The Knee Walker is an excellent mobility device that allows an individual to get around after foot or ankle surgery or injury and cannot bear weight or has limited weight bearing precautions. It can be a great long or short term alternative to crutches or folding walkers that can have adverse effects, such as back or under arm pain from extended use. The Knee Walker allows the user to maintain an active and more independent lifestyle which will help him/her progress to a quicker recovery.
A Knee Walker is a padded cushion with wheels and a handlebar. The user puts the injured leg on the padded cushion making sure that no weight or stress is placed on the injured area. The user can maneuver much easier than with crutches and has maximum mobility.
