I would recommend replacing the brake wire that is frayed, which if you know what you're doing can be a cheap and easy fix. Otherwise, I would recommend taking it to a local shop that knows how to repair walkers, or a normal bike shop as bike brakes operate using a similar mechanism and the employees should be able to help you.

Hi delsea,

Your walker uses the same brake mechanism as the hand brakes on bicycles, so replacing the brake cable is exactly the same procedure. You just need a replacement cable to start with; as @fa1conx has suggested, a bicycle shop should have what you need. If there aren't any shops nearby, it's likely a well-stocked sports shop or hardware store may carry the cable.

Here's a wikiHow article on bicycle brakes that should give you everything you need to know about your walker's brakes.
