Swivelmate Knee Scooter Boosts Quality of Life (A Testimonial)
- Knee scooters are an excellent alternative for those looking for more lightweight options aside from traditional crutches.
Not only are they easy to use, but they are also very—as many customers say, life-changing in helping you get around when you're on the non-weight bearing period.
Below we share some words of a Swivelmate customer's experience.
I had no idea how sad I was with the limitations of my mobility after breaking my ankle and the idea of 6 weeks on crutches terrified me.
My main concerns were:
How would I get around?
How would I work?
How would I cope?
My physiotherapist gave me her seal of approval for using a knee scooter as she has used it herself when suffering from a broken ankle. She said that I should definitely invest in one as soon as possible.
I was dreading the thought of being on crutches for 6 weeks – I needed to get out and about – into shops and around the office. I started searching online for a good quality, lightweight, folding knee scooter to give me some freedom and help me keep my sanity during this difficult time.

The Swivelmate Experience
I started researching different mobility products on the internet and came across the Swivelmate Knee Scooter. I liked what I saw and decided to give it a try.
The Swivelmate Knee Scooter seemed like a good choice as it offered all these extra features, and although it wasn't cheap at $399, it fulfilled my needs and was well worth the money.
I took a chance on this knee scooter and am glad I did. It is well built, lightweight and adjustable for ergonomics, smooth to use, folds easily for storage while not in use and will last just about forever because almost all the moving parts are made out of metal.

The knee scooter mainly came assembled. All that was needed to do was to adjust the knee rest into the base and adjust the handlebar height accordingly. After just 15 minutes of setting up and skimming through the instructions, I was scooting around. All I could do was weep tears of joy and relief.
Using crutches can be draining physically. Simple tasks like hopping to the bathroom can be a struggle. Even going to the fridge to get a bottle of water and be anxiety-inducing.
My quality of life immediately went from 1 to 100 with the Swivelmate. The Swivelmate changed all this and allowed me to maneuver easily around my small apartment.
I was able to get around tight spaces because it's able to do 90 degree turns.
I am so happy to regain my independence.
