Great product & service
At the suggestion of my surgeon I rented a northrup knee walker to help my recovery from fusion surgery on three joints. It made it so easy to get around vs. crutches or walker. I returned it once I was weight bearing, a month later I went back to non weight bearing thanks to a stress fracture. I literally called while my cast was being fitted and knee walker central kindly shipped it out for arrival the next day (a Saturday). I'm so grateful. Plus the person I spoke with showed empathy. Having been through a ten week recovery, facing four more, the kindness was appreciated. Thank you!
I have to rent a knee walker but I have Charcot foot it is hard to walk with this problem. I have to get use to riding a knee walker.
Oh, the Freedom!
Like so many others, I hated my crutches from day one. Though I'm in my fifties, my body is in good shape from weight lifting and jogging, but crutches are just no fun and lead to sore spots on my hands and armpits. Plus, I have to rely on others to bring me beverages and food. The knee walker has tremendously enhanced my mobility while keeping me off of my left foot. In retrospect, i should have spent the extra money for the kind that turns, but I'm sure I'll get more and more comfortable with the roller's use as time goes on.
Works like a kid’s scooter
This knee walker works great, but I earned the nickname “Sammi Scooter” after a bunch of my friends commented on how much it looks like a kid’s scooter. But I can live with the nickname, considering how it made my non-weight bearing recover so much more manageable. Whoever invented crutches should be punished for crimes against humanity.
Great mobility device if you’re the right size
This is a lot faster than using crutches and gives you free hands. This is ideal for moving around the house, and I found that I was able to interact with my kids more on a knee walker vs. crutches.
My only complaint is that this knee walker is probably not meant for everyone. It was perfect for me, but it’s only meant for people less than 250 lbs. I’m sure this would be a problem for a lot of people, especially bigger guys like me. Also, I’m just less than six feet and I had it set up at one of the shorter settings. I think this might make it a problem for people to use if they’re around the five-foot mark, but I could be wrong.
I only needed this for about a month or so, so I didn’t need any advanced steering options like on the more expensive models. It’s a bit of a workout to turn, but since I couldn’t exercise due to my foot injury, this actually became a really big benefit.
