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.

If you are recovering of foot injury or surgery, get rid off immediately of your crutches and purchase the most helpful equipment that you could ever have. I used crutches for a week, it was the worst week I ever lived. Until I purchased this scooter. The same scooter in other sites cost more than double that I paid in Walmart. I use the scooter in the house, in the office, etc. It is very versatil (foldable, turnable and ergonomically cushion) I installed a wicker basket on the handle bar so I don't have to carry a purse. People stop me in the stores and comment how cute it looks!

The knee walker is by far easier than crutches or a walker. I had ankle surgery and ended up with a cast up to my knee. No pressure on my right foot was allowed. The scooter glides easily and is small enough to maneuver around doorways and other obstacles. I can easily sit on the cushioned knee rest when the need arises. The price is very reasonable compared to others on the internet. I would highly recommend this to anyone with the use of only one leg.

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.

  • A. 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

  • A. 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.

I tried a Drive knee walker at the medical supply store that was much more expensive but had locking breaks - seems like a good thing when you first get it out of your car so that it does not roll. It was two metal buttons on the handle bar. Does this one have locking breaks?

  • A. The brakes do lock on this one. Actually I think both models the brakes lock. There is a pin you push down when you squeeze the brake and as it keeps the brake locked on the wheel. Any movement on the brake lever seems to release it so you learn to be careful. You are right it makes the unit very stable when the brakes are locked and you need stability as you are shifting your weight for loading and unloading into a car, couch, chair, etc. An added feature I did not learn about until we had purchased the scooter.
