible for damage or injury caused by use of non-original parts or repairs made
by a non-authorized R82 person.
