from Shorewood, WI – Verified Buyer

Assembly was pretty straight-forward. I was able to start "playing" with my DV8 quite quickly. I am more than happy with it. I'm non-weight-bearing on one foot for about 3 months due to surgery. Crutches are okay for (very) short distances and for stairs, but this knee walker saves a HUGE amount of wear and tear on my arms/shoulders (and on my other leg) for any amount of distance on reasonably flat surfaces. It rolls easily on smooth floors and is not too bad on carpet. You do have to be careful not to put your weight too far forward (on the handlebars) or the walker becomes top-heavy. It seems to handle fine if you use the handlebars just for steering rather than for upper-body support. For the same reason, if you add a basket or a bag, you might want to hang it low and on the inside of the steering column. On sidewalks and such pay attention! You need to slightly lift the front over bumps or you could throw yourself over. That same, slight lifting of the front helps in turning tight corners as well. As some others have commented, the large, raised logo is placed (rather strangely) such that one might end up kneeling on it. That is the only thing about this walker that was less than brilliantly thought out IMHO. Still, a pad over that should take care of it. All in all, I LOVE this thing and am very grateful to have found it. It lets me stay active and comfortable while I heal. As always, Wayfair got it to me quickly and efficiently.

Forget crutches!

from New London, CT – Verified Buyer

I would not have survived an entire month on crutches. They hurt, and I was convinced I would have more than a broken foot before the month was out. Ordered the knee walker with one day delivery and it changed my life. No exaggeration. I was so unsteady on crutches that I barely moved during the 24 hours I waited for delivery. Totally satisfied.

from Belchertown, MA – Verified Buyer

I had foot surgery and could not put any weight on it for 6 weeks. This walker is fantastic. It is sturdy, easy to maneuver and lightweight. I still have to use crutches to get up and down the few steps into my house - and every time I do it reminds me of how great this walker is. I would never have been able to get around with such ease without it. I highly recommend it.

Just what the doctor ordered!

from Deep river, CT – Verified Buyer

So much easier to get around the house then crutches or a wheelchair if you can not put weight on your foot. My doctor said he wanted me to get one of these for after foot surgery and I am so glad I did! Just takes a little practice to get the hang of it, and I would recommend putting on both breaks if you are going to lean on it like standing at the sink so it won't role away on you. Locking breaks, adjustable seat and handlebars. Doesn't come with a basket.

Knee scooter

from San Bernardino, CA – Verified Buyer

Really well made scooter considering I am 260 lbs. Adjustable handle bars and seat, brakes, and steers great. Good on carpet. Learning how to hop the deeper cracks in the pavement and concrete. Saving my foot with the use of this scooter. Highly recommended for anyone who has foot surgery or something borken.

Well made and sturdy walker

from Burlington, ON – Verified Buyer

The knee walker was the most important rehabilitation item that I purchased to allow me to get through two foot surgeries. I found the walker sturdy and easy to maneuver throughout the house and outside. I now longer require the use of the walker, but I will keep it for future operations that I might require. Great sturdy and well made product.

Highly recommended

from Pennsville, NJ – Verified Buyer

Sturdy and easy to navigate through my home. It moves easy on carpet and tile floor. I am able to do so many things that I could not do on crutches. I almost invested in a walker that only moved frontward and backward. I am so glad I spent the few dollars more so I could make turns easily. I can maneuver in small rooms and spaces. I hung a drawstring light backpack over the steering bar that easily helps me transport my phone and other small items from point A to B. Love it!

Great product and less expensive than the co-pay for my insurance

from Manchester, NH – Verified Buyer

Have to have several surgeries on feet. Much cheaper than paying the rental copays for this unit. Very easy to assemble. Very easy to operate. Would definitely buy again. The cushion for the knee is just a bit narrow to accommodate my leg. Only drawback - need to add a bit more padding to accommodate my leg. I am 5'11 .

knee walker

from Spirit Lake, IA – Verified Buyer

I like it very much. The 2 brakes are a must because the bearings on the wheels allow the ease of moving. The soft pad works well and could use also another layer of sheep skin or something similar on top.
