Celebrities Using Knee Walkers
- Celebrities are human too! Knee walkers are fast becoming the leader in mobile transportation especially in Hollywood. From Rod Stewart to Mario Lopez, Axel Rose and more.
With the public lives celebrities live, having more freedom of the arms and hands is important for autographs, shaking hands, and allows celebrities to have a better recovery rather having to settle on alternative options such as crutches or a wheelchair. Lets take a look at why knee scooters have caught the eyes of these celebrities who have used them to assist in their recovery.
Known for some of the many great songs of our generation, Stewart had no intention of his injury getting in the way of his personal life. He was recently recovering with wife Penny and you can clearly see this rock star enjoying life to the fullest.
By the looks of it, Stewart felt really comfortable moving around on the knee scooter and although he tried to stay incognito, that famous hair and distinctive face gave it away. The amount of freedom provided allows the person to do something as simple as walk to Starbucks just like Stewart!
One of the funniest men alive was also recently impacted by what life on a knee walker can be like. Gervais’s partner Jane Fallon recently had a lower body injury and needed a knee scooter to help her through. Needless to say, Gervais did what he does best and poked some fun at his partner.
While he was doing that Fallon made a full recovery and the knee scooter absolutely had an impact on that. Fallon was using a StrideOn Knee Walker which just so happens to be our sister company. The StrideOn is fully steerable and allows the user to steer in the tightest of areas at almost a total 360 degrees. As you can see using the model indoors and outdoors is completely attainable. The Swivelmate Knee Walker is US version of this scooter that's available for rent from us.
He is one of the greatest artists in the modern music era but just like you, all celebrities are human. Although they seem invincible up on stage accidents do happen and when they do celebrities need to recover in order to continue doing what they love.
Ne-Yo was spotted on a scooter and just because he suffered an injury, he was all smiles. Considering the mobility and function he still has while using a walker its plain to see why it’s a good choice. Ne-Yo was easily able to move around while still having both hands to sign autographs with.
A lower body injury also impacted Tamra Judge. The reality television personality who is also known for her time on Real Housewives of Orange County has been dubbed one of the most beautiful women in the world. Tamra Judge used a Nova Knee Scooter and Knee Rover All-Terrain Walker to get around during her recovery period.
She also graduated to an iWALK 2.0 which gave her the freedom to walk independently when she was not using the knee walker. This particular model is an exceptional option for recovery that can make life truly feel like it’s returning to normal. It’s also a great moral booster to move in regular motions again.
Another rock star who was spotted on a knee walker was none other than Axel Rose. The Guns N Roses Star had an injury but just because injuries happen doesn’t mean they need to drag a person down. With a knee walker Rose was able to easily navigate the streets and was even able to fly with a knee scooter.
We receive many questions from people who ask if knee walkers are allowed on planes and you can check out that story here . As for Rose perhaps no one looks cooler on a knee scooter than him!
Best known for his acting roles ins “Saved by The Bell” including his runner up finish in the 2006 edition of “Dancing With The Stars” was suddenly struck by an injury last year. Lopez tore his Achilles tendon and unfortunately had to go through a recovery process to deal with his injury.
This particular type of injury is truly painful, and Lopez looked to be fighting through some pain in the hospital bed. Fast forward a few weeks and Lopez was able to begin roaming around on his new knee walker and just like Tamra Judge he too was able to use the iWALK 2.0 which also aided in his recovery.
David Grohl is one of the greatest rock musicians of our time. You may know him as the singer and founder of Foo Fighters, but unbeknownst to some, the drummer for another legendary band—Nirvana. The scooter model David Grohl was using was the Drive Medical 790 knee walker. This model has since been discontinued and replaced by the Drive DV8 Knee Walker, which we carry.
We can see that these alternative to crutches provide much more stability and happiness to those who use them. These are just some of the celebrities who have used knee scooters, but this method of recovery is one of the best ways to feel mobile and as normal as possible during an injury.
