Knee scooters help folks to get around without the difficulty and discomfort of using crutches. It makes it easier for people to move around their homes, outdoors, and at the office. Knee scooters can help keep users safe with their stability, thus reducing the risk of further injuries.
With the help of a knee scooter, people can return to doing most (if not all) of the activities they used to do before they got injured or had surgery.
Let's take a look at some of the stuff knee scooter users have been able to go back to doing:
Working at a hospital in any capacity can be a challenging job, especially during a global pandemic. But the work of these hospital workers must go on. A knee walker helps you get around quicker and more comfortably compared to crutches.
"Working as a Lactation Consultant in a hospital! Even with a hurt foot, I was still able to help new moms breastfeed at the bedside. The basket allowed me to carry supplies to patients and eased my workflow!"
Keeping an eye on the little ones
Keeping tabs on kids running around the house can be impossible with crutches—but not if you use a knee scooter instead. Cruising around the house is easy, even on your first day post-op.
In this intense climate of political discourse, one thing remains essential: exercising our right to vote.
If you're non-weight bearing but can drive (with the doctors okay), you can drive yourself around to do chores, go to your doctor's appointments, and even stopping by the voter's office or polling place.
A knee scooter can easily fold to fit in your car.
Learning new skills
Proper rest is vital during your surgery recovery. Some folks take the opportunity to learn a new skill or brush up on current ones. A knee scooter can help you move independently while you keep in shape, study, or rest your foot while you study.
Being able to move around without anyone's help allows you to do housework, go for walks, study, and work at your own schedule.
Going out for walks
If you're one to go out for daily walks to exercise and clear the mind, you can still roll around with your knee scooter.
Can you imagine not being able to put weight on your foot for six weeks? Can you imagine going on walks on crutches? Not the best idea—sounds like a painful one.
Fishing is a relaxing and meditative activity for many folks. It's a great way to help you let go of stress and allow your bones to heal. After all, a positive mental attitude can have an impact on your physical recovery.
Cooking can be a time-consuming task, albeit pleasurable. It demands you stand on your feet a lot, maneuver around counters, and move around the kitchen a lot. The great thing about a knee scooter is that it supports you when you need both your hands.
Visit and care for your horse
If you have a horse, you can still visit and care for it. Here we see a knee scooter user bathing a young Thoroughbred, though not everyone should attempt such a feat unless they have a good sport that cooperates.
Being able to leave the house and get around doing activities that you enjoy is a big plus of using a knee scooter.
Just because you have a foot injury does not mean you can't work out. There are plenty of upper body exercises you can do. Just be safe and protect your injured foot.
Enjoy the great outdoors
Knee scooters come in different shapes and sizes. Using an all-terrain knee scooter will allow you to cruise outdoor terrain easily. It ensures you have a comfortable ride outside.
Life doesn't have to stop because you're injured. You can fly with your knee scooter to visit family and participate in any traditions and activities.
