While there are countless knee scooters in the market, only a few are well-built. Knee scooters are used by patients who have had foot surgery or major injuries. Health experts recommend the use of knee scooter as an ambulation aid for ease in walking and other movements.

Compared to crutches, traditional walkers and wheelchairs, patients who use knee scooter can move the extremities much more freely. Crutches are good, affordable and durable, but cause additional body pain especially on shoulders and underarm.

On the other hand, traditional walkers make the patient hop to move, while wheelchairs promise only limited movement.

Knee scooters are mostly recommended as mobility aids. One of the bestselling knee scooters is the KneeRover Steerable Knee Scooter Jr. It has several amazing features with therapeutic benefits. The KneeRover has a delightful color so you won’t just have a regular knee scooter; you’ll have a stylish one.

It is quite difficult to find a knee scooter that can be of used not just indoors but also outdoors. Most knee scooters have an aesthetic look but poor quality.
