What is the Best Knee Scooter for College?
- Whether you have sprained your ankle, had surgery, or had any foot injury, getting around college campus is essential.
If you are going to school, you probably have a busy schedule that doesn't leave you much time for yourself. That's why it's important to find a knee scooter that makes your life easier and more comfortable.
In this article, we narrow down the two best knee scooter models for use in a college campus.
Why use a knee scooter instead of crutches?
When you're injured, the last thing you want to worry about is how you will get around. Knee scooters can be an ideal solution for college students and athletes who have suffered an injury to their foot or ankle.
Trying to get around on crutches when you have a broken foot can be uncomfortable and not always practical. When you're in college you are on your feet a lot, walking from lecture hall to lecture hall and meeting up with friends and classmates.
This is where knee scooters can come in handy.
In the last few years, knee scooters have improved dramatically and now provide benefits for comfort and ease of use.

We have read many reviews, heard a lot of customer feedback, and tried many knee scooter models. We've chosen what we believe are the two best knee scooters for college students.
If you spend most of the time indoors
If you spend most of the time inside buildings, we recommend a knee scooter best suited to navigate tight corners and spaces.
The Swivelmate knee scooter has the unique feature of being able to make 90 degree turns easily. Its large tires make it suitable for comfortable outdoor use as well.
The best knee scooter for outdoor use
If you spend a lot of your day outdoors, doing errands, or going across campus from building to building, an all-terrain knee scooter will be a good choice.
We like recommending the Orthomate All-Terrain Knee scooter since its hybrid design makes it suitable for easy indoor use as well.
What students have to say
"This scooter has helped immensely with my recovery. Being a college student, I have a busy schedule and simply could not let crutches slow me down. I've been using your scooter for over five months now and couldn't imagine this recovery without it. Being handicapped is never all that great, but having this scooter has made my healing time way more fun. I love your product!"
- Georgia D. Johnson State College
"My knee walker was instrumental in my recovery. I currently attend the university of Central Florida and the campus is huge. There would have been no way I could have used crutches to get around everywhere I needed to be on time. Also my knee walker allowed me to have some freedom of travel as I could easily accomplish many tasks including school, work, and getting to/from meetings. I could not have made it the past month without my knee walker."
- Alan R. UCF student
What University staff have to say
Not only do students love the knee scooters, but the professors as well! Standing during a lecture or working on a foot or ankle injury can be taxing. We have had many college faculty members take advantage of our knee scooters.
"I broke my fibula in five places at 33 weeks pregnant. I will be non-weight bearing for 6-8 weeks. I am a chemistry professor, and my Swivelmate has allowed me to continue my research in the lab."
- Annette N. Atlanta, GA
"I went back to work IMMEDIATELY once I got the walker. Everyone at the office LOVED it! Walker prevented further accidents occurring while I hold down 1 full time job and part time college professor"
- Denise L. New York, NY
