Using a knee scooter, also known as a knee walker, can offer several benefits, especially if you're recovering from foot or ankle surgery, or if you have a lower leg injury that requires non-weight bearing for healing.
Here are some of the Benifits of using a knee scooter:
A knee scooter allows you to be more mobile than crutches would. You can scoot around quickly and with less effort.
Stability and Balance:
It provides a stable platform, reducing the risk of falling compared to using crutches. This stability is especially beneficial when navigating through crowded or uneven surfaces.

Freedom for Upper Limbs:
Your hands are free when you are not moving, allowing you to perform daily tasks more easily than when using crutches.
Using a knee scooter typically requires less energy than using crutches, which means you can move around longer without getting as tired.

It provides a non-weight bearing solution that allows injuries or surgeries on the foot or ankle to heal.
