Why knee walkers are a safe and stable alternative to crutches

Why knee walkers are a safe and stable alternative to crutches
June 15, 2017

Rest after leg surgery is vital, and must be done to help you recover properly. When you're able to get out and about, our Steerable Knee Walker can help you regain your independence, safely.

Recovering from any injury or surgery below the knee can mean staying off your leg for weeks or even months. The effect on your body both mentally and physically can be a long and difficult journey.


The Problem With Crutches

Crutches are notoriously difficult to live with and have been known to be more trouble than worth, and in turn, people are often reluctant to use them.

Crutches require an immense amount of upper body strength to use and place a disproportionate amount of pressure on the hands, often resulting in blisters and sores.


Why choose a Steerable Knee Roller?

Our steerable knee walker provides a safe, comfortable, and cost-effective way to get around until you’re safely back on your feet again.

  • Stability and support

The contoured knee pad adds stability and support for your leg, cast, or fracture boot

  • Adjustable 

You can easily adjust the padded leg support by turning the knob, meaning no tools are required. The handlebar height is also adjustable, making steering easy and taking stress off your shoulders. 

  • Dual hand brakes

Dual hand brakes keep the walker sturdy, ensuring your safety while maneuvering on both indoor and outdoor surfaces.

  • Lightweight and foldable

The knee walker is lightweight and folds down for easy transport and storage
