Freedom From Painful Crutches

Knee Walkers are a medical mobility device (sometimes called knee scooters, walking aids,walkers or mobility scooters) that provide a safer, much more comfortable, and easier way to maneuver around and a great alternative to crutches for those recovering from foot or lower leg injury or surgery which requires the foot and/or leg to be non-weight bearing for long periods during recovery.

Knee Scooters are designed for weight-bearing relief for those who have injuries that include: fractures, diabetic wounds/ulcers, torn Achilles’ tendon, sprained ankles, or surgery to the foot/ankle. They can also be used for partial or complete amputations of the foot while waiting for the wound to heal and fitting of a prosthesis.

Naturally Fitting

Knee Rover products typically resemble a scooter and utilize an elevated padded platform to rest the knee on and continuously support your injured leg. This design enables the user to balance naturally using two legs versus just one (like crutches). You then move yourself by pushing off with your good leg and steer the unit by turning the handle bar to control the direction of the front wheels. Your injured leg will remain elevated and fully non-weight bearing during operation.

Knee Walkers help you recover while remaining active and mobile.

Prior to the invention of knee walkers, patients had no choice but to limit activity during their weeks of recovery and use crutches or a wheelchair, hard work. Unfortunately, neither choice allows you to move freely and go about your day to day routine. When using crutches, your arms are supporting your body weight; your wrists,arms,upper back and shoulder are used for mobility, as opposed to the larger muscles of your legs.These joints where not designed to carry such a load daily. With the knee walker, you are using the wheels and leveraging your larger leg muscles to move freely.This is an absolute game changer.

Using these larger muscles means less upper body and joint pain, less fatigue for your body, and less chance of re-injury (which happens in over 50% of recovering patients) should you lose balance and put your injured leg on the ground,or even worse sprain a wrist,tear a muscle. Another benefit of knee walkers over crutches is the ability to be hands free while standing still, this enables the user to accomplish many daily tasks at home, at work or on the go.
