The goal this project is to create a decision tree that helps patients see the different factors to consider for the different walking devices available to them. The end product will hopefully give patients a better idea of the pros and cons of each walking device, such as cost, location, compatibility, etc. By researching the different aspects of each walking device on online journals and databases, as well as talking with the physical therapists at the VA Hospital responsible for the rehabilitation of patients using walking devices, the data collected will then be used create this decision tree.
