How Much Is A Knee Scooter?
- A knee scooter, also known as a knee walker, is an excellent alternative to crutches to keep the weight off your injured leg (non-weight bearing) while maintaining a superior level of mobility and independence, hence why they're so popular.
When looking to get a knee scooter, you have to consider two options. You can rent one for the length of time you'll be non-weight bearing, or you can purchase one.
First, let's discuss some things to consider when purchasing a knee scooter.
Knee scooter prices range from a low as $100 to upwards of $450. More often, with the higher-end models, you can expect more features and better build quality. While it can be tempting to buy the cheapest model, here's something to ask yourself:
Do you want to heal and recover with a cheap flimsy knee scooter or a sturdy and reliable scooter?
When considering the cost of a knee scooter, it's is vital that you also consider the scooter's stability, comfort, and durability.
Going with Cheap
Cheaper knee scooters do not offer nearly the same quality of stability and comfort compared to the most robust ones. This is something you need to watch out for.
Nowadays, there are a lot of unknown brands with no reputation. A lot of them are knockoffs from China built from cheap materials. Because of the cheap materials, they don't last very long. Comfort and stability are not the first things that come to mind. The padding on the knee rest is very thin, which can pretty much feel like your knee is resting on a board.
There is nothing worse than fatigue caused by cheap materials and poor design, which causes discomfort and safety risks.
These knee scooters are solely designed to be as cheap as possible so they can sell for the lowest price.
Opt for Quality
The benefits of buying or renting from a reputable company is that you'll benefit from time tested knee scooter models. Just like cars, some knee scooter manufacturers make improvements based on customer feedback.
Buying quality knee scooters also comes with the company's technical support and customer service. These companies can help you troubleshoot any issue that may arise, or even help you with any questions on which knee scooter to choose, how to set it up or any helpful resource. This support is a great thing to have even more so if your recovery period is going to be a long one.
