If you are having foot surgery or any other non-weight bearing procedures like myself, you will become VERY dependent on these devices. I absolutely LOVE this knee-walker. It's built extremely well, and is very comfortable to ride. I've used it quite a bit now, and it truly is "all terrain." It is the only knee-walker that I've seen that has inflatable tires, which makes a HUGE difference. The three wheel design is also very stable, far better than a four wheel design. The cushion that you place your knee on is ACTUALLY COMFORTABLE! In summary, I'm SO pleased with this purchase. If you're a smaller person like myself, this is a perfect fit ... and for the quality of what you get, it's very, very reasonably priced.
Easy to get around inside or out
Rides smoothly. Have a hard time with crutches since I have a neck problem. This is def. the solution for anyone with the same problem. Easy to get around inside or out. Previously owned a cheaper model. Upgraded to this. You def. get what you pay for! Worth the investment.
This is such a versatile scooter, that without it -- I would not have been able to get back to work to pay the medical bills. It's a footstool, it's a chair, it's a "store-cruiser." Even though renting could cost $100.00/month, we paid less than $200.00 (a month ago) to buy and already paid for itself 5X over -- it's worth that much to me.
My review of the All Terrain KneeRoverR Steerable Knee Walker - $299
I'm 6'1", 245 lbs, 68 years old, and male. I'm also a retired Director of Information
After having and using this trike for almost 3 weeks. Bottom line is I love it and I'd buy it again. This thing is very solid, well-engineered, and extremely well-built! Yeah, it's $300 - but it's worth it.
Equally important - WATCH the You-Tube Assembly Video! The printed instructions do not cut it. It is easy to assemble (after watching the video) and even the tools required are included!
And no matter how "macho" you think you are, install the training-wheel stability-wheel on your weak side. This is important and might save at minimum a skinned elbow. Wichever knee you're going to rest on the pad is your weak side. As you go around a corner on toward the opposite side, you can easily tip over and unless you whip your bad leg down fast enough, you're going to crash. But with the stability-wheel, it's just that -stable.
I now have several miles on my Rover. Most of them speeding up and down the hospital's hallways. I've learned a few more things.
1. The hand brake is great! And by pushing the button, it sets the
parking brake! (on bare floors, the skid marks come up easily)
2. The easily removable basket is a must have - even if just to hold
papers, keys, purse, sandwich, etc.
3. When folding, turn the steering a tad to collapse the stalk beside the
seat when putting it in the car.
4. It's so much fun; you may need a bell or horn to get the slow folks out
of your way. (my wife hates it when I holler, "Varroooom, varoom!" as I
speed down the grocery aisles)
I use it everywhere; indoors and out, and bought the All-Terrain because I shoot pics of my grandkids' outdoor sports and need to "rove" along the sidelines!
