Knee scooters (also known as knee walkers) are useful for those recovering from an ankle or foot injury who are unable or choose not to use crutches. Knee scooters offer increased comfort and ease of mobility when you cannot put weight on your foot or ankle, but want to remain active.

Knee scooters generally have two front and one or two back wheels, a padded knee platform, and handlebars with handbrakes.

Below are some factors to consider if you are thinking about getting a knee scooter:

  1. Weight – Make sure the knee scooter can accommodate your weight, including clothing, outerwear, and items you will carry such as briefcase, backpacks, groceries, and personal items.
  2. Height – Determine if both the handlebars and knee platform adjust to fit your height and body proportions.
  3. Maneuverability – Knee scooters can be steered for increased maneuverability. Verify that the turning radius is sufficient to handle tight turns that you will encounter at home and office.
  4. Knee Platform – Check the sturdiness and comfort of the knee platform. Most knee scooters have an offset post to accommodate right-to-left adjustment.
  5. Handgrips and Handbrakes – Knee scooters come with one or two handbreaks, which impact the back, or back and front wheels. Make sure the brakes and handgrips accommodate your needs.
  6. Carrying Container – Check the existence, size, placement, and type of carrying container on the knee scooter.
  7. Outdoor Usage – Many knee scooters are designed for indoor use only. Depending on your work commute, lifestyle, and the topography and weather where you live, make sure the model you choose will serve your needs.
  8. Ease of Storage – Many knee scooters are equipped with an easy folding mechanism that collapse using a release lever for ease of storage and transportation.
