Comfort vs. Cost

As with all products, there is a saying that mostly everyone has heard of. You get what you pay for. The field of knee walkers is no exception. Different model knee walkers have their own strengths and weaknesses. As you can probably tell, a $300 brand name knee walker is probably much more feature rich than its generic brand $100 counterpart.  Features aren’t the only thing you should be concerned about however.

If you’re looking into buying a turning knee scooter, there are several other factors you should take into consideration including: durability, comfort, stability, and additional support provided.


Pricing and Quality May Vary

Many of the cheaper models of knee scooters do not offer nearly the same quality of comfort during operation. This is something you really want to watch out for. There is nothing worse than fatigue caused by poor materials causing discomfort.

Cheap models often lack the adequate amount of padding required resulting in unnecessary amounts of pressure on your injured knee. Any knee walker made with quality will always include adjustable knee pads that can easily be adapted to fit most individuals.

In fact, that is one of the primary ways you would be able to identify the quality of a steerable knee scooter. The more adjustable the product, the more comfort it most likely provides.

A lot of the cheaper units can’t be adjusted resulting in a very unstable platform with almost a 50% increased chance of tipping. Cheap models also lack the adequate size for wheels making navigation through any type of rough material a major hassle.

As you might have guessed, these knee scooters are also manufactured with cheap materials that are more prone to damages such as rust or decay. It is a good idea to check for FDA certification before purchasing a knee scooter considering buying one that is FDA approved will save you a lot of future headaches.

Types Of Knee Scooters Available

Most importantly, cheap models lack the customer support that the ones made with quality offer. You really don’t want to be stuck with an oversized inoperable knee scooter that would be more useful as an oversized doorstop. A reputable company handles returns and exchanges hassle free and will be able to set you up with the equipment you require.

You want to go with a company that provides the type of support you need to satisfy your demands. Good companies make quality products and quality products result in fewer headaches.
