There's no way left to use SVO pattern in this sentences.
It's because "She" is subject, "can't" a modal auxiliary in negative form and finally "walk " does the work of principal/main verb, bereft of Object, necessary to make the SVO pattern accurate.

Not every sentence has an object, and the verb “walk” cannot have one in typical usage. So this sentence just consists of a subject and a verb (with an adverb). The subject is “she,” and the verb is “can (not) walk.”
