Students are well into the fall semester now, and back into the swing of classes, inter-murals and socializing. Back in my student-athlete days, I went into my sophomore year with crutches and a full leg brace due to a knee injury. Getting around a walking campus was difficult. They provided golf cart service to students who had similar injuries, but you would have to wait on the call and availability. Otherwise it was an extended and painful trip just to get to class.
The students who qualified for a knee scooter never had to use the golf cart service. If I had a knee scooter in college I wouldn't have had to skip my morning coffee, the Drink Cup Holder would have freed up my hands for that. I wouldn't have had to rely on my teammates to carry my food, I could have carried it in the provided basket like what the Swivelmate Provides. My dorm room was the furthest from the bathroom, having a knee scooter would have saved my armpits the pain from crutching down the hall, and with the turn-radius of the Swivelmate - navigating the tight dorm spaces wouldn't have been an issue.
I wasn't surprised to see how many college students in the last years have started taking advantage of knee scooters. The last thing you want to worry about in college is how you are going to get to class. Here is what some of our college student customers have to say about renting with us.
"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 kneewalker 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 kneewalker 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 kneewalker." - Alan R. UCF student
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
