Best Knee Scooter Accessories
We have compiled a list of our top knee scooter accessories based on our own customer feedback.
Knee Scooters, or knee walkers, are mobile assistive devices used for lower leg injuries that can be a great asset to anyone's recovery. Making sure you have the best accessories for your needs can ensure an easier transition to getting back to life as normal during recovery.
All of our knee scooter accessories are available with free shipping when you purchase or rent with us, and some of them are available on Amazon, which includes free 2-day shipping for Prime members.
Here are our top 4 best knee scooter accessories:
1. Knee Walker Basket Kit
2. Comfy Cushion and Memory Foam Knee Pad Covers
3. Drink Cup Holder
4. Waterproof Leg Cast Cover
1. Knee Scooter Basket Kit
Most of our knee walker models come with the baskets included, with the exception of the Free Spirit Knee Walker and the Drive DV8. If you did not rent or purchase from us at Rent a Knee Walker, or have a different model without a basket, you may be in need of this accessory. We believe that it's an absolute necessity when it comes to using a k nee scooter.
Look at all the stuff we were able to fit into our knee walker basket, available on Amazon and here on our website.
If you are returning to work after an injury, the basket can help you transport many work related items like files, folders and supplies. If you are shopping you have a convenient place to store your purse, water bottle, or keys!
If you haven't yet purchased or rented a knee scooter, keep in mind some places will upcharge you for this addition. Both our Swivelmate Knee Walker (perfect for everyday use in the home and office) and our Orthomate All Terrain Knee Scooter (the most lightweight all-terrain option) have baskets included, with no assembly required out of the box.
2. Comfy Cushion and Memory Foam Knee Pad Cover
There's a reason these are such a big sellers for us, and that's because they are essential for the comfort of your knee when using a knee walker. Most standard knee pads with knee walkers are hard and become uncomfortable after constant use throughout the day. These knee cushions provide real comfort and support with 2 additional inches of foam cushion.
How do you make your choice?
Depends on if you would like regular foam or the memory foam - or if you want white or black!
Comfy Cushion Knee Pad Cover Memory Foam Knee Pad Cover
Keep in mind when using the Comfy Cushion or the Memory Foam Knee Pad Cover that the knee scooter height should be adjusted 1 height setting down to accommodate the extra inches provided. If you are already at your knee walker's lowest height setting, these may not be the right product for you.
If you are on the shorter side, and want a knee scooter that accommodates your height requirement, consider the Swivelmate Knee Walker which at its lowest setting can accommodate users 4'8", meaning if you are 5' and up you should be able to use either cushion during your recovery.
Both knee cushions are fantastic additions for your knee scooter, which is why we rank them as the second must-have item closely behind the knee walker basket.
3. Drink Cup Holder
The Drink Cup Holder is perfect for your morning coffee or daily water intake. Whatever your hydration needs may be, our drink cup holder accommodates most cup sizes and is easy to install.
Simply clip on the holder and tighten with the thumb screw and its ready to go. If you are renting with us at Rent A Knee Walker, we offer a drink cup holder rental at the one time cost or purchase one.
4. Waterproof Cast Cover
Okay, so this isn't necessarily a knee walker accessory, but it's a huge must-have if you are recovering from a below-the-knee injury and sporting a cast, brace, or bandage of any kind.
The water-tight seal of our Water Proof Leg Cast Cover allows the user to bathe with ease during their time with a bandage. Our cast covers are built to last the time of most recovery periods, around 6 weeks, and will leave you looking forward to showering without having to deal with trash bags and duct tape.
