Which is better a knee crutch or a knee scooter?
- There are better alternatives to crutches for when you need to take care of your foot injury; the two most popular: are knee scooters and a knee crutch.
They both have their pros and cons, so we would like to help you decide which one is the better choice for you.
The iWALK crutch alternative is a mobility device that allows you to walk hands-free with your injured leg off the ground. It replaces traditional crutches and knee scooters with a safe, stable and easy-to-use walking crutch.
The iWALK is designed for people who need to be non-weight bearing due to injuries such as ankle fractures, sprains, foot or toe injuries, amputations, Achilles tendonitis, and other non-weight bearing injuries that normally require traditional crutches or a knee scooter.
While the iWalk is a great choice for some people, it's not the best option for everyone.
A knee scooter is a two, three, or four-wheeled device that allows you to move around by resting your injured leg on a knee platform while your injured leg is elevated.
Then you push forward with your able foot and control your direction with handlebars like a bicycle.
It's often referred to as a knee walker, knee cruiser, knee caddy, leg walker, or orthopedic scooter.
Many people prefer them over crutches because they are almost effortless to use. Crutches cause a lot of strain and effort to use.

Whether you choose an iWalk or a knee scooter, you can regain your independence and to most if not all the things you used to do before your injury.
