Detailed Measuring Tips

To get the safest and most comfortable operation from your KneeRover product then it’s important to get measured before choosing the correct one ideal for you. Any height ranges we provide are intended to serve a general guide based on the average user. But because every person can be different in terms of leg height and torso it’s always safer to do an exact measurement just to be sure. When you are measuring it’s recommended to wear the shoes you plan to use during your recovery period as this can give the most accurate measurements.

To get an accurate measurement you’ll need:

  • Tape Measure
  • Something solid to safely balance yourself with, such as a chair or kitchen counter
  • An assistant to take the measurements for you

But because every person can be different in terms of leg height and torso it’s always safer to do an exact measurement just to be sure.

  • An assistant to take the measurements for you

Once you are balanced, bend the leg that will be used on the knee walker to a 90 degree angle. Please ensure that you are standing up straight and not leaning on anything as any imbalance can give a wrong measurement. Next, measure the distance from the bottom of your bent knee to the floor (see figure).

Please see our comparison chart to find the recommended KneeRover® product for you based on your measurement.

Please Note:

All KneeRover® products feature various adjustable knee pad and handlebar heights to ensure you can choose the most comfortable operation whilst obtaining a correct posture. Please see the images that demonstrate the correct posture on the KneeRover. You will notice that the handlebar is set at waist height so the arms and hands are in a comfortable position. You can also see that the hips are even, with the uninjured foot flat on the ground, and the injured leg is at a 90 degree angle.
