The Best Heavy Duty Knee Scooter
- Various knee scooter models have different weight capacities. During the development phase, the manufacturer subjects the knee scooter to stress tests. The objective is to test the limits and gauge what their breaking point is.
Most knee scooters out there have a weight limit of 350lbs. On other sturdier models, their weight capacity up to 400lbs. But what if you are looking for the ultimate heavy-duty knee scooter for your foot or ankle injury?
Enter the Swivelmate Knee Walker.
The Swivelmate is our top of the line knee scooter model in our rental and purchase fleet.
The first model of the Swivelmate had a weight limit of 400 lb. The new and current version of the Swivelmate has an outstanding maximum weight capacity of 500 lb. Even though the majority of users won't come close to the weight limit, there is peace of mind knowing that the knee scooter they are using is extra-sturdy.
If you are looking to rent or buy a knee scooter, the Swivelmate is our top recommendation for freedom of mobility. Over the years, it has been our most rented knee walker. Aside from its sturdiness, we highly recommend it for its 90-degree turn capabilities. This is extremely useful when navigating indoors.
A lot of knee scooters by design have a wide turn radius, necessitating 3-point turns often so that you don't bump into anything.
Thanks to the triple front-wheels and patented BeltDrive steering, this is highly recommended for individuals who have to navigate tight spaces at the office or home. The dual hand brakes will make sure you are always in control no matter what situation you're in. The Swivelmate is one of the few steerable knee scooters that can be folded quickly for easy transport and storage.
This is an excellent steerable knee scooter that is so intuitive and comfortable that you forget you are using it sometimes. It works with you, not against you.
The Swivelmate heavy duty knee walker is available for purchase exclusively through us at Rent A Knee Walker. If you are looking to save money on a knee scooter, we occasionally stock refurbished models. If you are looking to rent it, and you want to ensure you have the newest model with the 500lb weight capacity, give us a call at 877-520-3708– and customer service will arrange that for you.
