Drive Medical Knee Walker
maxine r. from salinas, ca
I am a 65 yr old female with a partial foot amputation with chronic ulcerations.
This knee walker is very sturdy and stable. I really like that aspect of this product. I also like the larger wheels. I ordered a basket for it also that is very helpful.
The only weakness is that the front wheels do not rotate. That makes it a great deal more difficult to maneuver. If you come up with a fork assembly wth wheels that we can switch over the front wheels, please let me know. I will order them immediately.

68 year old female - torn tendon in left foot - surgery to sew tendon - must stay off of the foot.
Ease of getting around rather than crutches.
Turning it around - would be better if it steered - but realize you probably have one at greater cost.

Uniqueness and price of product
Brake assembly has failed within 1 day of arriving on two of our knee walkers. Spare parts are too slow to be shipped. Still awaiting 1 brake assembly and the unit has been out of action for 4 weeks.

I am 63 years old in fairly good health. I had my right ankle fused to aleviate pain from osteoarthritis. The surgury required that I be non-weight
The walker allowed me to use my hands in meal preparation or brushing teeth or whatever the task while having the support of my knee on the walker and my other foot on the floor. It is lightweight and easy to assemble. Easy to operate. I was able to use it up and down steps once I experimented with it.
The quality of the vinyl cover could be improved. I wished that there was an adjustment of the knee pad for different height people. Also, the brakes never really held. When folded there was no way to keep the knee pad in place in an upward position, it kept opening while trying to place the walker in a car.
