Have you ever seen a decorated cast or wore one? Pimping out your cast is a great way to distract from the pain of recovery and it’s a chance for an individual to be expressive. There are so many cast designs and possibilities. We get photo contest submissions all the time from our wonderful customers.
These photos show what life with a knee walker can truly be like. Just because an injury has been suffered doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun with it! After all our goal is to help you with a happier healthier recovery!
Vicky from Virginia Beach
"Allowed us to keep our promise of taking our granddaughter to NYC for her graduation present. Thank goodness for the Americans With Disability Act - all those curb cuts!"
Why We Love It – That pink cast really stands out in Times Square. It’s not subtle which is actually a good thing. When surrounded by so many people on the streets of New York its important to have a bright color on to distinguish the injury and to try and keep people from potentially bumping into the cast. Overall, we are happy that Vicky enjoyed her trip and there’s nothing like a little pink!

Keith from McMinnville, Tennessee
"These photos were taken at the gym in the process of a workout. Sorry about the grim look on my face but when you work out it's serious stuff! I really do know how to smile."
Why We Love It – Keith chose a really good color for his cast that’s because it just about matches the color of the All-Terrain Orthomate Knee Scooter that he is resting his foot on. The All-Terrain Orthomate is perfect if you do a lot of outdoor work. The cast also looks pretty robust and for good reason. The wheels on this knee walker model were built for grass, gravel, dirt and more unstable surfaces. We aren’t sure if Keith knew the cast would match his model but it sure made for a cool picture!
David from Folsom, California
"Photo was taken in the front yard of our house in Folsom California. It provides me with easy access to the bathroom, bedroom, dinner, table and the knee walker also lets me get outside for exercise and take in a baseball game in San Fancisco with my favorite team. Easy access in and around crowded conditions I love the mobility."
Why We Love It – David looks like a baseball fan! You think? We absolutely love this photo David is wearing the colors of the San Francisco Giants. What is even greater is that he designed the cast to look like the team colors. The orange and black is unmistakable and it really made for an excellent photo opportunity. That’s going the extra distance!
Suzy from Allendale, New Jersey
"I was able to do some gardening work with my granddaughter on my deck. I was still able to get around in the yard thanks to The Swivelmate Knee Walker"
Why We Love It – There are so many things to like about this photo. Suzy has the ability to move outdoors thanks to the help of The Swivelmate Knee Walker. The small outdoor garden needed to be tended too and thanks to the knee scooter Suzy and her grand daughter were able to water and plant new flowers. We love the fact that the cast is green and fits right in with the garden. The smile on Suzy’s face says it all she was incredibly happy to do a simple everyday task that was made much easier with the assistance of a knee walker.
Maggie from Montclair, Virginia
"My 1st time outside after surgery a walk around the neighborhood. Saved my sanity!! I live in a 3 floor townhouse, so I have 2 walkers. I just don't go to the bottom floor! But can get around the living room, kitchen, bedroom and office floor!"
Why We Love It – The white leopard stripes are a nice touch to this cast. On a cold afternoon stroll Maggie certainly looked good as she showed off this nifty cast cover. We think it matches well with the jacket she is wearing and it also reminds us of the winter time. The best part is that Maggie was able to fully enjoy going for a brisk stroll while her Swivelmate knee walker.
Mark from Carrollton, Texas
"Taken at my sister's house where I was convalescing after smashing my ankle at work and getting it surgically put back together. (Notice the candycane cast for the Christmas season. This knee walker is a life saver. It is so much easier to get around on it than crutches. It doesn't even need to be folded to fit in the Honda Pilot! Great invention!"
This photo has a lot going on. First, it’s so awesome that the knee walker is covered in Christmas lights! It blends in with the tree behind it and we think that is incredibly cool. But how about the fact that Mark has a cast that looks like a candy cane! That is a subtle yet amazing touch that made this photo really stand out. The colors just totally pop out us and it’s just such a fun photo.
Brittany from New Caney, Texas
"My daughter, Brittany, is a huge Batman fan.... so she decorated her cast with a Batman emblem and put a little cape on the back so that when she was riding the walker it would flap in the wind. :) The knee walker was amazing!! It helped my daughter get around so much easier!"
Why We Love It – Shari's daughter Brittany got really creative with this one! We think she likes batman but that’s just us! Not only did Brittany choose a black cast she went all out with it. She even placed the batman logo on the front of it and named her knee scooter The BatWalker! That’s one of the best renditions of a knee walker and cast design we have seen. Kudos for Brittany going the extra mile!
Geoffrey from Orlando, Florida
"After tearing my Achilles I was set up to watch the World Cup in it's entirety and celebrate American Independence. I decided to be as patriotic as possible, at all times. I couldn't have been happier. I took the knee scooter everywhere with me and found people were always envious especially of the stars and stripped cast!"
Why We Love It – Geoffrey had Old Glory plastered all over this cast. Although a little hard to see it’s clearly visible and we love the support of team USA. The cast matches well with his outfit and he looks like one cool cat just standing there! Overall, we think this was solid choice for a cast design.
Great looking casts! We all know that even though casts can look great they are often uncomfortable. The good news is that there’s a perfect solution for an uncomfortable or itchy cast with Cast Comfort!
How To Stop My Cast From Itching?
Cast comfort can be applied through fiberglass casts, or directly to the skin under the cast to relieve itch. A thin plastic applicator tube allows patients to direct the cooling aerosol spray to problem areas.
Cast Comfort Anti-Itch Spray is a talc-based spray, which cools and reduces the itching usually associated with wearing a cast. Besides the relief it provides, the spray kills the odors too! This itchy cast relief spray comes with an easy to use extended length plastic applicator tube, enabling the user to reach deep inside the cast.
