We rent and sell a range of crutch alternative products which are used for foot or ankle injuries or for recovering from foot or ankle surgeries. These products are designed to be easier and safer to use than traditional crutches. If you require some assistance in choosing the correct product then please contact us on 01 254 4406.
The Knee Walker is our most popular product. It is generally rented for 4-6 weeks. It's mainly suited for indoor use and usage on smooth and even surfaces. It can be used outside on concrete footpaths and tarmac surfaces but because the wheels are solid it works better and is more comfortable to use on smooth and even surfaces. If you will be outdoors a lot then we would recommend the knee rover.
The Knee Rover is very similar to the Knee Walker but instead of solid wheels it has pneumatic (air-filled) tyres. It's most suitable for outdoor use and on rough terrain. It's also about 2kg heavier and bigger than the knee walker so it's not as suitable to use indoors or areas with restricted space.
Our pediatric knee walkers are suitable for children and small adults from (3’6” to 5’4” tall) who cannot bear weight on their foot or ankle, yet want to remain active and mobile. Like the adult knee walker it is best suited for indoor usage or for use on smooth and even surfaces. Please note that the pediatric knee walker has a max user weight of 72 kg.
