Customer review by EMT001

5.0 stars by EMT001

I had rented a walker similar to the 780 for a month many years ago for my right foot, but needed it for 2 more weeks and had to pay for another month. This time for my left foot for which I had surgery, I bought the 780 and found it difficult to maneuver in the house and on straight runs it tended to steer left. So I bought the 790 and returned the 780. What a difference especially in the house. It folds nicely to fit on the rear seat of our car and light enough for my wife to handle. For our basement stairs from the ground level to our living area, I sit down and pull or push it up or down the stairs, by the handle and rear wheels. With the handles folded, a basket on the front gets it the way, but I put one on the rear of the handles which works well. The cost is worth the purchase, and when I finish, in about 2 months, I will donate it to our Fire Company Ladies Auxiliary loan closet. What a great replacement for crutches, and everyone comments about how great it works.

Fantastic alternative for crutches as I just broke my ankle. I live in a one level home and can get around quicker than my kids! Just travelled to Jamaica and brought it along ..great for getting through the airport and the main part of the resort. (Had to take crutches for the beach and pool area). Everyone thinks it is cool and wants to try it.

The knee walker is sturdy and certainly enhances mobility. The locking mechanism works great. It makes a good seat to use picking up dropped items and a good foot rest when out of bed to keep the foot elevated. So lucky to have it instead of the walker and especially instead of the crutches.

  • Not very practical in the house with carpet, but downstairs with lots of room, and I do coming home from my daughters house. 200 yards down hill works great sitting down. My whole upstairs is carpeted, some carpet is thicker than others, so it is a little harder, but I do it all day. GENERAL CAUTION: BE VERY CAREFUL OF CRACKS, SIDEWALKS, STREETS, EVEN SMALL STONES, CHANGES IN FLOOR HEIGHTS, BETWEEN ROOMS, OR YOU END UP ON YOUR NOSE!

  • Not comfortably or conveniently. The pad is molded and designed to accommodate a lower leg rather than a person's bottom.

  • You're supposed to put your knee on it and push with the good foot. One little push goes a long ways.

  • yes, this was purchased for my husband who broke his heel. He was told by his therapist that is was safer for him to sit and scoot, that way he wouldn't lose his balance trying to pedal with one foot... it has been a great help for him. so much easier than trying to maneuver a wheel chair around the house.

  • Yes There is a weight max, however, I have done it. It is a little awkward, but it can be done.

  • It may be possible. However, the seat is long and narrow and molded for a knee and leg to rest on. It probably wouldn't be comfortable for any amount of time.

  • They are really designed to be used like the lady in the photograph. I suppose you could use one as you suggest but a wheelchair would be more suitable. I have used these knee walkers on 3 different occasions and I highly recommend them. They are so much easier to use than crutches.

  • you have to *really* tighten the allen screw that you can see when you release the handle to flop down the handlebars.

  • I hope by now you know the answer! Release the latch to lower the handles, the allen screw in the bottom must be too lose. Make sure the handles and wheels are correctly aligned and tighten the allen screw. Recheck the alignment. LOL

  • Most likely you did not tighten the screw which locks the handle bars in place.

  • you have to tighten a screw that is within the handle bar...the instructions don't say, but you need to disengage the handle bar as if loading it into car...there is a screw inside the release section...line up the handle bars so they are straight with the wheels, disengage the handle bar and try not to tuen them while laying handle bar down or they will not be lined up, and then tighten this screw with the allen wrench that came with cart. It is a bit tight trying to tighten since there isnt much space...good luck.

  • The wheels are a black plastic but they are covered by a clear hard gel coating. I have not had any trouble with marks on the floor. When I go out with it we always wipe the wheels down with an antiseptic wipe before we bring it back into the house.
