    I love my knee walker. It is so much better than crutches. It actually makes me faster than people walking normally. Sturdy and well made. I am 6'7" and 245 Lbs. I get around great on it. Cannot recommend it enough. You will be glad you got it. I was.

    We purchased this knee walker for my wife who had foot surgery. It was waiting on the doorstep when we got back from the hospital. I had it put together and she was using it to get around that evening. It provides her with mobility and independence. Every detail looks great. I was really impressed with the engineering and design. It has good stability, but is narrow enough to get around in tight places. The turning radius is not very tight, but it is easy to pick up the rear end and just turn the walker and go. I was surprised to find that when you unlock the handle, it only folds down on the seat with the front wheels turned. Eventually my wife pointed out that this positions the front wheels at an angle so that the walker is narrower for tighter stowage - still very clever. At Walmart's price, this is an exceptional piece of mobility equipment and I recommend it for its application.

    I bought this Drive scooter in advance of ankle surgery for an alternative to crutches. I would recommend anyone needing to get around purchase this well built scooter, in advance, take a few turns and take it with you to your surgery. The scooter is sturdy and lunch more stable to use when first waking up than crutches. Go slow, as directions state, put the brake lock on when getting on and off, and come to a stop before hitting brakes to avoid being tossed off. The front steering works well and easily. The construction is heavy duty but the weight is light enough I can comfortably stand on one foot while lifting the seat of the scooter to accomplish a backup turn. You do need some sort of secure pillow to keep from bruising the knee area. I love love love this mode of transportation to get around in my house. Common sense dictates go slow, lean on the handle bars while having a grip on the brakes and use caution when rolling from hardwood floor to carpet. The next five months will be long, but at least I can get around safely. And that beats hobbling on crutches anyday!

    Excellent knee scooter for someone with a foot or ankle injury. Easy to use, easy to turn and the brakes makes it a useful mobility item. Essential for someone that has problems using crutches. Will use everyday while recovering from surgery.

    Works even better than rental version had for a few weeks before buying this -- should have bought sooner. Good quality. Easy to assemble.
