Knee Walkers

How to use?

To use a knee walker, the user simply places the knee of the injured leg on the cushioned platform and the cushioned platform supports the lower part of the injured leg.  Place one hand on the handlebar and use your good foot to push forward.  To turn, shift your weight to your good foot, just like you do when you are walking and lift the front of the knee walker or turn the handle – depending on whether the model is steerable or not.  A hand break is provided for increased safety and control.  We recommend you engage the hand break when getting on or off the knee walker.

What Conditions Can It Help?

Consider a knee walker if your injury is below the knee.  This could includes heel or foot spurs, diabetic ulcers, infections, fractures, dislocations, ruptured tendons, sprained ankles, or in situations where lower leg surgical operations are necessary.  Patients with amputations, arthritis, or with a neuromuscular problem may also benefit from the stability of the knee walker.

Crutches vs. Knee Walker?

Once you try one, you’ll feel the difference.  Crutches require users to maintain balance, while holding their injured leg in a bent position.  This is not natural or comfortable.  Also, sore armpits - addressed with the introduction of ergonomic crutches - are a common complaint from standard crutch users as well as sprained and sore wrists. Crutch users must take special care not to re-injure themselves while moving about.  On the other hand, knee walkers offer solid stability while supporting the injured lower leg and does so in a much more comfortable position.
