Rent a Knee and Leg Walker at Careway Wellness Center
Lower leg trauma such as fractures, dislocations, sprains or any orthopedic surgical involvement of the legs will usually lead to limited mobility. Immediately, when one thinks of a leg injury or surgery, one thinks of crutches, a standard walker or even a wheelchair in order to be able to get around. It is well known that traditional aluminum or wood crutches take significant physical efforts, especially during the learning process, and can result in trauma to the underarms. Over the years, it was because of these disadvantages that a better solution to crutches has been sought by medical equipment manufacturers. Development and clinical trials were successful, and as an alternative to crutches, walkers and wheelchairs, the knee walker was introduced. Knee walkers fall into a relatively new medical equipment category and they have gained wide popularity among orthopedic physicians and physical therapists. What follows is a description of a knee walker.
A knee walker is a four-wheeled alternative to crutches or a walker as an ambulation aid. It is known by other names, such as, knee scooter or leg walker. Over the years it has taken on many forms, from small-wheeled devices suitable for indoor use to larger sturdier units capable of use outside on grass or paved surfaces. Today’s version is usually a lightweight unit with a foldable tiller design. With the knee flexed, it supports the shin of the injured limb. The opposite foot makes contact with the floor or ground, providing propulsion. The objective of the knee walker is to create a safe, comfortable, and easy-to-maneuver alternative to the traditional crutch. Prior to the introduction of the knee and leg walker, those experiencing foot injury such as foot sprains or fractures or below the knee surgery of any type had no choice but to limit activity during rehabilitation. Their only options were crutches, a traditional walker, a wheelchair or bed rest.
