Rolling Knee Scooter:

One of the most frustrating things for our patients is having to stay off of the foot or ankle after an injury or after surgery. Crutches are not always an option if the patient can’t safely use them. The knee scooter has been a nice alternative for patients. The can get around faster than crutches and it doesn’t take as much of a toll on the upper body. They are also very fun to ride around on, and patients often lose them to children or grandchildren because of this. I’ve seen many of these decorated to show the patients personality. After all you are stuck with it for around 4-6 weeks.
