One of the most significant advantages of using a knee scooter instead of crutches for your broken foot recovery—is the freedom to get around places effortlessly.
For his Picasso Baby song from his "Magna Carta Holy Grail" album, Jay-Z did something unusual for his music video—more of a performance art film. He performed for six hours in a small gallery room full of spectators at the Pace Gallery in New York City.
In the music video (linked further down below) you can see celebrity cameo appearances from Marina Abramovich (performance artist), Judd Apatow (filmmaker), actors Alan Cummings, Rosie Perez, Adam Driver, and Michael K Williams, artist George Condo, Fab 5 Freddy among many others.
Attendees from the crowed were allowed to participate along with Jay-Z—most notably, a lady with a foot injury on a knee scooter.
Effortless and Fun Mobility
Using a knee scooter to move around independently anywhere you want makes for a fun recovery. Like the lady with the scooter at the art gallery, wherever you go outside your home, it's almost 100% likely that they will allow you to use your knee scooter inside the premises.
This means you can use your knee scooter practically everywhere. Like for example...
Theme Parks (Disney's Epcot in this case)
Breweries (pictured here at Sam Adam's)
You get the idea.
Knee scooters are allowed practically everywhere—They are a medical aid device, after-all.
What is the Best Knee Scooter for Indoor Use?
Although pretty much all knee scooters out there can be used indoors, some perform better thatn others.
We like to say that the best knee scooter is the one that works with you, not against you.
The best knee scooter for indoor use is one that can navigate around tight spaces and obstacles effortlessly—without needing to make 3 point turns.
Our most rented and sold knee walker (another name for knee scooter) has a 90-degree turn radius capability. You can make tight corners and navigate around obstacles easily, no matter where you go. This model is the Swivelmate Knee Walker.
Among its standout features are:
- • Patented BeltDrive system that allows for 90-degree turn radius.
- • Adjustable knee pad to accommodate a left or right leg injury, this provides maximum comfortability.
- • Dual-sided hand brakes that are easy to lock for parking. Great if you need to stand up "locked-in" for a long time.
- • Disk brakes that allow for controlled braking—useful for ramps and inclines (very helpful at stadiums and arenas).

What's the Best Knee Scooter for Outdoor Use
If you lead an active lifestyle or you're out-and-about a lot, you might find an all-terrain knee scooter more helpful and comfortable than a traditional indoor scooter.
Our most popular knee scooter over the years for outdoor use has been the Orthomate—all thanks to its air-filled rubber wheels.
What Makes it so Unique?
What makes the Orthomate stand out from other all-terrain knee scooters, is it's hybrid indoor/outdoor design.
The manufacturer, TKWC, understands that most users need a knee scooter that excels in rough outdoor terrain and needs to be practical enough to use indoors.
A lot of all-terrain knee scooters, like the KneeRover, have oversized wheels. While it may sound good on paper—but in practice—they are bulky and cumbersome to use indoors. Not to mention, loading them in and out of the car can be cumbersome.

This concept of performing indoors in an art gallery is very fitting to the song since it references great artists like Mark Rothko, Jeff Koons, Francis Bacon, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Andy Warhol.
