More Information

  • Caution:
    To reduce the risk of accident

    - Before using the Knee Walker, you should be trained by a healthcare professional or dealer.
    - Engage the lock and practice bending, reaching and transfers on and off the Knee Walker. Do not use the Knee Walker by yourself until you have been properly trained, you have practiced with someone and you feel confident you can maneuver by yourself.
    - The use of the Knee Walker is individual to the person. You should develop your own methods for use based on your personal level of function and ability.
    - NEVER attempt a maneuver that has not been practiced.
    - Be aware of your surroundings when operating the Knee Walker. Look for hazards and avoid them.
  • Operating The Knee Walker:
    - The Drive Knee Walker is a mobility device that provides strength and comfort to anyone who may have an injury below the knee. It allows an even distribution of body weight by supporting half of the weight on the device and the other half on the non-injured leg. The device has a cushioned platform to support both the injured leg and ankle to make certain that no weight will be placed on the lower leg.
    - The device is designed for easy steering and stopping. Brakes are also featured on this device for controlled movement and safety.
    - Placement of injured leg on bench should be centered side to side and positioned forward to cover the full length of bench.
    - With injured leg on bench, stand as straight as possible (adjust the height of the Knee Walker as necessary).
    - With injured foot pointing down, the propulsion leg should be maintained as close as possible to the bench.
    - While on your toes, start out with small steps with propulsion leg. Concentrate on keeping that leg next to the bench. With practice, you should be able to move forward without deviating to the opposite side.
  • Using The Hand Brake:
    Do not use the Knee Walker if the brake system is not working properly.
    - The Knee Walkers brake is similar to a bicycle and also has a locking feature. - To use the brake, simply pull the lever with your finger tips toward the handle bar.
    - To lock the brake, pull the brake lever towards the handlebar and push down spring loaded push button (located on top of brake). When done correctly, push button with remain down and brake lever will be locked in place. Repeat for other brake.
    - To release brake, simply pull lever towards the handle bar. Push pin will pop up automatically.
  • Adjusting The Hand Brake:
    - For minor adjustment the brake adjuster located on the handbrake can be turned out from the hand brake countercockwise to tighten the brake, or clockwise to loosen the brake. Keep the cable adjuster nut against the hand brake.
    - If further adjustment is required, apply the same method of adjustment at the lower cable adjuster.
    - As you adjust the cable adjuster and the adjuster nut away from each other the brakes will tighten, and as you adjust them closer the brakes will loosen
  • Adjusting Handle Height:
    - To adjust the handle height, release the lock tab on the collar and adjust the handle to the desired height. Push the lock tab back to tighten.
  • Adjusting Seat Height:
    - To adjust the seat height, turn the adjustment knob located under seat counterclockwise until free of frame. Set seat to desired height and return adjustment knob. Turn clockwise to tighten.
