Do I Need A Knee Walker Basket?
- If you have ever seen a knee scooter, did it have a basket on the front? Some knee walkers come with them as standard, and some knee scooters come with out one, it all depends on the price and model you choose.
So What Is The Purpose Of The Basket?
If you have ever had the displeasure of using crutches you will know that utilizing both hands while remaining mobile can be a real challenge. This is the case with crutches. Often requiring two hands in order to support the full weight of an individual there is not much of a convenience that comes with using them.
Although some people may be able to use a backpack or have a friend/family member carry their belonging’s, its often inconvenient to reach into the bag and get what you need. This is not the case when using a knee walker with a basket and it makes traveling with a knee walker much simpler and easier.

The added convenience of having the items right at your fingertips far outweigh using crutches.
