Is there a walker designed for people with wrist pain?

I’ve had MS for 20 yrs and prefer using my walker (one where I can sit If I need to). I have a power chair but prefer using my walker.

The problem is besides all my other pain, USING MY WALKER CAUSES CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME. Because I lean all my weight on my hand bending at the wrist! I’m taking art & writing classes and carry things on top of my walker (including at home – coffee cup, etc). I was thinking about some kind of handle bar to grip that curls up; like a verticle handle bar where I DON’T bend my wrist!  Do you understand me?  Is there something out there like that already?

Sometimes I lean on my knuckles to stand up when we sing at church OR on my walker other times. But thats hard to do for any length of time! My pain is worse all the time and I’m sure many others have this problem.

If anyone is already working on this can you refer me to them?  I appreciate your help in this matter. Thanks
